Customer reviews and ratings

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

Answer: 
It is 3g device, so the best speeds you will get are the same as for any 3g phone, and you have data cap limitations too.

But it will work, depending on the quality of signal it is picking up.

If you have a smart-phone you can tether to the 3g of that.

I currently have to use Vodaphone Sure Signal as there is no Vodaphone (or anyone else's) signal in the area. (i) will the R206 work via this set up ? and (ii) will the R206 have to be registered with the Sure Signal ?

Answer: 
The vodafone sure signal boosts the 3g signal in that area as well. As long as you register the sim number of the r206 to the sure signal box you should get good signal on the r206 (only as fast as your broadband).

Although the sure signal works off of your home broadband so not sure why you just don't use your broadband wifi whilst in the house rather than your Vodafone data allowance? As soon as you leave the house the r206 will only be as good as the Vodafone network in that area.

Answer: 
Hello,

The Vodafone R206 Pay As You Go MiFi creates its own indepenent wifi signal and doesn't require a connection to Vodaphone Sure Signal. The devices won't interfere with each other in any way. Having the R206 alongside the Sure Singal just means you'll have a choice of both a wifi hotspot and 3G available to you.

I hope this is helpful.
