only £600 for a netbook and 1 whole Gb a month on the internet - where do I sign up ?
Using Paris because there is no 'fcukwit' icon :-)
No chance of bundling phone and PC?
I want a data package to use with a "small cheap PC" and a phone. I can't be alone in this surely. For £35 a month I'd be happy with a mid-range phone and a PC I could use for most of the net access.
Is the 3G internal or via dongle?
Well, is it?
Better with Three?
Say £279 for an Asus 901, £30 for modem & £10 month PAYG for 1Gb. That maxes out at £549 over 2 years. Better computer, better coverage, and even less because you don't have to pay when you don't use it and you can switch to another better deal anytime.
No contest. Who uses the once great Voda these days and why?
Firstly @ John Latham its an internal HSDPA card, most likely Novatel. Not sure what bands or HSDPA/3G classes. Probably 3.6Mbps.
Bearing in mind it's internal thus hidden from luser I wonder how many customers will be ringing up Vodafone when something internet related f**ks up expecting them to fix it!
Hmmm... I have unlimited skype, msn messenger, push email from 3 separate accounts, and for a fiver a month, 3 gigabytes a month (separate from skype!) over hsdpa via bluetooth...
