Group test: what's the best 3G dongle?

The best mobile broadband packages in the UK

PC Advisor reveals the best 3G dongle and mobile broadband package available in the UK right now.

5. Edimax 3G-6210n

With good range but very slow throughput the Edimax 3G-6210n is one of the better 3G routers out. However, it can’t quite cut the mustard when compared with other standalone wireless routers. A good travelling companion.

4. T-Mobile Web n Walk mobile broadband service

All in all, T-Mobile has a strong mobile broadband offering, providing decent speeds and coverage. Definitely one to consider.

3. Three Broadband Lite

Reasonably priced, with solid coverage and a good selection of easy-to-use dongles, Three is indeed a magic number.

2. Virgin Media Mobile Broadband

Running on T-Mobile's network, Virgin Media Mobile Broadband provides decent 3G speeds, and the subscription cost is in line with the best deals on the market.

1. Vodafone USB Modem Stick

While HSDPA and even traditional 3G isn't available everywhere, those able to access Vodafone's faster networks could find the USB Modem Stick a life saver.
