Quick review: New Three Huawei E586 MiFi mobile broadband modem
13 October 2011
Conclusion: If you’ve not yet been to the product page on Three and checked out the various plans on offer, we would highly recommend you do. In our opinion, if you’ve never used a MiFi in the past and think you have the need for a device like it, we would suggest opting either for the pay as you go option or the one-month contract option as the rest do involve at least 18-month commitment and will be more expensive in the long run.
Pros: Portable and lightweight, Minimal setup required, Easy to use interface
Cons: Not always reliable, variable speeds dependent on network connection, Can be expensive if tariff / plan not carefully chosen
Summary: Without the HSPA+ capabilities, Three’s latest MiFi hotspot would still be a stylish mobile broadband unit capable of reliable, on-the-go connectivity. With HSPA+, and with the flexible tariff system Three have in place, it becomes a genuinely viable alternative to a fixed broadband connection for light internet users.
