No coverage on the Shetland Islands, 2G only.
Fair coverage from Fraserburgh to Inverness, a few holes in coverage though around Cullen.
Only 2G at the C&CC site at Speyside, same pitch dependant at Nairn.
Suspect poor or no coverage on the West coast of Scotland north of Ullapool but will report back on this in a couple of weeks.

Dongle is the name they use for the modem you plug in.

B...y Hell! Had to pay fifty quid for mine from Cphone Warehouse for a two year contract. Now it's free!!

Best value on the market...and (probably) best coverage

It's great. And for anyone not used to broadband - it's not techy, just plug it in to your USB and it will install itself and off you go! It's 15 a month, the equipment (dongle) is free, and you can download p to 3GB a month which is fine if you don't want to stream videos etc. You have to sign up for 2 years.

The only word of warning I've heard is to be careful you don't go over the download limit, cos it's expensive if you do. The software tells you how much you've downloaded however MoneySavingExpert site says it's good to get a separate, more accurate, program to keep an eye on how much you download.

Don't expect too much if you come to Norfolk. I bought one last week on the 10 for 18 months deal, and wasn't sure if it was working. Had to go into Norwich to check it out and worked fine there. Out in the sticks there are not too many G's about, but it did manage to download 12 emails in 23 minutes on Sunday!!

No signal at Moreton in Marsh CC or Old Oaks at Glastonbury - not true it was showing 3(R), must be equivalent of dial up , but it would not show a page before I got fed up of waiting

At Pembrey CC it was HSDP at 3.2mbps one day and 3.6 the next

Three mobile

Hi

My pal took a THREE contract out earlier in the week and said the speed was fabulous at his home near Harrogate. He has used it a his mate's house near Wetherby - and nothing. Also tried at Boroughbridge - and still nothing.

It seems - and I hope I could be wrong - that when the THREE dongle works - it works well. When not in a 3G area or what ever it is called, it seems to perform worse than T mobile - certainly was the case at Boroughbridge when I had a THREE dongle.

Anyway, the half price offer is still on for existing THREE customers, so I think I will take one on regardless - even if for use only in Italy etc. I can keep my T mobile PAYG as a back up.

Russell

Has anyone had success with the THREE dongle when not in a Turbo area etc?
