Mobile broadband news

Apple Mac users who have struggled to find a dongle compatible with their Snow Leopard operating system can get online in a number of other ways, it has been claimed.

According to Electricpig.co.uk, computer users can use a SIM card to provide mobile broadband, freeing up a precious USB port and keeping costs low at the same time.

In addition to MiFi, signing up for Wi-Fi access is another potential avenue, the site claimed, although this may cost up to £5 per day unless you are in a free access zone.

Smartphone users can tether their device to their Mac and get online through its connection, Electricpig.co.uk explained, although this can potentially eat into people's data allowance.

A final option is to upload Windows onto the Mac system, it added – hardly the ideal option for loyal Apple customers but a way of ensuring value is gained out of the existing dongle after all.

Earlier this week, Electricpig.co.uk reported that dongles on offer by several broadband providers – including 3, T-Mobile and O2 – are incompatible with Snow Leopard.
