Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Three's stats estimate eight hours of battery life with continuous use, which seemed a tad optimistic – I certainly never got past six. Then again, since it comes with both a mains charger for the home and another for the car (cigarette lighter type) you shouldn't have to rely on the battery often.

Three In Car Wi-Fi

Might be worth it to keep the kids quiet on a long trip

Verdict

Three's In Car Wi-Fi is certainly a great idea, especially if you've been wracking your brains trying to think of a way to keep the kids entertained on a long journey. In practice though, its ability to deliver was patchy and unreliable, at least in the area of north London where I tested it.

If you keep your ambitions moderate, and don't try to stream video on several devices simultaneously, it could come in handy for surfing and checking email, but it's certainly not the broadband experience we've become accustomed to at home or at work. Three is saying that it's extending its network reach with a range of new masts, which will probably help, and at least the network is offering a 14-day money-back guarantee if you have the same sort of problems as I had. So it looks like you’ve nothing to lose if you fancy giving it a try. ®
