Telecommunications provider, Vodafone, has launched two new mobile broadband devices which will be compatible with its20MHz 4G network in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth and Adelaide.
The Vodafone Mobile Broadband USB and Vodafone Pocket Wi-Fi are Category 4-enabled, indicating a theoretical maximum speed of 150 megabits per second (Mbps), equating 18.75 megabytes per second (MBps). The Pocket Wi-Fi can serve as a portable hot spot servicing up to 10 devices at a time.
The pricing for the devices is set as follows:
Vodafone is offering a 15 per cent discount for customers who purchase a 4G Mobile Broadband USB Stick or Pocket Wi-Fi device on an existing postpaid account. The offer runs until April 2, 2014.
Neither device is available on prepaid plans.
According to Vodafone devices general manager, Katie Turkal, the telco has released the products to meet strong demand for mobile broadband products particularly from customers who do not want a permanent, fixed-broadband connection, as well as students.
Vodafone first switched on its 4G network in June 2013.
