Wi-Fi hub, or just happy to see me?

The Power of One Infographic

O2 launched the Pay & Go Pocket Hotspot today, a portable Wi-Fi hub for those on the move.

The O2 Pocket Hotspot boasts 3G HSPA connectivity - 21.6Mb/s download, 5.76Mb/s upload - and supports up to five devices simultaneously.

Pay & Go Pocket Hotspot

While the firm turns up rather late to the shindig - Three and Vodafone have been raving it up for ages - it does so with competitive pricing and without the contract requirements most venders demand.

Those interested can snag the hardware for a penny shy of £60. From then on, it'll be either £2.04 a day for 200MB of data, or £10.21 and £15.32 for 1GB and 2GB respectively, both of which expire after 30 days. ®
