A leading internet service provider is set to offer its customers a new mobile broadband device that creates a web-based cloud that can be shared between multiple users.
Novatel Wireless has agreed a deal with the Carphone Warehouse which will see the former's Intelligent Mobile Hotspot 2352 made available to customers across the UK via T-Mobile.
Up to five Wi-Fi enabled devices can share connections through the platform, including laptops, gaming consoles and portable media players.
Andrew Harrison, the UK Chief Executive Officer for the Carphone Warehouse, said customers are likely to "embrace the flexibility" of the system.
"With freedom from hotspots, users can leverage the device to access email, check their social networks and download files from anywhere there is a mobile connection, including moving trains or vehicles," he added.
Rival broadband provider Vodafone recently confirmed it is also now offering a similar mobile broadband hotspot device in parts of Europe, while 3 has also launched its Mi-Fi system in the UK recently.
