Vodafone has refreshed its mobile broadband deals with a new dongle contract option offering on the go browsing at speeds of up to 7.2Mb from £15 per month and the addition of new laptops.
As of today, the broadband provider is offering a dongle with 3GB of mobile broadband usage per month – enough for around 100 hours of web surfing - for a charge of £15 over a 12-month contract.
The dongle doubles a mass storage USB stick, with buyers able to boost its storage capacity by up to 8GB by adding a microSD card.
Vodafone has also added the highly rated Dell Mini 10, which usually retails for £299, to its mobile broadband laptop product range. Available for £25 per month with a monthly download limit of 3GB or at £21.27 for 1GB, and a headline download speed of up to 7.2Mb.
Dell’s laptop has mobile broadband embedded, eliminating the need to use a dongle to get online. Weighting in at 1.33kg, the Mini 10 is also home to a 10.1-inch widescreen and an expansive keyboard. Storage capacity is 160Gb, while the onboard 1.33Ghz Intel Atom Z520 processor is installed to facilitate multi-tasking.
Finally this week sees the arrival of the Samsung N130 on Vodafone broadband laptop bundles for consumers, having previously been on offer solely on business mobile broadband contract plans.
Under the terms of the new N130 offer, consumers can opt for 1GB of usage for £21.27 per month or 3GB for £25. An unlimited usage option is £30 per month. All three feature a maximum broadband connection speed of 7.2Mb.
As with the Mini 10, the N130 is embedded with mobile broadband for maximum convenience. Widely regarded as one of the most striking laptops around, its standout features include a 10.6-inch display, a 1.6GHz Intel Atom N270 processor.
News of Vodafone’s revamped product portfolio comes after its mobile broadband services were recently named the best in the UK for browsing on the go in a study conducted by analysis company Siroda.
