A fantastic modem that was originally provided by Three.

  • Excerpt: For a couple of years when I first met my husband he did not have a fixed internet connection and then we both ended up using wireless 'dongles' to keep in touch when away on business courses and other things that kept us away from home. When the first package was taking out we had to pay around £40 for the modem and then be tied in to a contact for a year before being able to cancel.

a good dongle, worth the money but not perfect

  • Excerpt: The Huawei u220 is a great little dongle that I have used for over 2 years without too many problems. The signal at my house(in a little village) is usally 4 or 5 out of 5 and the speed is good. It installs quickly on windows xp/7 and can be installed in Linux too without too much fuss.

Seems to work ok

  • Excerpt: I received one of these Huawei E220 wireless mobile modems free with a 2 year subscription to a mobile internet package, they also threw in a laptop. Pretty good offer it seemed at the time. The laptop is a little worse for wear, but the modem is in pretty good nick and still works. It's HSDPA, which after working with the telco industry a few years ago I know stands for High-Speed Downlink Packet Access. It also supports 3G, GPRS and UMTS.

Prefect device for getting online nearly anywhere. But don't expect it to be as fast as home.

  • Excerpt: I bought one of these dongle's 2 years ago and have been really impressed by it. Its given me fast and reliable mobile internet (on 3 UK) pretty much everywhere i've tried it. I've used it a lot on my laptop in the back of the car on long journeys and had no trouble on most motorways and dual carriage ways (I find I get travel sick using it on winding single carriage ways).

  • Excerpt: I've got this USB dongle now, with my T-Mobile SIM and it's connected to my Vigor2800 ADSL router/firewall which is compatible so now I have backup to my ADSL and can ever do VoIP ! I'ts a bit expensive though.

  • Excerpt: Out of the box supported by this 3rd party connection manager (don't like the standard T-Mobile software) and speeds are very acceptable! Now if only there was something for Linux that was as easily to use ...

Great compatibility and performance

  • Excerpt: I have it working perfectly with my Macbook Pro and ASUS EEE (Linux) obviously it'll work on Windows too. I have been using it with a PAYG sim on the 3 network.Make sure you get the 7.2Mbps firmware upgrade, it seems to improve the connection even if you are not on a network that's capable of that speed.

HUTAWEI E220 OTTIMA DIREI!!

MLF13, Ciao
17 January 2010
  • Summary: Con un design piccolo e spartano ad alta velocità, Huawei E220 Modem USB mini ridefinisce il concetto di moda per l'élite. La creazione irresistibile dispone di velocità fino a 3.6Mbps,ma con gli ultimi aggiornamenti gratuiti sul sito HUAWEI si arriva fino a 7.2Mbps e si possono usare tutti gli operatori .Niente da invidiare sulle nuove KEY anzi ne ho usate tanti ma questa per me e' SUPER,non si disconnette mai soprattutto usando programmi P2P.
  • Pros: AGGIORNAMENTI DAL SITO PRODUTTORE
  • Cons: DESIGN NON AL TOP

Utmärkt 3G modem som fungerar på de flesta ställen

henrikwango, Ciao
29 July 2009
  • Excerpt: OK 3G modul Som jag har sett på många ställen så säljer Telia, 3 och Tele2 samma 3G modul till sina abbonemang om trådlöst 3G bredband. Eftersom modulen i sig är samma så fungerar de lika dant, men lite beror nog på programvaran som man måste installera. Har man telia, som vi har, måste man installera Telia Connect , andra program för andra abbonemang. Denna modulen är liten, behaglig, snygg och enkel att använda.
  • Pros: OK hastigheter, Bra täckning, Fungerar alldeles utmärkt (väldigt mobil)
  • Cons: Priset utan abbonemang,
