EE releases Buzzard 2 in-car 4G WiFi device


Customers able to connect to EE’s 4G network whilst travelling by car, who can now connect further devices to the product  

EE has released the Buzzard 2, a plug and play device that create’s an in-car 4G WiFi hotspot for drivers.

The product, the follow up to the first Buzzard from April, is available immediately from EE shops, telesales and its website.

It costs £79.99 on prepay and those buying it before January 31 will be eligible to receive 100MB of free data every month. It is also available on 4GEE mobile broadband contracts from £10 a month, and is free on plans from £15 (3GB) a month and above.

Designed for both consumer and business customers, the Buzzard 2 is plugged directly into the dashboard’s 12v connection without the need for an adaptor.

New additions include an additional USB socket to enable further devices to be connected to the power and charged during a journey, which EE says doesn’t affect the 4G WiFi performance, with a lighting system identifying when the device is switched on and connected.

It uses EE’s 4G network for connectivity, which now covers 75 per cent of the UK population, 263 major towns and cities and more than 2,500 villages and small towns.

EE director of prepay and connected products Christopher Traggio said: “High-speed internet connectivity has become second nature for many families – both inside the home and on the move.

“Buzzard 2 creates a powerful 4G WiFi connection without battery drain – providing a great solution for passengers young and old, so they can check their newsfeeds, stream music, play online games or catch-up on TV in the car.”
