Vodafone (VOD) increases connectivity with first MiFi 5G device


Limited company of the Vodafone group VOD recently announced the launch of its very first 5G broadband mobile device, the 5G MiFi. This innovative offer has been specially designed to meet the connectivity needs of customers “on the go”.

The touchscreen device is ideal for supporting small business connectivity and it can also be used at home. It comes equipped with a simple web interface and boasts an exceptional 8.5 hour battery life that allows customers to seamlessly share Wi-Fi with up to 32 users or devices, through hassle-free setup.

This portable device is a godsend, especially at a time when organizations still depend on the work-from-home model in the pandemic scenario. In sync with this, the router facilitates connectivity for remote businesses while allowing consumers to stream and download at higher speeds over the back of a robust internet connection.

With the resilience of Wi-Fi 6, this Vodafone 5G mobile hotspot offers direct access to the ultra-fast 5G mobile network with the ability to download movies or albums in seconds, thanks to its lower latency and its larger capacity. In addition, customers can benefit from high speed internet even in areas without fixed line connectivity.

Vodafone UK offers flexible data plans where customers can choose a fixed term or scalable contract with prices starting at just £ 10 per month. For a 24-month Vodafone Unlimited contract, customers will get the first six months at half price. For a 12 month unlimited contract customers have to pay £ 33 / month plus £ 150 upfront charge and, in the case of a 30 day contract, £ 37 / month plus £ 200 upfront charge.

A few days ago, Vodafone UK took an important step by connecting more than 125,000 people living in digital poverty. This achievement underscores Vodafone’s commitment to connect 1 million UK-based people, thereby eliminating the digital disparity by 2022.

Vodafone is also conducting trials for self-powered, eco-friendly mobile phone towers to reduce harmful emissions and achieve the UK net zero goal by 2027. With a diverse and open ecosystem , Vodafone aims to develop an efficient and customer-focused network using components from different vendors who adhere to a common set of standards.

This will likely allow the operator to release new features simultaneously to multiple sites while increasing capacity and resolving outages more quickly. Vodafone has committed to halving its supply chain emissions by 2030 in 21 countries before reaching net zero across its entire value chain by 2040.
