    When she says 'no phone' does she mean a landline or no mobile signal?
    Those dongles work well but you will need a mobile signal & they're not great if it's a bit weak.
    Don't use it to Skype or watch video as that will eat up the allowance really fast too

    Depends where it is, does it have other houses near by? In our hamlet when our neighbours come over for their holidays they use our connection no problem, also nearly all the cafes have WiFi these days or at least in those around here which you can use. Failing that a dongle is a good option but only if you can get a signal. Like most say 3 is the UK carrier giving the cheapest service but they are all catching up quickly.
