Vodafone R206 Pay As You Go MiFi - White. 3.7 5 23 23
easy to set up The hardest part of getting online with this unit was getting the back off the case to insert sim card. Once switched on everything is simple. Speed and coverage are great, usually fast enough for video streaming. Battery life not brilliant but good for a few hours browsing between charges and can be used whilst charging. Topping up is not too much drama as long as you set up a Vodafone account, easier to phone 191 customer services the first time but after that the links are easy to follow. 08 July 2014
Does the job well Not the most straight forward to set up, and speed is obviously not as fast as broadband, but as mobile internet works brilliantly and does exactly what you'd expect! 25 June 2014
Easy to use. Happy I got it Easy to use. No problems with connection. Transfer could be a bit faster (sadly I've got spoiled by my broadband speed:D ) But having internet access in your pocket, whenever you want it is beautiful. It works nicely even with few devices connected to it. No wires no problems. Briliant and simple 24 June 2014
Lovley Product Tried it at home worked fine. Bought it for use at the Brighton Marina. Worked like a charm each day. 24 June 2014
Vodafone signal is shocking, which is ironically the reason I bought this, to give mobile data in dead spots to my Vodafone mobile. Unlocked it and inserted 3 PAYG data SIM. Brilliant and cost much less than buying the 3 MiFi. Now what should I do with the included 2Gb Vodafone SIM that's of no use to me without a Vodafone signal... Recommended, but only in the configuration described above 17 June 2014

Can this device hub be installed on a Macbook Pro?

Also if your data runs out, will you be informed or will you be automatically charged extra for additional data?

Thank you

Can I use this in Turkey by putting in a Telsim sim card. Telsim is actually part of Vodafone. At present the Vodafone internet dongle I have gives me full service using the Telsim sim card on my laptop but I want to use several tablets connected by wireless.

Answer: 
Yes, it is basically a portable wifi box. Its only tiny but a great little product and has great signal, speed and range. We had two mobile phones and a tablet all connected at once and all worked with no major lags or issues. Definitely worth purchasing. Good luck.
