Three news

Customers taking 3's mobile broadband offering can expect the cheapest fees and fastest connection out of any of the five main providers of the service, according to a recent review.

PC Pro conducted reviews of mobile broadband deals offered by 3, T-Mobile, Orange, O2 and Vodafone.

It was found that 3's highest recorded "actual through put" of 2.6Mb came close to its advertised speed of 2.8Mb.

Its average inner-London connection speed of 1.6Mb also compares favourably with other companies included in the review.

According to the publication: "3 offers the cheapest monthly broadband tariff, but also recorded the fastest connection speed of the five networks tested here.

"Connection speeds were consistently between 1 and 2Mb, providing comparable performance to Vodafone."

However, it was found that 3's connection did not fare so well when being used on trains travelling through deadspots.
