The mobile network EE  will be the first to sell a new gadget called ‘Buzzard’ offering superfast WiFi to up to ten devices in a car.

Powered by the company’s 4G mobile network, the ‘Buzzard’ is designed to fit in a cup holder and plugs into a cigarette lighter, turning the vehicle into a personal mobile hotspot for internet access.

EE’s CMO Pippa Dunn said: “We’re trying to open up the car as a place where you can experience connectivity, principally for parents with children who are currently squabbling over an iPad and watching a video on the back seat.

Announced with three other new devices, including a 4G Android tablet and two mobile broadband devices, the new products came as EE, the UK’s largest 4G network, announced it has completed the second phase of building its new network, claiming more than 3million people in 2,588 villages and small towns can now access faster data services via phones and mobile broadband.
