Just to repeat the link.... approximately 42,000 web pages or 630 songs.

Or Vodafone's sums say this: "You could surf for 100 hours, send 2000 e-mails and download 200 music tracks and 100 video clips."

Just make sure your firewall is upto date to stop automatic updates of your programs & OS. Best doing that via a home broadband connection.

which I use with a laptop. The dongle comes with its own connection software that monitors your usage and keeps a weekly/monthly/annual running total, so you know exactly where you are.

I imagine all mobile dongles have a similar system.
