Vodafone is giving UK consumers the opportunity to take advantage of 4G dongle services.
When the firm's super-fast mobile broadband network launches on August 29th, users in connected areas will be able to benefit from a significant speed boost.
The broadband provider is offering the 4G-ready Vodafone K5006 USB modem on a variety of price plans, offering different amounts of data.
Consumers taking out a 12-month contract for their dongle can choose between a 4GB or 10GB mobile broadband deal.
Those seeking a 4G usage allowance pay £20 per month plus a one-off £29 purchase fee, while those on the 10GB tariff pay £30 per month but just £9 up-front to buy the dongle.
For users seeking extra flexibility, and access to mobile broadband without a long-term commitment, there is also the option of taking out a 30-day SIM-only plan.
Customers with their own 4G-ready dongle can get super-fast mobile broadband services from just £20 per month, for which they receive 4GB of data.
Those seeking 10GB of data pay £30 per month for the higher usage allowance.
But how do Vodafone's dongle deals compare to those available on EE's super-fast mobile broadband network?
Customers signing up for 4G services on a 24-month contract can pay £12.99 per month for 1GB of data, £15.99 per month for 3GB, £20.99 per month for 5GB or £25.99 for 8GB.
Subscribers receive a 4G-ready Alcatel One Touch L800 dongle for free as part of the two-year broadband package.
EE also offers a number of 30-day plans, which require the customer to pay £39.99 up-front for their USB modem device. 3GB of data is available for £15.99, 5GB of data for £20.99 and 8GB of data for £25.99.
