Get hassle free broadband speed access to the web on the move. Welcome the super slim and lightweight E156G. You get freedom from wires and speedy Internet access on the move all in a tiny 30g USB Modem. Plus you can use your new best friend as a memory stick, just add a MicroSD card to the slot and load up to 4GB of whatever you like.

The E156 is preloaded with our Birdstep dashboard, which is easy to use and automatically updates itself to its newest version available. It also links from your desktop straight through to My3.

Just plug the USB Modem into your USB slot and watch as everything auto-installs, it's quick and easy, and with HSPDA you can get broadband internet access speeds of up to 3.6Mbps.

To use your feather-light E156G you'll need a few things. Your computer or laptop needs a minimum of 50MB hard disk space, 1 free USB port, a Windows 2000, XP, Vista or and Mac OSX operating system.

So you wanted mobile broadband and you wanted it on the cheap, well this is what you get . Cheap mobile broadband is as someone else has already said is let down by the Three coverage and the slightly wonky software on the dongle itself. If you have no service for more than a few seconds, then you have to click the reconnect button, it wont reconnect to it on its own. It also has an irritating habit of not working inside any building I have been in. its rather unreliable, but if you want cheap , this is it ! On the good side ,when it works its great and quite fast, but to be honest that's not very often for me.

 Dont waste your time
