Many thanks, Fergus
Vodafone say their PAYG dongle doesn't work on Macs:
"This product is not Mac compatible" (from their website - and
confirmed by the Vodafone store).
T-Mobile dongles are Mac happy, but have no coverage at all in
3 are Mac happy, but I'm told the service is patchy at best ... was
hoping that someone with some local knowledge might have some
experience they could share.
I can run XP on the Mac via boot camp or VMWare fusion, but the
Vodafone shop say the dongle still won't work with Mac hardware even
if I have booted into Windows ..... this seems strange to me ... would
have thought a usb dongle would work with Windows drivers irrespective
of being on top of Mac hardware ... wondered, as well, if anybody has
a Vodafone dongle and is using it under boot camp/fusion on a Mac.

Needs to work on a Mac – MBP.
All of the USB dongles should work with a Mac, but you will probably
need local knowledge to identify which networks have usable coverage
down there. They should all have maps that show network availability.
The T-Mobile PAYG lasts 90 days now apparently and the Three one
might do - but that may just be you have 90 days to use the voucher
and it then lasts for 30 days, which was the scenario. Both of them
should sell you a dongle for ~£40 if you shop around.
