Mobile surfing safe: With the surf stick of FONICWritten by: Christian Koch
[ Trigami ad ] Whoever wants to go to the Internet with your notebook, which you should try out the new offer for Fonic's Surf Stick with protection costs.
FONIC has expanded its product range to the Fonic surf stick. For new customers, there is a sexy starter package called "FONIC surf stick starter pack including one days surfing." This includes surf stick, FONIC SIM card installation and access software (for Windows and MacOS) and a Quick Start Guide. So you get mobile access to the Internet for 2.50 € per day (so-called day flat rate) for the first 10 calendar days. All subsequent calendar days are free.
The stick is compatible with Windows XP, Windows 2000, Windows Vista and Mac from OS 10.4. The stick supports up to up to 3.6 Mbit / s and automatically selects the fastest available in a network (HSDPA, UMTS, EDGE and GPRS). There is no volume limit, only a restriction on GPRS speeds, so far it has exceeded over 500MB or 5GB per usage day on the relevant calendar month. Oh, and stick to the surf you can even connect an external antenna (which is, however, not included). This can improve the connection, you should be in an area with weak network coverage.
I would not go into here, but the hardware, because I'm no expert (and I do not think that there are significant differences in terms of sticks). So here's a few facts that focus purely on the benefit and cost benefit limit and make the offer of Fonic be interesting for one or the other.
No contract, no monthly fee, no minimum:
When Fonic Surf-Stick is a prepaid offer no monthly fee or minimum sales. So you pay only if you also use the offer!
The cost of protection:
As with other mobile operators means costs Airbag, when Fonic surf stick is called the cost of protection. Cost of protection is simply the automatic limitation of costs to a maximum of 25 euros per month.
Since you pay for the surf stick 2,50 € per day for mobile internet, this means mathematically (25 € / 2,50 EURO per day = 10 days), the cost per day from 11 Day are accordingly cheaper. This is probably the most important unique feature of USB modems.
For whom is the Fonic surf stick is especially:
Everyone knows it: The choice of provider is tedious and you have to compare each offer their own needs always. Therefore, attached three typical types of users, including calculation examples, each of which recognizes fast, for what type of use the Fonic offer goes particularly well:
Example 1: Marianne has the Fonic surf stick. This month, however, she was with her fresh spouse Hans-Peter on their honeymoon in the Bavarian Forest and was not a single day on the internet. Since no basic fees incurred Marianne also have to pay any single cent.
Example 2: Hans-Peter (the newly married) has succeeded despite Honeymoon to separate themselves from time to time by Marianne and sat down to a total of 7 days with his notebook in the park Hanspeter pays only (7 x 2.50 EUR) 17.50 €.
Example 3: Karl-Heinz is often on the road and almost daily attacks on his mobile to emails and surfing the internet. He comes in the month on all 20 days of use. Karl-Heinz without the cost of protection would have to shell out as much as 50 euros. But thanks to the protection Fonic costs he has to pay only 25 euros. Karl-Heinz now expects around 25 euros to 20 days, he looks pleased that every day surfing it has even cost only 1.25 euros.
It can be seen: Either way, the costs remain moderate. Who more than 10 days uses the mobile Internet, it is converted for the day even more favorable.
