Got back home, uninstalled the 3connect software from the ZTE MF112 and plugged in the new Premium Dongle then installed the software and new drivers package.
The ZTE was faster than my land line but required very careful positioning for best performance. The E367 connected and I went straight to speedtest.net and the speed needle went to 5 and continued to climb. In comparison the ZTE usually went straight to 3 and climbed.
Both dongles were showing 5 full bars at my location but the E367 is noticeably faster and for the last few hours at least has consistently held to the high speeds.
Some speedtest.net results from the E367 this morning, all above 6 meg down and 1.6 up.

This has left my land line standing, I wonder what the speeds will be like when 3 upgrade their network again this year. This dongle in combination with a Samsung Galaxy S2 which will also be HSPA+ will provide Internet access at speeds I could only have dreamed of from my land line.
