O2 to offer new USB dongle


by David Allen

The mobile broadband provider will be introducing a new USB dongle, the Sierra Wireless Compass 885 USB modem, to the mobile broadband network.

This dongle has been specifically designed to be used by laptop users, travellers and mobile professionals who need to be connected to the internet whatever the time and wherever they are located, although this is restricted to the extent of the O2 network itself.

The dongle has been designed to be stronger but smaller than the previous one, but is capable of achieving download speeds of 7.2 Mbps and an upload speed of 2 Mbps.

Made for both Macs and Windows based computers, the dongle is expected to have a microSD slot and support quad band GSM/EDGE and tri band HSPA/UMTS.
