Mobile broadband provider Three has launched its new Web Cube which has been dubbed 'broadband in a box'.

The cube is aimed at students and people who want broadband but not to be tied into a phone line or a lengthy contract.

The box generates a Wi-Fi signal powered by Three's 3G network and comes ready to use with a broadband SIM card. It can be moved from place to place simply by unplugging it and connecting using a username and password.

It offers speeds of up to 10Mb and can connect up to five devices to the web at any given time with a signal range of 30m.

The product is currently in the trial stage with rollouts in Leeds, Glasgow and Edinburgh planned for the coming months before it is launched nationwide.

It costs £59.99 to buy the Web Cube and a one month rolling contract costs £15.

If people are willing to commit to a 24 month contract then they can get their hands on the cube for free.

"We hope to be able to roll out Web Cube nationwide very soon, so if you're not in Glasgow, Edinburgh or Leeds but you're still interested, you can register your details online and we'll be in touch when we have more information," the firm said in a statement.

"In the meantime, if you manage to get your hands on one, or if you know someone who has one, we'd love to hear your feedback."

Earlier this year, it was reported that Three has signed a new deal with Dell which see its mobile broadband pre-installed on consumer devices.
