Vodafone's 3G data cards, providing access to company intranets, email and office applications, went on sale at the weekend in 64 Vodafone stores.
The operator claims that its Mobile Connect 3G/GPRS data card, which can roam in five markets, offers a speed seven times that of dial-up, at 384Kbps.
The card operates between Vodafone UK's 3G and GPRS services. When users are outside the range of 3G coverage, the service automatically switches to the UK GPRS network.
An internet access version of the service provides individual and small business users with mobile access to public internet-based services such as HTML browsing and Pop3 email accounts.
Both versions are available from Vodafone retail stores and business channels, with a recommended price ranging from £50 to £180 depending on tariffs.
