Three is giving mobile broadband users the opportunity to improve their online experience with a new super-fast USB modem.

The broadband provider is now offering the Huawei E3256 dongle, which takes advantage of Three's ultra-fast HSPA+42 network to provide faster download speeds.

By the end of 2012, more than half of all UK consumers will be able to utilise this network, enabling them to do more online on the move.

The Huawei E3256 has a premium finish and design, with features including a rotating head with a USB connector which tucks in and swivels out when users need it.

Just like a mini aerial, the dongle can also bend to stand vertically.

The dongle is available for a one-off upfront cost of £24.99 on a one-month rolling contract - priced at £15.99 per month - for which customers receive 5GB of data.

Consumers also have the option of pay-as-you-go mobile broadband, where the dongle costs an initial £44.99 and comes with 1GB of data.

Bryn Jones, Chief Technology Officer at Three, said the firm was "delighted" to be able to offer the advanced Huawei E3256 dongle.

"When it’s connected to our HSPA+42 network, customers will be able to enjoy ultra-fast internet access for better streaming, browsing and downloading," he stated.

James Powell, Product and Solutions Director at Huawei Device UK & Ireland, said the new model demonstrates Huawei’s "leadership" of the mobile broadband market.

"Connectivity remains an essential part of the Huawei story and the E3256 demonstrates the same technical excellence and design that have brought our smartphones and home devices such attention," he stated.

"It is a great prospect for customers looking to stream video and other data-hungry content on the move."
