Thuraya Telecommunications Company launch the Thuraya XT-Hotspot – the only plug and play Wi-Fi router on the market.
The device enables easy and affordable internet access with the fastest satellite data speeds on a handheld of up to 60 kbps in the most remote of areas.
The XT-Hotspot is a pocket-size router which creates a Wi-Fi zone for multiple users to connect smartphones, laptops, and tablets to the internet over Thuraya’s mobile satellite network.
It uses the GmPRS connection of the Thuraya XT handset, which supports faster connection speeds of up to 60 kbps, as opposed to 9.6 kbps currently offered on the market. The router creates a Wi-Fi zone of up to 30 meters, where multiple users can simultaneously access the internet seamlessly from their laptops or smartphones. It is a compact battery-powered device ideal for users from diverse sectors including NGOs, Government, Energy and Media.
