Mobile Broadband
with Three.
Your Three Mobile Broadband Wi-Fi hub allows
you to create a secure Wi-Fi connection using
your USB dongle. This means you can now
connect multiple devices to your dongle, like
laptops, tablets, games consoles and even
smartphones, all at the same time.
Our network is an advanced 3G
network designed to give you
a faster, smoother experience
when using Mobile Broadband.
And we have the UK’s biggest
3G network so you’ll get a 3G
signal more often and in more
places than on other networks.
It’s important to position
your hub where you have the
strongest signal, as this is
where Mobile Broadband
works best – like upstairs
near a window. The Wi-Fi
means that you can be online
wherever you like nearby, so
you’re not tied to using a cable.

on the top of your hub.
