EE has launched the Buzzard 2, its latest super-fast 4G WiFi in-car device, designed to bring high-speed connectivity to help facilitate in car entertainment, productivity and navigation without the need for expensive in-built solutions.
Building on the design features of the UK’s first 4G car WiFi device, Buzzard 2 is able to be plugged directly in to the car dashboard’s 12v connection without the need for an adaptor so it never runs out of power. An additional USB socket also allows further devices to be connected to the power and charged during the journey, without affecting the 4G WiFi performance. Finally, an intuitive lighting system also makes it simple to identify when the device is switched on and connected.
Available to businesses and consumers from EE shops, EE telesales and the EE web site immediately, Buzzard 2 is just £79.99 on pay as you go, with those purchasing the device before 31st January eligible to receive 100MB of free data to use each and every month. Buzzard 2 is also available on a range of 4GEE pay monthly mobile broadband plans starting from £10, and is free on plans from £15 (3GB) per month and above. Alternatively, for just £8 per month, it can be added for free to a customer’s 4GEE mobile Shared plan.
“High-speed internet connectivity has become second nature for many families – both inside the home and on the move – so it can come as shock on car journeys when the children can’t access their favourite games or TV to entertain themselves.” – Christopher Traggio, Director of PAYG & Connected Products, EE
Buzzard 2 creates a powerful 4G WiFi connection without battery drain – providing a great solution for passengers young and old, so they can check their newsfeeds, stream music, play online games or catch-up on TV in the car.
Business users will be able get online before or after meetings from the car park, or provide in-car connectivity for their passengers – for example taxis and limousine companies can keep their customers connected whilst on the move.
