Web Cube - First Impressions

So these are just some quick impressions on the new Webcube from Three.  It is very simple to set-up out of the box.  All you need to do is put the sim into the little slot, plug it in and you are off and running.  The SSID and the wifi key are printed on the bottom of the cube so you wont be able to lose the wifi code.

Webcube Signal StrengthOn the top of the cube it shows you the strength of the signal you have, you can only really see it in the dark.  In the day time I think you would have to cover the top to be able to see it.

I have moved to different parts of the house and it does go down.

Also the cube does light up when it is being used, but the lights go out if your machine goes to sleep.  I have just been watching this as currently my little netbook is connected to the webcube.  As soon as the netbook went to sleep the cube light goes off, as soon as you wake the laptop the light comes back on.

Below you can see a picture of it lit up.

I have conducted a couple of speed tests using this device, so far I have been getting around 5.5Mbps Download and around 2.2 Mbps for upload,, which is pretty good.  I will be doing some more test shortly as well as doing a comparison between family and friends who have a standard BT and SKY broadband package to see how they compare.

If there is any specific you want to ask about the device, or you would like me to test then please feel free to get in contact.

I am always looking at ways to improve, and so I am always interested in feedback so feel free to add any comments to the site, or you can email me here
