Pay-as-you-go — also known as PAYG — mobile broadband gives you the same connection speed without the hassle of signing a lengthy contract.
A Wi-Fi dongle is a device that plugs into a USB port on your computer. Through this, you'll have a wireless connection which you can use on the go, whether that be in a cafe, your local park or on your daily commute.
