Vodafone wireless router

In January Vodafone enterprise are to release a wireless router for their mobile broadband modems. This will mean that multiple users will be able to use one modem to access the internet. I’m not entirely sure what consequences this will have for internet speeds, they will certainly slow, the question is how much. It also means that the usage allowance will get used up much more quickly. Added to that it could well make it difficult to keep a check on how near the usage limits you are (as it will possibly tell you the readings for each individual computer using the wireless router rather than total usage). Unfortunately this is all conjecture at the moment, but points well worth making all the same.

 Other than the description available on the website, the most I can get about the router is that, “The B970 (the name of the router) is an HSDPA 7.2Mbps and HSUPA 2.1Mbps wireless gateway which supports GSM850/900/1800/1900 networks, providing telephony services and multiple user experiences through WiFi connectivity.”  For those not sure on what the terms are referring to, HSDPA refers to download speeds, while HSUPA refers to upload speeds. Well essentially anyway. I would apologise for the wikipedia links, but I’m not going to, it does the job well.


Another point worth mentioning is that since the device is through Vodafone enterprise, it would probably have to be special requested by a store in order to get it in stock.
