Three’s new MIFI device now available

Mobile phone network Three is now selling their latest MIFI device, which is the first product of this nature to support the HSPA+ feature that is capable of download speeds of 21Mbps.

The Huawei E586 MIFI unit was launched early last month, as Three’s third such device that offers a mobile broadband connection to several devices over a secure WIFI signal – along with a self-contained power source.

This updated MIFI product is stated to be 40-percent faster than previous units, where independent test results by USwitch actually revealed that it is in fact up to 50 per cent faster and before taking HSPA+ into account.

Three has ramped up its upgrade programme for its high-speed 3G network to handle HSPA+ equipment, such as this MIFI and the Samsung Galaxy S II – where 80-percent of their network will be compatible with the new standard, by the end of the year.

Three‘s new OLED based MIFI device is available from £49.99 and on a range of contracts starting from £7.87 a month, with a free cradle charger. The E586 is also around on pay as you go deals, retailing for £84.99 with an inclusive 3GB data bundle.
