Three Mobile Broadband
I recently signed up to Threes 15gb package at £15.00 per month thinking i could watch catch up TV etc but have been disappointed with bandwidth which does not stream the content fast enough. I normally spend £15.00 a month anyway but normal only use around 3 gig. I would not recommend this package if you plan to watch Youtube or Iplayer ect as it is worse than useless. Has anyone got this package, if so, how do you find it?

I can't comment directly on 3's package, but I do have the equivalent (3Gb) package from T-Mobile. Bandwidth is usually OK to view Youtube or BBC news video. However it does seem very sensitive to the overall activity on the mobile network & every so often I have to wait for the download to catch up. (Have to wait even longer when my local mast dies and I go over to GPRS - ugh!)
Mobile will I guess always be slower than fixed line broadband. It's still vastly better than the original 9600 bps!

The O2 broadband I've got in my iPad isn't nearly as good speed-wise, although coverage and reliability-wise it's fine.
