Huawei D100 router on 3 network by James Egan
Hello, I've signed up with 3 for their 15GB per month for £15 deal which includes a free ZTE MF627 usb modem. It all works okay via the usb port on my laptop but I quite like the idea of being behind a nat device and also sharing the connection with some other wifi enabled pc's I read about the Huawei D100 on the 3 website. Are they any good?

"Fred" wrote... Hello, Further to my ongoing battle with BT, I am very concerned about BT's lack of honesty and transparency with their broadband pricing. Option 3 is advertised as being 24pm. Yet I was offered it for £19pm until they said I was not eligible due to my on-going fight (see other thread). My neighbour has said that he has been offered it...

I fitted a splitter frontplate to the master socket. I then ran an 8 core cable to an extension in my study/bedroom which has a split telephone/computer outlet. Two of the cores are for broadband and three for telephone. I tried...

Anyone get good speeds from BT Broadband? by Terry
I have been asked to ask your opinion on BT broadband and how well it works. I have visited several people who are on BT Broadband and every one of them was not getting good speeds for their sync rate. So is anyone getting good speeds, or is BT commonly a slow service? The reason I ask is that my mate is considering signing up with Post Office Broadband, Broadband Extra I think they call...

I Love Plusnet! by Gribela
Hi all, I just want to share how happy I am with Plusnet. I signed up with them in December 08 to their 1 month bargain package which was £10 for about 3Gb of data per month, then within a couple of days of my kids downloading every thing they could get their hands on I smashed the limit and Plusnet throttled me. I called them and they upgraded me to the 15Gb package for £15 with no hassle...

Each month we were fined. it was only a few pounds per month but I asked BT if we could...
