Uros, the provider of Goodspeed mobile Wi-Fi, today announces the launch of its global 4G mobile hotspot that uses the Goodspeed mobile internet service for fast and affordable international data roaming. The Goodspeed 4G mobile hotspot MF900 has been developed in cooperation with ZTE Mobile Device, a leading global mobile device maker. The device will be manufactured under a technology licence from Uros.
Uros introduces the Goodspeed 4G mobile hotspot with excellent performance and sleek design.
The Goodspeed 4G mobile hotspot MF900 supports all global cellular technologies; LTE FDD, LTE TDD, UMTS, EDGE and GSM, over a global set of bands. It can reach maximum downlink speed of 150 Mbps and uplink speed of 50 Mbps. The new MF900 mobile hotspot features a sizeable 3200mAh battery that allows for approximately 12 hours of continuous use, or 7 days in standby mode. The device is the world’s first commercially available 4G hotspot that can accommodate and switch automatically between ten SIM cards, making it effortless to cross borders. The private WLAN connection can be shared with up to 15 Wi-Fi-enabled devices simultaneously.
Tommi Uhari, CEO of Uros, comments: “We were proud to partner with ZTE in developing the Goodspeed 4G mobile hotspot because of ZTE’s strong track record in technology innovation and impressive experience in developing wireless devices. With this project carried out successfully together and now ready to be launched in record time, I’m confident that this opens doors for deepening and widening our partnership even further.”
Adam Zeng, CEO of ZTE Mobile Device, adds: “We are excited to join forces with Uros to unveil this brand new roaming solution, which we believe busy international travelers will find incredibly handy. The manufacturing of the Goodspeed 4G mobile hotspot MF900 is already underway and we expect to see strong shipments for this product.”
The new 4G device will be available for purchase in July from Goodspeed direct sales channels, including Business Sales and official Goodspeed distributors, before general availability from goodspeed.io. The Goodspeed service in 4G networks will be available immediately along with the device in selected destinations. The 4G service will be accessible with same transparent pricing and plans as the current 3G service, eradicating the fear of bill shock also when using a faster connection.
