Life without broadband isn’t a lot of fun. All that waiting around to log on and then the hours spent waiting for music to download – not nice
Nevertheless Socket is hoping to come to the rescue of those lumbered with 56k dial-up modem connections who fancy surfing the net wirelessly.
It is offering a £99 cordless 56k modem connects a computer to the internet using Bluetooth. Users plug the modem into a standard phone line and then go online via a Bluetooth-enabled PC up to 100 feet away. It is powered by a rechargeable Lithium ion battery.
The modem, which also works with Palm and microsoft-based PDAs, is accompanied by utilities connection set-up software, which apparently makes it easy to program the modem when travelling abroad.
