3G modem for Mac

Vodafone UK has released the Vodafone Mobile Connect USB Modem in the UK, which originally debuted in Australia early last month. The new modem is based on 3G technology capable of establishing 1.4Mbps connection speeds on UK networks. The model features USB connectivity instead of the traditional PCMCIA/PC card connectivity used in many modems today. Featuring full Mac compatibility, the modem fixes the problem which arose when Apple released its MacBooks without expansion slots, as well as the MacBook Pros with advanced ExpressCard technology which is still gaining market speed. Vodafone UK expects a 1GB monthly transfer limit with upload speeds of 384Kbps in the near future, and currently offers 3G coverage of all major areas. The company plans to cover 75 percent of the UK population by next summer.
