3 E5331 WiFi USB Dongle. 4.8 5 30 30
3 E5331 WiFi USB Dongle. I took a chance when purchasing this device as the 3 network coverage chart (and other networks) indicated an outdoor only signal for my rural area. So glad I did as it turns out to be perfect, set up, connectivity and speed are all excellent and it works fine with smartphone, tablet and laptop all connected at the same time (allows up to 5 devices at once). Had to wait a couple of weeks for new stock within 30 miles of home though so must be a popular product. 5/5? 09 July 2014
Great Broadband Replacement I bought this as I haven't got access to landline/broadband in my temporary lodgings and I couldn't be happier. It took about 5minutes to set up and I was surfing the web on my iPad, iPhone & laptop. You get 1gb to start you off too. The great thing is that it doesn't cut you off if you have no credit, it still lets you browse. The speed has only dropped slow once or twice but apart from that it really is quite quick. I would definitely recommend this. 15 April 2014
Great little gadget Works well, works with sky on demand, PlayStation kindle and laptop. Great item to get you out of a hole, beware mot recommended for downloading movies, music as the top up costs are very expensive. But for surfing or playing online games not too bad. 25 March 2014
Brilliant and does exactly what it says it does I needed to set up mobile broadband for a netbook in order to use Skype. Didn't know if the speed would be fast enough for this purpose but it is and I am thrilled with the result. It is used on the second floor of a hospital in Stafford and gives great connection and speed. I have not used it anywhere else so am unsure what it would be like in more rural areas. It was really easy to set up and I would highly recommend. I have since topped up which was also easy to do and a reasonable price.Fab 13 February 2014
Don't leave home without it This is an amazing gadget. Once charged just put it anywhere. It allowed me to connect wirelessly to the internet my laptop, kindle, tablet and phone plus connect them to my printer in another room. It can be used whilst recharging and credit can be topped up easily. I won't be leaving home without it 23 January 2014

Answer: 
No, I own a tablet and the WiFi works without a dongle. The dongle allows you to have internet access in areas where you wouldn't usually receive WiFi, for example in your car.

Answer: 
You need to check two things with the 3 network.
1. Is there 3 mobile data network available.
2. Is the dongle compatable with the band in Africa, if so what are the costs per mb of data.

Answer: 
Hey, thanks for your question.

Although the 3 E5331 WiFi USB Dongle does not need to be permanently plugged into the tablet you are using it with to work, it does require 1 permanent power source, be it a laptop, PC or mains power. It can be plugged into a tablet also but this doesn't necessarily have to be the case as when plugged into alternative power, your tablet can still be connected via WiFi.

Thanks for using Argos Q&A.

Answer: 
Hi Mick,

As many as you like, it is not limited to a number of devices, baring in mind this is a prepaid service so the more devices you connect the quicker the data will be used up. Also the speed will vary the more devices that are connected.

Hope this helps.

I apologise but we do not offer a trial service with this product. As this item will create a universal hotspot for Wi-Fi devices to connect to. You will be able to connect your Sony Xperia Z Tablet to this device.
