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.

  • 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.

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

  • Excerpt: I used this USB modem for about 2 years. I was really upset to find out it never preformed as it said. It's very slow, no matter where you are. The USB connector is made very cheaply and does harm to your USB port. I am lucky i have 4 USB ports on my laptop or i would have had a high repair bill.
  • Pros: None
  • Cons: Slow, Harms USB Port, Cheaply Made .

  • Excerpt: It's drivers have caused Blue screen of death (aka BSOD) on my HP laptop windows XP2, three times now within 2 days. The 3rd BSOD occurred even without the modem connected or the 3G broadband interface software running, so that narrows the problem down to the drivers installed now permanently...

  • Excerpt: Three days in.... well, limbo, actually. The Huawei E220 has several glitches; slow speed, browser freezing, site disconnection, to name a few. The "comprehensive" instruction manual at the three.co.uk site, and included with the product has little useful information - and no instructions about how...

Awful modem

crimerepo..., Ciao
19 April 2008
  • Excerpt: An employee of the UK company called 'Three' has told me they have an issue with this wireless modem I have. Although this has been contradicted by the company, it does appear to be the type of modem I have been using that is at fault. However, it has not been easy to isolate this problem.
  • Pros: None
  • Cons: Prone to causing the BSOD
