3G card for Macs

Share

Good news for Mac owners. Vodafone has made its 3G data connect card available for Apple users.

According to the company the dashboard (or the interface of the card) is now compatible with Macs and Apple users will be able to surf the web remotely at speed of up to 384 kbps.

The company thinks that Mac users are an ideal target group for the 3G card. Bill Morrow, CEO Vodafone UK, said, “Users of Apple Macs have a rich variety of working habits that we believe are ideally suited to the 3G environment. From business people through to designers and photographers – all of these professional communities have sub-groups, characterized by heavy and frequent mobile data use, that are devoted to the Mac.”

Neither Orange or T-Mobile’s 3G cards are compatible with Macs.

Vodafone reckons that its 3G services are available to up to 50% of the UK population. When the card doesn’t find a 3G signal it automatically latches on to a GPRS one.
