Anyone here using one in this way. Obviously streaming video is a no no but do you get on with it ok?
Having some issues with my broadband so just ordered a router that supports using a 3G dongle as failover
if the ADSL goes down

It's ok to do this if the goody bag has a data limit or you use one of the gigabag options. However it is
not allowed to use a goodybag with unlimited data, if you do your Internet will be blocked

yes, you can use your sim in a unlocked dongle, but you are better off buying a gigabag. with that you can stream and tether as well without breaking giffgaff rules on tethering.


If my answer resolved your query then please mark it as a ' solution '. Thank you!

hi,as well as having the right Goodybag (not unlimited data ) or any gigabag you'll still need to add some or all of these settings into your router for your dongle to work
