3 Web Cube: Borg-friendly wireless broadband

I’m easily confused. At times when I pick up the small slab of metal and glass in my pocket and have access to the sum total of all human knowledge it feels like I am living in the future. And then I move house and have to wait seemingly forever for a basic internet connection, which even more bizarrely has to come through my landline telephone. What is this the 90s?

Fortunately Three relise how deeply silly this all is and have brought out a shiny hew alternative to traditional fixed-line dependent broadband for folks who aren’t downloading monstrous amounts of data on a monthly basis.

The new Web Cube is packed in a swanky modern case and comes with a mobile broadband SIM card already inserted. Simply plug it in to your wall socket, turn it on, and your home will automagically have Wi-Fi internet from Three. And when you move house, just take it with you.

The Web Cube is HSPA+ enabled to the 21.1Mbps technical standard, though you’d be more likely to experience 2-5Mbps, which is enough for casual internet use. I wouldn’t venture into the brave new world of streaming services however as you may hit your download limits sooner than you expect and experience a little bit of lag if you tried to get something like an OnLive up and running.

Three is offering customers a choice of two Web Cube tariffs to provide flexibility and great value. Customers can opt for a one-month rolling contract with 10GB of data costing £15 a month plus an upfront charge of £59.99 for the device. Alternatively Three offers a 24-month contract with 15GB of data costing £15.99 a month and no upfront charge for the device.
