Seasonal MiFi in White– coming soon to Three.
Now that geek is chic, handbags and manbags are set to overflow with tablets, laptops, e-readers and gaming gadgets. To keep them online all the time, Three’s award winning MiFi offers a portable Wi-Fi hotspot which lets up to five Wi-Fi enabled devices connect securely to the internet at once, without the fuss of cables and wires. Smaller than most phones, the MiFi can slip easily into a bag or pocket and be on hand to connect you to the internet at the touch of a button.
The new MiFi hasn’t just had a winter white makeover, it also now features next generation HSPA+ mobile broadband technology, meaning that you can download videos, browse pictures, tweet and surf the web around 50%* faster than before.
The MiFi screen displays key information like the amount of data used, speed of the connection and length of browsing time, as well as a new look dashboard for viewing SMS and changing settings. In addition, the Wi-Fi user name and password can be seen on screen for fast pairing with new gadgets.
David Kerrigan, head of mobile broadband at Three commented: “We’re delighted to be able to offer our customers a seasonal twist on our great new MiFi. With groundbreaking technology inside, users can also enjoy the full benefit of Three’s award winning mobile broadband network.**”
The new MiFi in white, built by Huawei, will be available in store and online in the coming weeks.
