When you go out searching for the best 3G dongles, in fact you get several options to choose from. Besides being slow, most of the dongles are available with locked SIM. When there are so many cellular service providers to extend their services for SIMs to have 3G capacities in browsing, it would not be deemed an act of maturity to buy a dongle with a locked SIM, meaning the dongle cannot be used by any other SIM or data card by other service providers. In fact, none of these locked SIM 3G service providers is having a network that covers the length and breadth of the nation. You will naturally face problem at a place if a particular service provider does not coverage at that place.
In the light of the above insight, let’s list out five such dongles, which can be beneficial for your purpose.
