A telecoms manufacturer has thrown down the gauntlet to its rivals by introducing a 4G dongle.

Motorola's USB modem, which is designed to provide super-fast mobile broadband speeds, could create new opportunities for businesspeople and consumers accessing the web on the move.

The firm showed off its new long-term evolution development at the 4G World 2010 conference in Illinois, US.

According to Motorola, the USB-lte 7110 dongle will allow users to take full advantage of HD content streaming, video blogging and video conferencing applications, raising the bar for mobile broadband.

However, writing for the Inquirer, commentator Edward Berridge suggested that the initial cost of such services may prove prohibitive to many potential users.

He suggested that upon receipt of their first broadband bill, 4G dongle users will be forced "to make their children get jobs" to pay their internet service provider.
