Vodafone UK has launched GigaCube – a new mobile router for consumers and businesses. Customers can now benefit from high-speed internet access in areas without fixed line connectivity. This latest offering by Vodafone allows instant plug and play 4G connectivity, with a single 13 amp plug.
With speeds reaching up to 300MBPs, customers are able to create fast and reliable Wi-Fi quickly. GigaCube is ideal for those waiting for their home or business broadband, who need a connection for a second home or who have a home office. The router can connect up to 20 devices at any one time, allowing large families and small businesses to stream and download at speed.
The GigaCube is particularly useful for small businesses who move around a lot or don’t have a fixed location but need instant internet access – for example, a market trader or a food shop at a festival. The demand for fast internet access is particularly high amongst market stall owners – many of whom need a reliable internet connection and don’t have access to a fixed broadband line. Such stalls contribute £2.3bn per annum to the UK economy.
Customers can choose either a fixed term or rolling contract, and the option of data capping means customers can stay in control of their plans. Pricing for consumers and business customers (under 10 employees):
