EE has just announced the Buzzard 2 which will allow owners to create an in-car Wi-Fi hotspot where they want with 4G connectivity.

The Buzzard 2 will be for both day-to-day users as well as business customers. It's primarily for the car with an ability to charge from the car's 12v power connector. This in turn has a USB port which means you can plug other devices into the Buzzard 2 so they get charged too, ideal if you're using phones or tablets.

The Buzzard 2 takes a microSIM, weighs just 50g and features Cat 4 4G connectivity.

The EE Buzzard 2 is £80 on pay as you go. If bought before 31 January owners will be eligible to get 100MB of free data to use each month. But for those wanting a little more there are pay monthly broadband contracts available from £10. If you stretch to a £15 per month contract the Buzzard 2 is free. Or if you're already an EE customer an £8 per month payment will allow it to be added to your 4GEE mobile Shared plan.

Christopher Traggio, director of PAYG & Connected Products, EE, said: "High-speed internet connectivity has become second nature for many families – both inside the home and on the move – so it can come as shock on car journeys when the children can’t access their favourite games or TV to entertain themselves."

RootMetrics tested the four UK networks and EE was faster and more reliable than all of them, with better data performance. Their network has come a long way since they launched in 2012. Back then they had 11 UK cities covered by 4G. Today they cover most of the UK’s land mass, thanks to 19,000 state-of-the-art 4G sites. They’ve got faster, too – from 50Mbps to a maximum speed of 400Mbps. And they’re soon to experience even greater possibilities with the launch of 5G.
