Hi I am looking at buying a 2degrees usb modem
And I am about to switch to vodafone for broadband and getting their home complete wireless modem.
I heard that vodafone broadband complete modem takes 3g usb sticks.
And it supports One USB/HSPA port (for Vodafone Mobile Broadband Vodem* access).
The modem supports these vodems K3750 (E169), K3715, K3765h, K3565z and K3765z.
But have anyone tried a 2degrees 3g usb stick with it???

Reason for asking
I bought my parents another Linksys SPA 942 Ip phone, which is not wireless compatible.
And they are looking at ditching homeline and broadband, and use 2d mobile + 2d 3g data instead.
We live in Auckland, so a 1g data pack will do for them, since they only check emails and call overseas relatives occasionally.
So to use that SPA 942 Ip phone, there are a few choices available,
1. Get a 2d MIfi wireless modem + a linksys wireless G-bridge WBP54G, making SPA 942 wireless compatible.
2. I give them my vodafone complete home broadband modem + getting a 2degrees usb or vodafone vodem.

But since I will be using 2degrees data pack anyway, so I really dont want to go off and get a vodem.
So there is a compatibility issue with 2d usb stick & vodafone complete broadband unit.


MOBILE: Huawei P30
OTHER: Thinkpad E14 + Asus Vivobook + Intel NUC5i3 + A family of Raspberry Pi x 9 + Amazon Echo

The 2degrees stick is a Huawei E1552, so the Vodafone unit would need to support that model type.

you could also try putting a 2degrees sim in a vodafone deice. I know there can be some issues doing this when through a laptop due to the Vodafone Mobile Connect software, but i would assume the modem would just send AT commands to the device so it should just work by replacing the SIM.

Any posts are personal comments and not that of my employer

If you're using a Vodem set the dial-up number to *99#.
If you were looking for a mobile wireless modem we've reduced the cost of the E5 Huawei Pocket Wifi to $99 -
