CHINESE PC MAKER Lenovo has announced UK pricing for its mobile broadband service that it announced earlier this week.

Lenovo sprang something of a surprise when it announced a Lenovo branded mobile broadband service via Macheen. The company's mobile service came with no contract, offering a pay as you go rate, however until now it seemed that the service was available only in the US.

According to Lenovo, the service will have four allotments, with pricing for 30 minutes and up to 40MB of data transfer being 69p with two 24 hour rates varying on bandwidth consumption. The firm said 250MB per day will cost £1.99 while 2GB will set customers back £13.99 and a monthly rate of £24.99 will allow for 7GB of data transfer.

Dilip Bhatia, VP and GM of Lenovo's Thinkpad business unit said, "We live in world where it's not only undesirable to be without online access, it's often disruptive to businesses. For that reason we wanted to create a flexible mobile broadband solution that would be unparalleled in its ability to help business users stay connected and working."

Lenovo said some Thinkpad models have the mobile broadband service included. It is now available to UK users. µ
