Wireless world: average home now has eight connected devices

New Vodafone 4G WiFi Cube can connect the whole household

Vodafone today announced the launch of the Huawei WiFi Cube 4G; a mobile broadband (MBB) device that delivers fast 4G speeds in selected metro areas, and connect up to 32 devices at any one time.

Offering a convenient alternative to fixed broadband internet, the Huawei WiFi Cube 4G is purpose built for the modern Australian home and delivers reliable and fast 4G speeds with a WiFi range of up to 200 metres.

Available in store and online from today, the Huawei WiFi Cube 4G takes advantage of Vodafone’s 4G network, which now covers 95% of Australia’s metropolitan population.

Recent Telsyte research revealed that the average Australian home now has nearly eight devices capable of connecting to the internet. Vodafone’s Director of Sales, Ben McIntosh, said the Cube is an ideal solution for any household with multiple devices.

“These days people might have a smartphone, a tablet, a laptop, a gaming console plus other devices that they want to connect to the internet at the same time, and this makes the Huawei WiFi Cube a great option,” said Mr McIntosh.

Another strength of the Huawei WiFi Cube is how easily it can be set up. Customers don’t require a phone line and there are no initial setup fees like those associated with fixed line broadband.

“We know that customers don’t want the hassles involved in getting fixed-line broadband such as setup costs and delays”, said Mr McIntosh. The Huawei WiFi Cube offers plug and play connectivity, meaning there’s no waiting around for the ISP to get you up and running. All you need to do is simply plug the device in and you’ll be online in a matter of minutes.

The Huawei WiFi Cube is available on a range of month to month, 12 and 24 month contracts starting at just $25 per month for 2.5GB of data (equals $0.0078 /MB), with up to 25GB of data available for $90 (equals $0.0035 /MB). The device can also be bought outright for $159.
