Mobile broadband is fast becoming this year’s must–have accessory. And not one to be outdone, O2 has announced they’re weighing in with their own little dongle.

The USB modem will hit you for £20 a month, as long as you're already on O2. Those not on O2 could pay £30 for the service. If you sign on the dotted line for an 18-month deal, the modem’s free. However, if you fancy going on a month–by–month basis, you’ll have to shell out £119.99 for the privilege of owning the modem. Ouch!

You’ll get 3GB of data for your wonga, with an excess charge of 20p per MB if you get a bit download happy. Speed–wise, you’re looking at 1.8Mbps, rising to 3.6Mbps in June.

What do you think? Is this too much to be laying out for broadband on the move? Or will you be signing up as soon as you can?
