3 NetConnect Card

3 NetConnect Card

Hutchison 3 has launched a broadband-speed wireless data card. The NetConnect Card works when it is inserted into the PCMCIA card slot and can deliver a maximum speed of 384Kbps download and 64kKbps upload in 3’s Video Zones — roughly six times faster than remote access dial-up and nine times faster than typical GPRS mobile data. It can work in both 3G and GPRS modes so users can roam from the 3 network to GPRS within Australia. The device is targeting business users, with 3 claiming it is compatible with most virtual private networks and business software applications. 3 is using Ingram Micro, eXeed, and Harris Technologies to distribute the cards.

RRP: $588 or $49 a month for 12 months, plus a $50 connection fee.
