Huawei E160 USB Modem (Data only)
The Huawei E160 USB modem is a data only GSM device that lets you connect to the internet via your SIM card using a laptop or desktop computer. If you are traveling and want to make use of the benefits of prepaid mobile data, Ekit and the Huawei E160 USB data modem is your answer.
The only problem that we found so far is that how to install the SIM card in the modem was a bit of a mystery so we have included some information in out Travel tips section of the BLOG or you can jump right to the document here.
