We were over the moon when we heard last week that we’d won no less than five awards at the recent Broadband Genie Road Trip awards. Now we’re not ones to brag, but that is some haul! We won; Best mobile broadband 2014 Fastest mobile broadband 2014 Best mobile broadband coverage 2014 Best 3G mobile broadband network 2014 […]

Three cleans up at Broadband Genie Road Trip Awards 2014.
Time for a quiet evening in front of the box. Let’s see what’s on – Breaking Bad, maybe Game of Thrones, Arrested Development, perhaps a bit of Take Me Out (the guiltiest of guilty pleasures). Heck, maybe we’ll watch the footie or check out something fancy on Sky Arts, Oh…static. Yeah, we really should have remembered to switch from analogue.
Pick yourself up the works, disciples of really great telly; sign up to an 18-month Virgin Media Premiere Collection, including over 200 channels, a TiVo box, an extra HD box (so you can watch in the bath as well), broadband, and more, and for just £1 you’ll get the first 6-months half price, as well as a £75 welcome gift if you order between 19th – 28th August 2013. And just to do our part – we’re throwing in £50 kgbkash, redeemable against the cost of tons of our awesome products.
When purchasing an item from the list shown on the link above, receive 12 months free internet (£13.50 line rental to pay)
The cheapest item i could find was a Canon print for £59.95.
Seems like a good deal to me.

Why pay for mobile broadband? Buy a Samba SIM now for £2.99 + p&p and never pay for broadband on the go again.

Samba is the smart way to get connected – we give you free internet and in return you select and watch high quality adverts. You choose what to watch and when to watch it.
Samba is available for tablet and laptop owners & we use the best mobile data network (Three) in the UK.
If there is one thing better than mobile data, it is free mobile data. So a company promising to give away mobile data is always going to attract plenty of interest.
The idea behind Samba Mobile is simple enough. The service, which piggybacks on 3’s network, offers just data – no calls – either via a microsim, or a conventional USB dongle. The microsim is aimed at tablet users, with the service initially available for the iPad. The dongle, made by ZTE, should work with any PC or Mac, the company claims.
The quid pro quo is that subscribers need to “earn” their free broadband access, by watching adverts or clicking on links to affiliated retailers. This creates a bank of credits for mobile data.
The basic microsim costs £5, and the dongle with a SIM, a reasonable £25. But the mechanics of earning the mobile data allowance are a little more complex.
Samba says it will be concentrating on high quality ads and movie trailers. The more ads you watch, the greater the data allowance you earn. An average ad earns 3.5MB, so the company calculates that watching four and a half ads a day would earn 525MB of data. This is more, they say, than the average smartphone user goes through in a month.

This week we’ve introduced a brand new product to our broadband range. It’s the first time it’s been launched in the UK, and it’s designed for the significant chunk of the population, especially renters and students, that have told us they want Wi-Fi at home, just without the phone line and the lengthy contract.
So we’ve designed Web Cube, and it’s something that we’re really excited about.
The Web Cube’s Wi-Fi signal is powered by our 3G network, so it comes ready-to-go with a mobile broadband SIM card. It’s really easy to set up – just plug it in, turn it on and connect using the name and password supplied in the box. You don’t need a phone line to get going, as long as it’s plugged into the mains and your SIM is inserted, our network will do the rest.
The Web Cube is HSPA+ enabled to the 21.1Mbps technical standard, to deliver typical download speeds of 2-5Mbps, comparable to those of entry-level fixed-line broadband solutions, with the potential to reach a maximum download speed in excess of 10Mbps. Up to five Wi-Fi enabled devices can be connected at any one time, including smartphones, laptops and tablets, and it has a range of up to 30 metres.
Because the Web Cube is brand new to the UK, before we take it nationwide we’ve chosen to launch in a few key cities first. We want to test the market, so we’ve gone to Leeds, Glasgow and Edinburgh, some of our most successful areas for Mobile Broadband, to kick things off.
We hope to be able to roll-out Web Cube nationwide very soon, so if you’re not in Glasgow, Edinburgh or Leeds but you’re still interested, you can register your details online and we’ll be in touch when we have more information.
In the meantime, if you manage to get your hands on one, or if you know someone who has one, we’d love to hear your feedback.
