Huawei’s range of Mi-Fi personal Wi-Fi hotspots gets a new addition today in the shape of the superfast 8586 model.
Launching on the Three network, it’ll be the first UK mobile Wi-Fi unit to offer HSPA+ connectivity, giving as much as a 40% speed increase over previous models. This will have the potential to get even more zippy once the network begins rolling out its 21.1 Mbps data connection upgrade.
Other new addition include an included charging cradle, while an OLED screen will display connection speed, connectivity status and data consumption info. The range’s famed one-touch activation also makes a welcome return.
The Huawei 8586 Mi-Fi with HSPA+ will launch in September, with Three’s 21.1 mbps network upgrade rolling out to 80% of the UK before the year is out.
