Vodafone has launched a range of deals for consumers seeking access to 4G broadband services on a tablet.
The mobile broadband provider - which is set to activate its 4G network in London on August 29th 2013 - is offering internet packages with the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 (8 inch) and Sony Xperia Tablet Z.
Consumers seeking a Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 can pay £31 a month for 4GB of data, or £36 per month for a 10GB usage allowance.
The tablet offers a seven-inch screen size, 16GB of internal memory, and can be used to access mobile broadband and Wi-Fi services.
Those looking to take out a 4G deal with a Sony Xperia Tablet Z also have two options. Consumers spending £37 per month receive 4GB of data, while those who pay £42 per month have access to 10GB.
With this tablet, users can enjoy a 10.1-inch high definition display, and utilise a high-speed 1.5 GHz quad-core processor and 16GB of internal memory.
Vodafone customers who already have a tablet deal can simply upgrade to a 4G plan, allowing them to benefit from faster mobile broadband.
With the upcoming launch of its 4G tablet plans, Vodafone is moving into an area where EE is already active in the UK.
The firm launched its own 4G network in October 2012, and over the past nine months has been introducing super-fast mobile services in towns and cities across Britain.
EE offers 4G broadband deals on four tablet computers - the Sony Xperia Tablet Z, Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 LTE, the Apple iPad (with retina display) and the iPad mini.
On the Sony Xperia Tablet Z, EE offers three plans - with different data allowances to the Vodafone broadband deals.
The tablet is available with 3GB of data for £25.99 per month, plus a one-off £199 purchase fee, with 5GB of data for £30.99 per month (plus £149 up front), and 8GB of data for £35.99 (plus £29 up front).
EE customers are required to sign up for the Sony Xperia Tablet Z broadband deals on a 24-month contract.
