Vodafone fends off home broadband with Wi-Fi Cube

Stocks Huawei Wi-Fi Cube 4G, which - spoiler - isn't a cube

Vodafone’s latest defence against home broadband is a “Wi-Fi Cube” capable of connecting 32 devices to its 4G network.

The telco announced today it will range Huawei's Wi-Fi Cube 4G, a modem that can generate wireless hotspots, on plans starting from $20 per month.

The move to range the modem follows research published by Telsyte, which claims the average household has “nearly eight devices capable of connecting to the Internet”.

Vodafone is hoping the plug-and-play setup of the Cube 4G, along with data plans of up to 25GB, will make it an attractive proposition against home broadband alternatives.

The Huawei modem can “connect up to 32 devices at any one time” and has a “Wi-Fi range of up to 200 metres”.

Customers will have the option of buying the Cube 4G on 12 or 24 month contracts. Alternatively, they can sign up to a month-to-month contract if they purchase the Huawei modem outright for $159.

The “Cube 4G” branding is a misnomer as the modem is in the shape of a rectangular prism.

Huawei's Wi-Fi Cube 4G is available from Vodafone stores today. Featured below is pricing from Vodafone’s official press release.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
