High Speed Mobile Data

I am now a beta tester for Vodafone’s new high speed mobile data cards. I have to say so far so good.

The old data card had a maximum download speed of around 350 kb/s. These can go around 20 times as fast, and I routinely get over 2 Mb/s down and around 1 Mb/s up.

Giving up the DSL connection one day is not an impossibility.

Installing the new card was pretty simple. Step 1 is insert CD and install latest software. Step 2 is transfer sim card, and you are done.

While I am a big advocate for fibre to the home, mobile broadband is just as important – both for rural areas, but also for those like me who travel around. It really is so good being able to connect up, in most places in NZ.
