Mobile operator Three is set to offer the first mobile Wi-Fi device in the UK giving access to next generation 3G speeds of up to 21.1Mbps.
Three says its new MiFi “will allow customers to experience significant speed gains” compared to their existing device thanks to HSPA+ mobile broadband technology.
The new MiFi will be compatible with iPads, laptops and handheld games consoles while the inbuilt screen will allow users to see their Wi-Fi user name and password on screen at the touch of a button for fast pairing with new gadgets.

David Kerrigan, head of mobile broadband at Three commented: “As the UK’s biggest 3G mobile broadband network, we’re delighted to introduce our high speed mobile Wi-Fi product.
“This joins our award winning HSPA+ dongles making us the only operator offering an entirely next generation HSPA+ enabled range of mobile broadband products. Aside from this step up in speed, the new cradle charger, which looks great, will help people get the best performance in the home.”
