Just £650 could pay for an instant wifi hotspot with a year’s data. A WiBE http://www.wiberouter.com costs around £350. Plug it in and you have an instant wifi hotspot that connects to the internet using a 3G signal. And a large number of devices can connect to it via wifi. For £25 a month you can get more data than most people will need. The advantage of using a WiBE is that the wifi hotspot has no connection at all with the organisation’s data network.
