Mobile Broadband

Anyone from the UK got the Huawei B311, from Three - which is a mobile broadband? I checked with their customer services and they say it should work while am travelling / staying in Switzerland, and they assured me it should work normally

Re: Mobile Broadband

Why shouldn't it? It's also available to buy in Switzerland.

Re: Mobile Broadband

Thanks, I meant the package from Three as a provider, I wanted my contract to be with a UK company instead of here in Ch. But it seems after some research when abroad am only allowed 20GB. So its not feasible.

Have a look at giffgaff but they all have limits outside of UK.

Re: Mobile Broadband

Swiss prices, particularly for packages, are reasonably competitive. Why wouldn’t you go with a local provider. They all provid British TV!

Re: Mobile Broadband

@Landers, yes unfortunate, if it wasn't for the corona virus working from home all the time, I wouldn't mind, but as we are WFH for the force-able future I am going to order UPS broadband for 39fr... does anyone know for their deal, once can cancel before the 24 months, or do they need to stick to 24 months?

Sure you can cancel whenever you want but you'll need to pay them for the full 24 months. That's what a fixed term contract means.


For the other question, an advantage to having a UK mobile data plan is that you can use it in most of Europe including Switzerland within the normal plan. T&C apply.
