3 Mobile Broadband Launch In Car Wi-Fi Kit
3 UK (three.co.uk) has announced the launch of an in car Wi-Fi kit that offers mobile broadband speeds up to 7.2Mbps in a car.
Launching at The Gadget Show in Birmingham, the In Car Wi-Fi modem connects with the company’s 3G network to create a personal Wi-Fi hotspot in the car.
Car passengers can then use Wi-Fi enabled devices like laptops, netbooks and the iPod Touch to connect to the Internet without the need for wires or a USB connection.
Commenting on the launch, the Head of Internet Services at 3 UK, David Kerrigan, said: “We’re always looking at new products and services that connect our customers in more places both at home and on the move and In Car Wi-Fi does this”.
Kerrigan continued: “Our research suggests that over 25% of the population are interested in having the internet in their cars, with families and travelling work colleagues showing the most interest. Mobile workers can check traffic information and email on route to a meeting and kids can social network or download tracks to an iPod Touch while on a road trip”.
3’s In Car Wi-Fi kit costs £59.99 and includes the Mi-Fi Huawei wireless modem, a mains charger, an in car charger, a windscreen holder and 1GB of data usage that lasts up to 30 days.
