Default amazing wifi

I recently moved to benajarafe, and was fed up of having wifi installed, costly business when you move as in torrox, had to have it re-installed and that costs. I found the ideal answer and got wifi here but my modem is as big as a mouse you would use on pc. Its fast and where I go I can take it with me in my bag if I want. If anyone needs a good wifi or interested in this just inbox me can put you in touch with the guy who came to me, lovely lovely man. Its not expensive but wont put that on here. Im very very funny with the internet and Im pleased as punch with this. with this there is no re-installing at all anywhere and you can use it anywhere which to me is worth its weight in gold.

Are you referring to a dongle?

Oh no its not a dongle, its the size of a computer mouse, you turn it on, it picks up the 3g signal anywhere, I took it to torrox with me to show my friend there as she wants one she can take to La Herradura (dont know how that is spelt), once you have one you just take it with you, its so simple, you charge it up and that lasts 10 hours. Ive taken it all over and you can also connect to it with your mobile. I really think its amazing.

It's a MiFi dongle. They only work when in reach of a 3G/4G signal. As they "share" the bandwidth amongst attached devices, you'd better be sure that your monthly tariff/data cap can take the pain.

Be particularly careful when attaching Windows laptops via these things. Your laptop "sees" an internet connection and immediately starts to check (and dpwnload) updates for the OS, the anti-virus software, Adobe Flash, Adobe Reader, Java, etc. etc.

its not a dongle at all its not attached to my laptop at all. I turn it on and it picks up the signal straight away, and Ive tried it in many places, never have a problem at all.

I know what it is, and they are referred to as dongles, not withstanding the lack of physical connection to your device.

I hope you continue to be happy with your chosen solution.

Im sure I will be, it says its a pocket sized state of the art, wireless 3g router which supports HSPA and 3 G broadband connections. All internet is not cheap but this is not as expensive as the wifi I had in torrox which was double the price.

How does it work then? Is it based on normal mobile networks (Movistar, Orange etc.)? Do you have to have a SIM in the router or are you billed via an account when you log on.

I think it would be quite useful if you could give slightly more detail without advertising (if that's possible).
Lolito and Aron like this.

I had something similar 6 or 7 years ago. It was a small 3G receiver and wifi hotspot router. It worked quite well but was very dependant upon location for quality and reliability of service. The service is better nowadays I expect.

I would be interested but I would need to try it first at the location I intend to use it. I would also need to know the usage limits as I watch telly on my laptop.
