Mobile Broadband Wi-Fi Hub, now available on Three.
The new Mobile Broadband Wi-Fi hub allows people to turn their existing mobile broadband dongle into home Wi-Fi so they can connect all their Wi-Fi devices or share their connection with partners, friends or family.
The Wi-Fi hub allows up to five Wi-Fi devices to connect so if you have a tablet, handheld games console or smartphone as well as your laptop, or someone you want to share your connection with, it will bring a whole new range of possibilities to what your dongle can do for you.
Most USB dongles* are compatible with the Mobile Broadband Wi-Fi Hub, including Three’s premium dongle which offers speedy download rates of up to 5.9Mbps. The dongle’s HSPA+ capability means that speeds will increase to up to 21.1Mbps as Three continues its rollout of the advanced mobile internet technology.**
David Kerrigan, head of mobile broadband at Three said, “The Mobile Broadband Wi-Fi hub is another valuable internet solution from Three that will complement our great offering of dongles. Existing dongle owners will now find that they can share the benefits of their mobile internet connection with even more of their gadgets like tablets and games consoles, without any fuss.”
The Mobile Broadband Wi-Fi hub is available for £39.99 from Three Stores and three.co.uk. Dongles are sold separately, and available on a 1-month rolling contract from as little as £4.99 for Three’s standard dongle or £19.99 for the HSPA+ compatible Premium Dongle.
Key features include:
- Creates a Wi-Fi hotspot for up to five devices
- Supports dongle speeds up to 21 Mbps
- 88mm x 66mm x 25mm
- Available in black
