Vodafone has introduced a USB modem on a pay-as-you-go tariff, enabling users to stay connected with a laptop without having to sign up for a monthly contract.
The TopUP and Go modem follows the familiar format of a USB dongle that can be used to add mobile broadband to any PC with a free USB port. It also doubles as a USB Flash drive holding up to 4GB of files.
Vodafone said that the modem provides download speeds up to 3.6Mbit/s and costs £39, which includes the first 1GB of data traffic. Beyond this, each additional 1GB costs £15, which should be enough to provide around 30 hours of surfing.
The TopUp and Go modem is available in stores and online, and customers can top up using vouchers or by calling Vodafone on 08080 101238.
