Yes it has 1GB but you have a month to use it. The speeds I got it would take a year to use that much.

With apologies, the Vodafone K4201 Pay As You Go Mobile Broadband Dongle is locked to Vodafone UK and cannot therefore be used in Spain, even with a Spanish SIM.

Hi Lucy,

Thanks for using Argos Q&A.

I can confirm that the Vodafone K4201 Pay As You Go Mobile Broadband Dongle is designed for use with laptops. As the connection for the dongle is a full sized USB connection it is unlikely to fit. We recommend you check the connectivity capability of your tablet.

Regards,

Hi,

I can't find anything to indicate that the dongle is not suitable for 32 bit systems. It could be something to do with the USB ports or relevant drivers. If its not suitable for your needs please contact customer services who will be happy to help.
