Dear Sir/Madam

You may be interested to know a few tips about using the Econet Broadband Dongle

1. They are a whole lot faster than Dial up using telephone lines

2. Cost for a dongle is about $80

3. You pay up front for time – similar to a buddie card

4. Youngsters downloading all sorts from the internet should buy a 1GB at a time – cost +- $100

5. Normal users accessing the internet every day to see news web sites – probably buy $500 mb at a time - $75

6. If you just want to download emails you could buy 200mb for $40

7. All time only lasts for a maximum of 30 days

8. To check what you have left call *141#

9. This can be done by taking the simm card out and dialling as per normal cell phone or by clicking on the US$ sign and entering the *141# alongside ‘Input Code’

10. To have the best access call up Settings (Middle Icon) and then Preferences – choose the middle one UMTS / HSPA only and then Apply

11. There are certain times of the day when the access is slow – probably because lots use it at 8.30am and 6pm

12. Once the dongle is placed in the USB port and self loaded you click on Connect

13. There are 2 arrows displayed when Connected – if the one on the right has a speed of 0 KBPS then nothing is downloading – sometimes helps to disconnect and reconnect

14. Useful numbers for Econet - 703-672 / 704059

15. If you want to reduce the amount downloaded considerably then you need to switch off the automatic downloads of Windows – in Windows XP click on Start / Control Panel / Automatic Downloads – turn off automatic Downloads – Windows 7 – click on Start / Control Panel / System Security / Windows Update

Hope this helps your surfing!
