About Vodafone Mobile Broadband
Vodaphone have won awards for the quality of their mobile broadband service and this is obviously why their packages seem a little more expensive than the rest of the field at first. Monthly subscription prices are a little costlier than some of the other 3G providers but we are not speaking about a large difference. In some cases Vodaphone are actually cheaper. One of the major benefits of some Vodaphone mobile broadband packages is the fact that they are giving away the excellent Dell Mini netbook as a promotional gift. This is a top of the range netbook, quite an incredible sign up gift worth around £300.
Vodaphone also offer a PAYG type service which they have named "Pay and Go?. The user purchases a USB modem from Vodaphone and then tops up with 1Gb chunks of data transfer. Although this is not the cheapest PAYG 3G service available it is extremely easy to administer, just buy 1 Gb, when it runs out buy another 1 Gb, nothing confusing just a straightforward data plan.
One of the major benefits of signing up with Vodaphone is the coverage area. Currently Vodaphone offer two speeds of HSPDA connection. In major areas where they have upgraded their network users of Vodaphone mobile broadband will achieve download rates of up to 7.2 Mb. In areas still awaiting an upgrade users will only receive a download rate of 1.8 Mb. The good news is that Vodaphone?s 1.8 Mb speed coverage is wide, possibly the largest 3G network in the UK, meaning you are far more likely to have access to the internet via Vodaphone in more remote locations than with any other 3G provider.
The good news is that Vodaphone are continually updating their network and are aiming to get every part of the UK on to the 7.2 Mb connection speed as soon as possible. This makes Vodaphone a safe bet for mobile broadband users who are seeking the most portable mobile broadband as it is likely that Vodaphone will continue to lead the field with regards to overall area of the UK covered.
Overall, Vodaphone are an exceptional mobile broadband and 3G service provider. They have led the telecoms industry in the UK in terms of quality for several decades and continue to be a world class telecoms company in every respect.
