Three has priced up - and released - its "value" portable modem-cum-wireless-router.

The Huawei E5331 will cost you £50 if you want it PAYG mobile broadband, though that includes 1GB of data.

You can get the MiFi for £30 if you're willing to cough up £16 a month, a deal that grants you 5GB of data each month.

The gadget serves up to five Wi-Fi-connected devices with an internet link for up to four and a half hours off its on-board battery, Three said.

It will connect by HSPA+ to provide download speeds of up to 21Mbps, though Three's network has yet to be upgraded to that speed. ®
