A new Netgear mobile hotspot is to be brought to market, under the brand name AT&T Unite Express for GoPhone.
The Netgear AirCard 779S Mobile Hotspot is the firm's latest addition to its line of products which offer prepaid internet access on the go using AT&T’s 4G long-term evolution network.
Consumers can access secure, reliable, affordable Wi-Fi when they need it, on their own terms, with three flexible rate plans to choose from.
The AT&T Unite Express, which is roughly the same size of a deck of cards, allows password-protected internet access for up to ten Wi-Fi-enabled devices.
It offers up to ten hours of battery life on a single charge, a colour LCD screen to monitor battery life and network connections, and an optional Spanish language interface.
“Our newest mobile hotspot is an easy-to-use device that our customers can simply turn on and connect, without adjusting settings,” said Judy Cavalieri, vice-president, AT&T voice and prepaid products.
"Netgear has designed our AT&T Unite Express with the intuitive setup and the outstanding experience that meets our high standards for quality."
Jim Kirkpatrick, senior vice-president, LTE products at Netgear, said his company is"very pleased" that AT&T has teamed up with it to expand its portfolio of mobile broadband products.
"We’re confident that mums, dads, students, travellers and small business owners will be delighted by how easily they can set up the AT&T Unite Express to share their 4G LTE connection with friends, family and co-workers," he stated.
Mr Kirkpatrick claimed that, as a result of the new solution, mobile Wi-Fi has never been easier to use.
