O2 USB Modem E160
Advantages: easy to install and cheap
Disadvantages: data does not roll over
So i ended up buying the mobile broadband becuase it was on offer at my local o2 shop. It was half price and i got it for £10, i do have a laptop and thought for £10 why not?
This is the pay and go version and that i like very much, just because i dont use it all the time and i thought that if i go on contract il just be paying for something i dont use.
The device itself is very easy to use and to set up. You just plug it into the laptop and then it installs itself. Alot easier than if you had to use a cd. Wants its installed the o2 connection manager will come up and it will auto connect to the o2 netowrk. You can then click buy access in the bottom right hand corner of the connection manager. This connection manager makes things very easy to use beacuse you can see all the wifi hot spots available in your area and you can also view how much data you have left.
There are there top ups to buy, £2 for the day (500mb), £7.50 for the week (1gb) or £15 for the month (3gb). If you have any data left after the day, week or month is up this does not roll over, which isnt fantastic!
The spped of the modem is good and i have never really experienced any problems with it. I would advise everyone to get their reception checked if they are using it in the house.
One thing i like about it aswell is that you can stick a memory card init and use it as a pendrive too.
Overall a great product that gives you a lot of flexibility and a great price.
Summary: a great piece of kit
