Three has launched a snazzy new mobile Wi-Fi model for the winter season.

Consumers are now able to pick up a white Mi-Fi device, giving them an attractive alternative to the standard black design.

The high-gloss Huawei Mi-Fi router allows users to create portable Wi-Fi hotspots while on the move.

They can connect up to five Wi-Fi enabled devices securely to the internet at once, without having to worry about cables or wires.

"Smaller than most phones, the Mi-Fi can slip easily into a bag or pocket and be on hand to connect you to the internet at the touch of a button," Three explained.

The broadband provider explained that it is not just the exterior Mi-Fi design that has had a makeover – the device is now offering faster download speeds as well, at up to 21.1Mb.

It features next generation HSPA+ mobile broadband technology, meaning consumers can download videos, browse pictures, tweet and surf the web around 50 per cent faster than before.

"The Mi-Fi screen displays key information like the amount of data used, speed of the connection and length of browsing time, as well as a new look dashboard for viewing SMS and changing settings," the firm added.

In addition, the Wi-Fi user name and password can be seen on screen for fast pairing with new gadgets.

David Kerrigan, Head of Mobile Broadband at Three, said the provider was delighted to be able to offer customers "a seasonal twist" on its great new Mi-Fi service.

"With groundbreaking technology inside, users can also enjoy the full benefit of Three's award winning mobile broadband network," he added.

The broadband provider is aiming to have 80 per cent of its network upgraded to HSPA+ by the end of 2011, with the rest to follow soon afterwards.

Three is also hoping to secure 4G spectrum in the upcoming Ofcom auction, allowing the firm to offer super-fast mobile broadband services in the UK.
