Consumers are now able to sign up for cut-price mobile broadband services courtesy of T-Mobile.
The firm is offering its Mobile Broadband 615 USB sticks at half price, down from the normal £19.99 purchase price to just £9.99.
As a result, pay-as-you-go dongle users can get up and running with T-Mobile broadband for a lower cost.
Dongle customers are able to use their USB modem to access the internet on their laptop wherever they go.
All they are required to do is plug the dongle into a USB port and connect the modem to the mobile internet.
The T-Mobile 615 USB modem - which comes in a black or pink model - works equally well with Windows 7 or Mac software.
With space for a 4GB memory card, the dongle allows users to store photos, files and music.
Once they have purchased their T-Mobile dongle, consumers have the choice of a range of pay-as-you-go mobile broadband tariffs.
Customers are required to pay £2 for one day's access to the internet.
Alternatively they can pay £7 for a week, or £15 for a month, depending upon their intended level of dongle use.
There are no monthly contract obligations with the service, meaning customers are free to use the USB modem as and when they choose.
Some may wish to rely on mobile broadband for their main web connection, while others will use their dongle on an ad hoc basis.
As customers only pay for what they use, the dongle deals offer maximum flexibility to broadband users.
T-Mobile is owned by Everything Everywhere in the UK, having merged with rival broadband provider Orange in 2009.
