Telefonica-owned Mobile Service Provider, O2, has finally joined the wireless broadband revolution by offering a £20, 3GB offer HSDPA-enabled service.
Customers will also be able to access 7500 Wi-Fi hotspot locations in the UK over and above their data allowance; through its partnership with The Cloud network.
Those taking a normal 18-month contract with O2 will be provided the USB dongle for free while those looking for a much shorter, 1 month contract, will have to fork out £120 for the dongle.
Initial speeds will top 1.8mbps and will double to 3.6mbps while O2 extensive network upgrade ends in June; O2 says that the modem will automatically switch to the fastest available network seamlessly.
The competition is not staying put though; Vodafone already a 7.2mbps, 3GB wireless broadband offer for £15 and Three is also quite competitive.
