T-Mobile soon will start offering 3G services in many cities. At the same time, it will offer dongle 3G cards like other carriers offer here in The United States. What if you have more than on computer at home and you and your sis want to use the same card?… Seams, that T-Mobile (UK) is hoping to power your home network with the launch of a new wireless networking device powered by your mobile broadband dongle.
Called the Mobile Broadband Share Dock the device, which will come bundled with a standard T-Mobile mobile broadband dongle, will allow you to set up a wireless network anywhere you can find a power socket to share with colleagues or friends.
The dock is recommended for three users at a time and will give you full networking functions like sharing folders once you’ve gone through a quick setup wizard.
Unlike the dongle, you will need a power point to run the device and the bad news for non T-Mobile users is that it will be SIM locked for T-Mobile customers only.
Launching in the next couple of days, the Mobile Broadband Share Dock will cost £20 a month on an 18-month contract, however you will get the dongle in that price.
A T-Mobile spokesperson told Pocket-lint that current T-Mobile mobile broadband customers will be able to get it at varying prices (you need to phone the T-Mobile loyalty helpline) depending on their current contract.
