Three has made efforts to perfect its mobile broadband service

People who rely on browsing the web, sending emails and playing online games on the go may have further reasons to sell a mobile phone and sign up to a deal with the network Three.

The company, which is renowned for its above-average mobile broadband provision, has won a prestigious title at the T3 Gadget Awards 2010.

Its MiFi product was named Best Work Gadget of the Year, beating the likes of the Apple Macbook Pro, iPhone 4 and BlackBerry Bold 9700.

MiFi is a tool that allows people to open a Wi-Fi connection at any spot on Three's 3G network and share it with up to five enabled handsets.

According to T3, the technology is "a typically savvy move from this increasingly influential mobile telecoms and internet provider", adding "the MiFi has proved a sensation".

Earlier this year, Three was named the best provider of mobile broadband services in the UK by respondents to a YouGov survey, winning ten of the 12 categories.

Julie Snape, head of marketing at Envirofone, says: "If you fancy trying MiFi, or simply want to upgrade to a new handset, why not trade-in your phone? You could even make some cash."
