    Later today you'll find out for yourself
     
  3. They don't work any where else so i don't know why that would change at HMS Sultan.
     
  4. They let you have your mobile at Raleigh???!!!!

    WTF has my beloved Navy become? Next you'll be telling me you had a duvet and weren't allowed to go swimming in the sceptic tank!

    Concur.

    Whenever I've used one of these supposed Mobile "Broadband" sticks they are slower than the old 'dial-up' connection.

    Doubtless they will speed-up eventually but even off-peak they are slow, even if you can get a signal. You can get a signal at Sultan, but it's no faster.
     
  6. 3 is the worst network on the planet. I could only ever get a 'roaming' signal when I was at Sultan and none at all when I was based at Culdrose or Yeovil. My advice? Ditch it and go for a contract with a proper phone company.
     
  7. Agree with tomleecee, I was on 3 before and they f'ed me about rotten. They're cheap though.
     
  8. I'm here at Sultan using my 3 Broadband dongle to speak to you so yeh it does work lol. Slow as **** though.
