***Good Mobile
Broadband speeds depend on 3G coverage in your area. You can check signal
strength by checking signal bar on any 3G enabled phone from the same
provider. Also some providers and resellers offer a return policy so you
can buy and return if signal isnt good enough.

For best coverage with mobile broadband use a 3G wifi router (also called a 3G Access Point).
This allows you to position your 3g modem where the best 3g signal is available and access it using PC or laptops wifi. This also means you can share your 3G
internet connection with serveral devices (laptops, PCs, Games Consoles, Wifi
Smart Phones etc.)

Please contact provider for details on coverage, costs and returns policies.
Note – Always confirm with the provider on weather any service is available in your area and remember that most services have a download limit.
