Getting 4G is one thing, but turning that ultra-fast 4G speed into a WiFi hotspot is another. Today EE have revealed a number of options for getting yourself a mobile WiFi cloud to hop onto.
The first is something called “Buzzard”. It’s a little widget that basically plugs into your cigaretter lighter in the car. This will create a personal 4G WiFi hotspot which will allow up to 10 devices to connect. There’s a container which will sit nicely in your cup holder as you can see below. It’ll keep your family and other passengers entertained as the iPads, tablets and other electronic devices connect to the internet easily.
The cost? Just £10 per month plus a £19 up-front charge. It’s £49.99 on PAYG.
Secondly is the “Kite”, below. This is basically a MiFi unit which you can pop into your pocket, wallet or purse and beams out a WiFi hotspot whereever you are. This one is £10 per month plus £29 up-front or you can pay £69.99 on PAYG plans.
If none of those suit your needs then the third bird-related product could be more your thing. The “Osprey” is a rugged and colourul unit aimed at students and is £10 per month plus £19 up-front or £49.99 on PAYG plans.
As for those data plans, £10 per month (on a 24 month plan) will get you a 1GB allowance, whilst £15 will get you 3GB. If you prefer a 1 month rolling plan then the prices are the same, plus you can pay even more and get more data and double-speed 4G. Expect to pay £20 for 15GB, £30 for 25GB and £50 per month for 50GB.
