Vodafone today launched a new slim version of its USB modem stick.
Vodafone claims its latest USB modem, which is compatible with Windows Vista and XP and Mac OSX, is its ‘smallest and slimmest yet’.
The modem is compatible with Vodafone’s recently upgraded mobile broadband network, which now supports download speeds of up to 7.2Mbps for receiving files and 1.44Mbps for sending files. The upgraded 7.2 network is currently available in some parts of central London and ten major airports.
Vodafone UK enterprise director Kyle Whitehill said: ‘Our customers are seeing real benefits from the ease of use offered by our USB plug and go device, coupled with our increased network speeds. As a result, they have increased their usage six-fold as they use the service to work more productively or surf the internet.’
The USB modem is available with a £25 mobile broadband flat rate tariff, and prices for the device itself start from £49 with an 18-month contract. Mobile broadband customers signing up to a 24-month contract will receive three months usage free of charge.
