Vodafone USB 7.2 Modem Stick

Vodafone USB Modem StickVodafone UK just launched a USB modem for their high-speed mobile broadband data network. The Vodafone USB Modem Stick is Vodafone's smallest wireless high-speed modem supporting HSDPA and HSUPA. It reminds me of the Sprint Novatel Wireless Ovation U727 USB stick, which I plan on writing the review today. Stay tuned!

In any event, the Vodafone USB Modem Stick plugs directly into a laptop and supports both Windows (Vista and XP) and Mac OSX. The modem is compatible with Vodafone UK’s recently upgraded mobile broadband network, now supporting download speeds of up to 7.2Mbps (for receiving files) and 1.44Mbps uplink (for sending files). The speeds available are respectively fourteen and twenty-two times faster than the original 3G service launched in 2004.

The "‘Stick" is available on the £25 Mobile Broadband flat rate and prices for the device itself start from just £49 with an 18 month contract. Mobile Broadband customers signing up to a 24 month contract will receive three months free of charge.

The upgraded 7.2 network is currently available in parts of central London and major airports.
