Yes a 2g only mast approx.1.5miles away.
But As I needed a backup to adsl (overhead cables) this device on a refresh contract was just what I needed. (it was on a good offer a week ago same package is now £6 more a month.
I intend to pay it off on the device plan so the wingle will have cost me £34 to buy and paying then £15 for 5gb a month is not bad.
But it suffers the usual o2 compression but this can be bypassed in the apn settings changing user name to bypass as per the guide on here http://www.thinkbroadband.com/guide/mobile-broadband...
Just tried it in my car and the o2 4g mast in Shaftesbury was picked up in the car park of my local super market in Stalbridge approx. 9 miles as the crow flies so this dongle has a good internal antenna with the option of connecting external antennas mimo via ts9 connectors.
