As most modern laptops don't need an additional dongle in order to receive wi-fi
I rather assumed that the OP was asking about mobile broadband via a cellular network,
BICBW.

Unless your friend has need to be able to use the laptop anywhere
anytime, he/she should just sit outside any McDonald's or Pat a
Pain and use their free unlimited wi-fi. If the friend goes
inside McD and buys a coffee he/she will be able to find a table
with a mains socket nearby to the use of which McD do not object.
