Three sets Human Hotspots on the loose in UK

Catch them if you can!

Three conducted research which showed that 31% of Brits plan to buy amazing gadgets like a tablet, a Sony PlayStation PSP or an Amazon Kindle this Christmas with 60% already having a mobile gadget of their own.

In response to the survey which also showed that an increasing number of people are using their mobile tech to go online and therefore need a stable 3G connection, Three is throwing their Human Hotspots in the fray.

Their aim is to give British people free access to mobile Wi-fi via Human Hotspots. These hotspots will use Three's Mi-Fi network and anyone who can spot a Human Hotspot can go online by connecting to the Human Hotspot's Mi-Fi. Three's wi-fi dongle can support up to five users at one time.

The survey was conducted with 3000 people and showed that 48% go online via mobile gadgets in their bedroom, 29% at their workplace and interestingly enough, 14% go online while on the toilet.

Matthew Halfin, the marketing manager for Three’s mobile broadband propositions said, "People are now using mobile internet as part of their everyday lifestyle, and we think it’s important that we’re able to support our customers by providing them with reliable and fast connectivity for wherever they want to go online."

London's Human Hotspot was out and about on Friday, but they will also put in appearances in Cardiff (26 November), Bristol (27 November), Nottingham (4 December) and Newcastle (11 December).

Are we stepping closer to wireless humans being future mobile networks? Watch this space.
