I don't know why people are giving this a bad review. As a light mobile broadband user (I've got broadband at home) this is a perfect solution! Forget the other networks 30 day packages! Yes you do get more for your money but Vodafone 1Gb for £15 does not have an expiry. The 1GB will last until you use it completely up. No thats a good bonus!!!!

Sure it's quick but the Internet images are very poor, customer service is poor too.
In order to access the Internet fully you have to prove you are over 18, which you can only do with a credit card.

 Best one I could have got

I wanted something as backup if the net went down at home and also to use on the go.
This does both.
As stated if your doing stuff that uses a lot of downloading it will eat up your money, this also includes playing games online.
I tested it with Killing floor and I used more money in half an hour than I did in a month normaly.
Surfing the net, checking emails, buying online, forums and browser based games don't use much money.
As a backup it's great as you only need to use it once every six months to keep it activated.
You can use it outside the UK but your money will go in a flash as it's worse than using a mobile.

So if your doing a lot of downloading or game playing online then don't get this.

For surfing the net and such and/or backup for your home internet then you can't go far wrong.

But make sure of coverage where you will be using it before getting it.

As per the other reviewers I totally agree this is a cracking deal as its not a monthly contract and the data allowance doesn't expire at the end of the month. I bought one as I just wanted to judge what sort of consumption I needed as you hear horror stories of people getting lumbered with huge bills. Having used it now I don't actually think I need a contract one as the credit seems to take ages to use. I don't use it for downloading music or watching BBC iplayer.. just the standard checking of emails / web and a bit of skype/messenger. I was worried that the speed may be an issue as it is half the speed that you can get with a Vodafone contract USB dongle. The speed I get is more than ample for the mobile use. Save your money!

After setup I tried connecting and kept getting a message to change the modem to your default which it already was. I googled the message and quickly found that all I needed to do was to reboot the machine with the dongle connected. Spot on works everytime.

If you are like me and been considering one of these for ages then just buy one... you will not be disappointed.

 fast but not worth it
