Turn your T-Mobile 3G dongle into wireless router….USA?

By: T-Marco October 2nd, 2008

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.

    Ok, this is cool. But, can someone translate this into English terms amount. Will that be $20 US or another price. Cause that would be cool using 3G as a wireless connection for $20 per month.

    OMG, that’s a lot of money. I think that’ll sound more reasonable when I actually have a job (college student), lol

    well, it is exactly 35.37 dollars…expensive?…. yes

    $35 is very affordable, and it has 10GB limit, better than ATT, VZW, Sprint have 5GB limit
    btw, the logo is T-Mobile USA logo (one dot on the left, 3 on the right of T, while other branches have two on both sides of T

    yes, you are right.. hope tmobile usa will bring this cool device here.. and yes, 35 is affordable, i was trying to support our readers.. but 35 is a reasonable price

    Affordable to whom?… you all?, yes, i’m guessing; to me, not exaclty. Now, when u look at the price itself, $35/month, that’s great, and even greater compared to other carriers pricing on that. Now, added to other people’s expenses, cell phone bill $110+/month, high speed internet $20/month, AT&T U-Verse TV $85/month, and etc… and u factor in this person does not have a job of his own, and the economy ain’t trying to improve to increase job availabilities, or increasing salaries, now that in fact makes that price shall I say….. EXPENSIVE!!! People i’m not made out of money, so, like I said for u all’s salaries…yes, the price alone not including other expenses people r paying…. yes, non expensive… to me, and adding all my expenses….expensive, not that much expensive, but, expensive nonetheless.
