Only offers me a £10 bundle? Do I need to access it via mythree or topup through a phone?

edit - found it through my three under 'internet' rather than 'mobile broadband'. So what's the difference?

M.S


I believe internet is for use on a phone only, whereas mobile broadband can be used for tethering to a laptop.

The £5 bundle does work as internet access via a pc/laptop. I had it connected via orange using my Diamond and it was working fine (although slightly slow!)

What speeds are you getting with the £5 one?
Mark, can you try in a 3G area ad let us know what download speeds you are getting as Paul lives way out in the sticks (Norwich) and so can't get 3G?

He who asks a question looks foolish for 5 minutes. He who doesn't ask a question remains foolish forever.

Yeah, sorry but I do live in the middle of nowhere, in fact I've never seen Hutchinson 3G coverage down here....

Don't think they ever bothered with Devon (Even though the coverage map states that I have HSPDA coverage!)

Is this still working for you all? It worked OK for a week or so but now Pocket Explorer just says opening and that's as far as I get. Receiving emails still works though!

Anyone able to confirm if they can still access the internet on the 3 network using a 2g connection. I'm able to connect perfectly on 3g but when my phone switches to 2g it no longer works. I thinking a hard reset may be needed if it is working OK for the rest of you.
