Vodafone launches mobile Wi-Fi product
Vodafone has launched an own branded mobile Wi-Fi device which allows up to five people to connect to its network at the same time.
The mobile internet device is available for free on an 18 month contract at £25 per month, which includes 5GB of data.
The device, called the Vodafone Mobile Wi-Fi (R201), has a screen which displays battery life and information about the strength of signal available.
A Vodafone spokesperson said: ‘More and more devices are coming with Wi-Fi capability and there is a demand for consumers to connect on the move.’
3 also has a mobile Wi-Fi device on the market, ‘MiFi’, which was launched in September 2009. Novatel offers a similar device, called a ‘mobile hotspot’ through Carphone Warehouse which operates on Vodafone and T-Mobile.
