Freedom4 Launches Integrated 3G and WiFi Mobile Broadband Service

Freedom4 has launched a new service to enable customers to get the best possible broadband wireless connection whilst on the move. The combined 3G and WiFi software along with the plug-in dongle selects the highest quality connectivity at any given location to provide users with the ultimate flexible wireless service.

The new service, Mobile Broadband 1000, provides a range of value-added services including a WiFi hotspot locator from Satellite Navigation Systems, and a text service to find the nearest wireless access point to your current position.

The company has expanded its UK WiFi network with the addition of roaming partnerships with Spectrum Interactive plc and Briteyellow, taking the total number of hotspots in the UK to over 4,000 and to 50,000 globally. With the addition of the 3G data service, Freedom4now has the potential to provide wireless broadband to 99% of UK population.

Richard Cunliffe, Chief Operating Officer at Freedom4 WiFi comments, “Our customers want the fastest possible download speeds available in the UK whilst on the move. We are committed to providing a high quality service and our research has shown that the new combined package can provide speeds significantly faster than other mobile broadband products in the marketplace. Designed with the user in mind, this service will provide greater speeds, availability and functionality.”

Highlights of the recent Freedom4 tests include download speeds peaking at 17 Mbps, with average speeds reaching 2.8 Mbps. Over 600 connections were tested across the UK.

Pricing for the new service starts from £25 per month which includes dongle and any combination of either 1,000 Mb (1 Gb) of 3G or 1,000 WiFi minutes.
