    This can be bought online if one has an ac.uk email address and a
    promotional code. Anyone know what the code is?

    Why would you expect it to be faster? That's pretty close to what I
    got with the dongle.

    About 1Mbps down and 50k up using the Huawei E220 dongle (from a B&B
    farmhouse near Ross-on-Wye at the weekend).

    Be careful if you get the ZTE dongle - it can be dog to install. My
    local 3 store has a pile returned that they've had to swap for the
    Huawei.
