Three mobile broadband users can now take advantage of the ZTE MF730M dongle.

The USB modem - which connects to the broadband provider's Advanced 3G network - has been made available to consumers on both pay-monthly and pay-as-you-go plans.

It currently provides access to mobile broadband services for around 80 per cent of the UK population, who live in areas covered by Three.

The ZTE MF730M uses simple plug-and-play technology, meaning users can access the internet simply by inserting the device into a USB drive.

It is Windows 8 certified - meaning the dongle works with Microsoft's latest operating system - and can be used on both PCs and Macs.

The dongle is just 86mm long and 10.5mm slim, so it fits easily into pockets, briefcases and laptop bags.

This means the mobile broadband device can be carried around at all times, ensuring users can get online as and when required.

Consumers seeking pay-as-you-go mobile broadband can get their hands on a ZTE MF730M dongle for a one-off fee of £24.99. The USB modem comes with 1GB of data pre-loaded.

Alternatively, the dongle costs just £4.99 to buy when consumers commit to a one-month rolling contract for 5GB of data. This is priced at £15.99 per month

Consumers seeking an entry-level option can pay £7.87 per month for 1GB of data.

In December 2013, Three became the fourth mobile broadband provider in the UK to launch 4G services.

The firm followed the lead of EE, which has been offering next-generation mobile broadband since October 2012, and Vodafone and O2, which launched their 4G networks in August 2013.
