This is the smallest modem we’ve ever reviewed. It’s 
half the size of a normal mouse and you can easily 
carry it in your pocket. Being USB enabled, it’s plug-n-play ready and thus easy to set up and install. Plug the modem into a free USB port and it gets recognized instantly. Feed your computer the accompanying driver diskette, and you’re ready to go. The other neat feature is that it doesn’t need an extra power supply. This makes it highly portable, and useful for people on the move. The modem is based on the V.90 protocol enabling connections of up to 56 kbps.

This USB modem is fairly easy to install and doesn’t require an xternal power supply We tested the multimobile with connections from various ISPs such as VSNL, MantraOnline and Net4India. It took only 6 to 8 seconds to establish a connect.

We also got very stable connectivity for long hours with the modem. Download speeds ranged between 1.8 to 2.3 kbps, which is very good. But it heats up when used continuously for a long time.

The modem can store telephone numbers, up to 40 characters in its nonvolatile memory. The accompanying CD contains tons of free data and fax software, such as Internet Telephone, Adobe Acrobat Reader, and even McAfee anti-virus software. 
The Multi mobile USB has a unique design and comes with a warranty of two years. However, it’s expensive and more suitable for those on the move.
