my name is Dirk and I am from germany. I am on holiday in Dymchurch (Postcode TN29 0TG) in summer and I am looking for a mobile internet connection for my netbook for 1 week and my apartement has no internet or wifi connection.
I have now seen the offer "Three ZTE MF112 dongle incl. 1 GB PAYG" for less than 20 GBP. Something like that is exactly what I am looking for. If I have a look at the 3G coverage map of the different providers (http://www.compare3gmobilebroadband.co.uk/3g-coverage-uk.htm) I see that I can only connect to Three (Outdoor only) or better Orange in that area. But I have not found an Orange all-in-one offer PAYG including dongle like the Three package noticed before.
Now my questions:
1) What is your experience: Is 1 GB enough for one week reading mails twice a day and for e.g. opening 30 web pages per day (ebay, news,..., no downloads, no music)?
2) Do I need a UK postal address when logging in using 3G by using a (Three) PAYG account? Or is it just "connect dongle and go"?
3) Is there an Orange PAYG offer similar to the Three offer or any better offer?
4) Is there something else I have to know using mobile broadband in the UK.
Sorry I am not so familiar with the english network knowledge, so I need you help.
Thanks and best regards,
