Dongle Testing

I'm test driving a cute little USB modem that you stick into your laptop to get Mobile Broadband wherever you go. No need for a wireless hub - and you don't need to be near a hotspot. The software installed in moments without a single hitch, and it made an immediate connection for me. Connectivity is available as Pay As You Go or on a contract. Cost varies depending on usage, with deals at £10, £15 and £25 per month. And the dongle itself is free on one of these contracts. Next week I'm going to try it in the car - to see if it can hold a connection whilst I whiz my babe magnet round the M60, which is Manchester's answer to the Boulevard Periferique.
