is being priced to compete specifically with Vodafone’s equivalent. Both offer 1.8Mbps data rates on the respective network’s HSDPA connection, but on comparable 12-month price plans with unlimited usage the T-Mobile USB modem costs £29.99 to purchase plus £29 per month — Vodafone’s USB modem costs £49 to buy, plus a monthly fee of £52.86 on the Data Unlimited price plan.
