Three UK has launched it's first HSPA+ mobile broadband USB dongle,made by Huawei,offering potential data speeds of upto 21.6Mbs as it's 3G network is upgraded.
The Huawei E367 dongle,which can swivel to stand vertically & obtain the best possible signal,is released ahead of it's networks upgrades to support HSPA+,as part of a gradual nationwide roll-out. It also contains a card slot for microSDHC memory cards upto 32GB in capacity.
On sale now,you are able to buy the dongle on pre pay for 69.99 with 1 gig of data ready to go. On a one month rolling contract,the price drops to 49.99 and 15 per month for 3GB, or free on a 18.03 a month for 15GB.
Existing customers can also upgrade their Three dongle for 59.99.

1 gig of data is just far too low for me i have a t-mobile PAYG dongle and i get unlimited surfing whether i top 2 per day or Unlimited surfing for 15 a month.Although i have to say the service at times can be poor and often has connection issues due to weak signals and other factors.Three's service although better in quality is just more expensive and most importantly data is capped.

I ain't that sad I don't look at many You Tube or PORN videos I make my credit last me & 7 gig sometimes in one month I never fully use it. For 15 you get 3 gig but I generally use about 5 in a month. Three is the best value for mobile broadband. Also unlike some other networks they don't use the horrible image compression which makes websites & pictures look horrible

OK I have just got one of these new high speed dongles. Am just on my way home now so will report back later on. I already have excellent coverage in my area on Three and after reading a review on Top10 Broadband they said they got an average speed of 5.6mb compared to the old 1.4 so it sounds good.

The verdict is................crap!! After using my new super fast HSPA+ broadband dongle all day yesterday I never got any such speeds. But. Three said that the network roll out is not yet complete but will be soon so hang onto it. They said even though they are on sale now you won't get the speeds as yet How silly of Three to do that. Nice dongle though which also can take upto 32 gig mirco sd cards. it comes with an extra cable & you can stand the dongle upright or twist it though in reality it makes little difference to signal. But I do have a great signal where I live plus it was showing HSPA+. Confused?? Me too
