Mobile Broadband keeps Wi-Fi devices connected when you’re on the move. So, you’re not always having to find a Wi-Fi network.
One way you can get Mobile Broadband is to use an internet dongle to create a portable hotspot and connect multiple devices. We've got a variety of data plans available, so it's easy to choose a Mobile Broadband deal that works for you.
Why should I use Mobile Broadband?
Mobile Broadband helps you stay connected when you're on the move. You don't have to worry about finding a Wi-Fi network, you just need mobile signal and network coverage. It's perfect when you're travelling, working or don't have access to Home Broadband.
Get online using a data SIM and set up your own wireless hotspot using a Mobile Wi-Fi router. These super internet dongles can connect multiple devices, so they're great for getting friends and colleagues online.
How does Mobile Broadband work?
Mobile Broadband uses a data SIM, similar to those used in mobile phones. Get online using one of our Mobile Broadband deals.
Tablets usually have a slot where you can insert a data SIM or you can use a Mobile Wi-Fi or MiFi router. MiFi uses a data SIM to share a Mobile Broadband connection. It's ideal if you want to connect multiple devices when you're on the move. It's just like your very own pocket-sized, internet super dongle.
What do I need to get Mobile Broadband and how long will it take to arrive?
All you need is a data SIM and either MiFi or a tablet. If you're buying a new tablet from Three, the SIM comes included. Choose either a Pay Monthly or Pay As You Go data plan on one of our Mobile Broadband deals.
Your order should arrive the next working day. If you've ordered a free SIM, that can take up to 3 days to arrive.
Is Unlimited Mobile Broadband available on Pay As You Go?
For Unlimited data, you'll need to pick a Pay Monthly plan. We offer Pay Monthly plans on fixed term or a rolling monthly basis, so you can choose to commit for the long or short term.
We also offer a free Pay As You Go data SIM that gives you 200MB of free data. Once you’ve used up that data, top-up whenever you need to using the Three app.
Can Mobile Broadband be used as Wi-Fi?
Yes. When you're in coverage and connected to our network, a Mobile Wi-Fi router will create a portable hotspot that can be used to connect multiple devices.
But if you need Home Broadband, then visit our Home Broadband page where you can choose a 4G or 5G Broadband plan. They're perfect for setting up home Wi-Fi as you don't need a landline, so you don't have to pay line rental. And there's no installation.
