Huawei, the difficult to pronounce Shenzen manufacturer, are set to bring a new HSPA+ MiFi to Three, the first of its kind in the UK.

The 8586 Mi-Fi touts an initial 40 per cent speed increase, with further jumps planned as the network starts to rollout its 21.1 mbps upgrade.

The MiFi will have an OLED screen showing things like data used and connection speed. The single button activation found in the previous MiFi is also thankfully still there.

Included in the new Huawei setup will be a charging cradle, meaning you don't need to use the conventional USB to plug method found in older models. 

Expect to see the new MiFi land around September and the 21.1 mbps network speed to arrive on 80 per cent of the Three network by the end of the year.
