justice4all writes “A British company claims to have solved the problem of delivering a reliable broadband connection to people in rural communities. Deltenna has developed a small, self installable gadget called the WiBE (Wireless Broadband Enabler), which uses the 3G mobile network to create a 2Mbps web hotspot. The device sounds similar in concept to devices like Novatel’s MiFi — but Deltenna claims it works even in places where a 3G mobile phone wouldn’t register a signal. The WiBE has five times the range of a 3G dongle, and can deliver 30-times data throughput as well compared to a 3G USB modem dongle, Deltenna believes.”
