Goes Like A Greyhound!
I use my dongle with a full-size PC brought about by Talk-Talk`s inability to run a service so was interested in this product to boost my T-Mobile signal. After fairly simple assembly signal was much stronger, I found you have to press until you hear a click to properly engage plug and like they say it does what it says on the tin. I`m spoiled for antanna`s having one in Norbury and another in Crystal Palace so direction is placed between the two but the long and short of it is it works well!

It really works
Although I am in clear site of the 3 mast only 2km away, my signal was poor at around 20%. I tried the clip antenna but this actually made the signal worse for some strange reason.
Changing to the High Gain antenna saw the signal strength go up to 47% and I was downloading at 5Mb at all times. By accident the antenna fell over onto its side - the signal then increased to 63% and my download speed is now 6Mb most of the time. It appears the 3 signal is polarised and the high gain antenna is obviously better left on its side!
I now have a stable super fast (for Ireland) broadband service with ping of 43ms, download of 6+Mb and upload around 1.2Mb with a 25GB per month allowance - brilliant.
Eat your heart out Eircom.
