THAT WILL GO LIVE AFTER THE 7th of OCTOBER!!! Sorry for not pointing that out!

Three announced today that it would allow every pay monthly users to upgrade to unlimited data for £3 per month. Their cheapest data SIM Only package (2GB per month) costs £5.11 per month. You can upgrade to TRULY unlimited for another £3 per month. That's less than £100 for a whole year.

This does not apply to SIM Only contracts. See

"Moderator: Sedge on September 28, 2011
@ Rhys – Currently we don’t offer all-you-can-eat data on our SIM only plans. If you want all-you-can-eat data I’d recommend cancelling your SIM 300 (You’ll need to give 30 days notice if you’ve already signed up!) and joining The One Plan or a Talk or Text plans. You’ll need to cancel your SIM only plan by calling 333."

So it's TRULY unlimited except ...
as long as you don't use your phone as a modem or use the SIM in a broadband dongle

So no doubt next we'll get LITERALLY unlimted and soon after that ABSOLUTELY unlimited - none of which comes anywhere close to having no limits.

Mere marketing bull

The thing is, you can get BT and NNTP apps for tablets and phones.

How are they ever going to know if the SIM card finds itself tethered to another box?

Ooooh, I expect I could stream quite a bit to a phone. Let's see. an HD webcam feed at 10MByte/minute. Leave that running on your phone for a day and you'd gobble up 14GB or 400+GB per month.
How long until you found their "truly unlimited" deal had an upper limit - or you got canned? ;) I'd guess less than a week before they switched you off.

Yes as long as it's through your mobile phone...No tethering.

Doc.

The fact that the offer is good is completely negated by the fact the company offering it is 3.

Not voted either way.
shane2010#16
just phoned then not a clue about it

We haven't seen the small print for exclusions and limitations as yet but, expanding on your suggestion, how about the "Zero" contract SIM? No minimum monthly cost and no minutes or texts included (obviously) but unlimited data add-on and appropriate apps may mean a handy package for £3pm.

I suspect this may just be a product to "convert" a data component of a tariff to an "unlimited" data component so one has to already be paying for a data component.

The staff haven't been informed as the add-on isn't available yet. Try after 7th October. :)

How do they even know if you're tethering? I tethered my HTC Touch Pro 2 for two years and Vodafone never said a word to me about it.
