Got rubbish broadband speeds? Try the Three Home-Fi. New plan announced.

You’re at home. You’re struggling with slow broadband. The reality of “Superfast internet” is either a flaky ADSL connection or, if you’re properly unlucky, old-school dial-up access.

Some are lucky. Some can get fibre to the cabinet or cable broadband access, but for the rest it’s a super-slow connection. Sure, over the years there have been alternatives. Satellite broadband is an option, but it’s usually more expensive than a standard ADSL connection and – if you want to try and keep the price down – a low data cap too.

We’ve covered the Home-Fi routers from Three before. You may remember how residents in Hebron got some for free and we had a good look at the Home-Fi router last year. Now the network is launching a new 40GB plan for this, and if you can get a decent Three signal at home, you’ll be laughing.

No line rental, no wires, no lengthy installation and up to 32 devices connected to the Home-Fi wireless hotspot with plenty of data per month. Have a guess how much?

Try just £24.

To be honest that’s about all I need to say. I like this. In real-life usage you’ll probably be getting around 20Mbps over the router and you can find out more about it in the video below or on the Three website. It will appeal to many, including those living in homes and caravans without a directly wired connection. It’ll also free you from that infamous line rental charge, which can range from £14.99 to £18.99 per month just for having a bit of cable into your house.

The router works a bit like a MiFi, but plugs into the mains. It grabs a 4G signal from the local Three mast and then gives you a WiFi hotspot to connect to.
