Re: Three dongle - 3g connects 4g doesn't


[re: jchamier] [link to this post]
 
The thing is, the Subject isn't correct. There isn't a Three dongle and I doubt if there ever was.

Some dongles are advertised as such, but on examination aren't. Even Three advertise one, but it is in fact a mini battery-powered router/Access Point with a USB charging socket.

Sorry, but I've owned them! There was a 7.2 Mbps one, and a 14.4 Mbps one, and a HSPA+ 28 Mbps one. All Three branded, mostly made by Huawei, and a couple by others. I didn't personally own an LTE dongle branded by Three UK.

You're looking at their current website, I'm thinking circa 2010 to 2015. I suspect they all vanished around 2018.

(Also thanks jchamier)

I stand corrected about the past, but they still refer to their dongle in their advert shown as a result of a this search. Click the link and you get this. That ain't no dongle, guv.

From that link:-

"When we start rolling out 4G, we'll nudge up our customers who have a 4G Ready device at no extra cost. With just a simple software update you'll enjoy trouble free switching."

Where did you find it?

Google "Three Huawei E3372". The device winging its way to me for today is a 2020 version sold by Amazon and not a third party.

The Huawei 3372 from Amazon is no secret. It came up every time I googled for dongles. Including the google results link I gave a couple of posts ago, £38.95.

My point is that lets hope it is better than the 2017 version I first had.
