MOBILE OPERATOR Three has announced it will sell a premium mobile broadband dongle, the Huawei E367, from 7 April.
The Huawei E367 is Three's fastest offering for mobile broadband and its first to include evolved high-speed packet access, HSPA+. It will be available to buy online and in stores next Thursday on a range of different contract options. Pay as you go will be one deal, which will have a 1GB data allowance and a price of £69.99 for the dongle.
Two different monthly options will be on offer. The first comes in the form of a rolling monthly contract of £15.99 per month for a 5GB data allowance with a one off payment of £49.99. The second offers the dongle for free for £18.03 per month on a 24 month contract with a 15GB data allowance.
Existing Three customers will be able to upgrade their current dongle for a fee of £59.99. The E367 contains a Qualcomm 8200a chipset for reduced latency that facilitates HSPA+ technology. Three told The INQUIRER the dongle offers up to 21.6Mbps download and 1.45Mbps upload speeds. Three claims that this means the dongle offers up to 40 per cent faster web browsing compared to its previous dongles.
The dongle has a swivelling USB head so there is no need for a cap and once inserted into a laptop, for example, the device can stand vertically to take up less space and get a better signal. µ
