Truly unlimited use, includes tethering.

My wife works for BT and right now we get BT phone usage & BT unlimited internet free. However she may be retiring soon and we will lose the perk. It sounds like with this 3 deal, we can dump BT altogether (including the line rental) and do everything we need for £15/month.This looks a really good deal to me.

80GB Fair Usage policy applies.

I did speak to 3 network PAYG team, a representative said that this does not include "internet sharing from phone to computer" aka tethering.

Please comment and follow up if otherwise.

This might not be so bad as PAYG but I do not know of anyone that has a good word to say about 3 especially those would have had a contract with them and then tried to get them to stop taking money from their accounts.
Of course they could have changed IMHO just make sure that you do not give them any bank or card details,

good network not so good customer service i dont really call them anyway so good for the deal

If it includes tethering then red hot - 80GB is alot of data a month if its that, I am sure Talktalk is 40gb?
#6
OK for the £15p/m, but GiffGaff offer 1500 minutes on £25p/m.

But here's a debate to go over - a mate of mine swears by 3's network saying it has vastly improved and far better than O2 (GiffGaff). Is it worth paying a premium for a network that is reliable?

Has your mate checked every location in the UK and compared signal and transfer rates. Course not so fatuous statement.

I am on the 3 PAYG network and have been for 5 months. I pay £15 per 30 days and get 300 mins 3000 texts and 500mb data. With this deal I will still pay the same and get unlimited data. After reading all the news articles on this deal, it does seem to include tethering. I nearly always get a better signal than my wifes Orange phone and my daughters Voda. This means that I can now ditch my BT broadband and it 2 months, my BT phoneline as well. This whole deal means I will save over £34 per month. Very Happy.

Depends on your location and network at the end of the day. Three uses orange and tmobile's 3g signal and the fact that them 2 combined cover most of the country, you are on a winner. In city centres, 3 has got amazing 3.5g speeds, and its uncapped I think. Im on t and was on 3 and found their 3g much quicker than my t 3g atm.

I phoned 3 customer service and they were adamant that this price plan is for the handset only, no tethering allowed. Still reasonable deal if you use a lot of data on the handset.

Im not supposed to tether my unlimited data but do it often on the train. As long as you are not p2p'ing or downloading like 1gb in one session, they cant tell and it wont get flagged.
#13
any idea when this kicks in?
#14
recently moved to 3 from BTmobile, not had a problem with customer service so far (and I have used them!), signal works in more places than BT and the 3g is so much faster. Infact, I recently moved house and get faster web connection over 3 via the mobile than I do on my landline broadband. I pay a tenner a month, capped at 1gb with no tethering, so this has got to be a good deal for a mere fiver more a month. hot.

I read here http://www.v3.co.uk/v3/news/2275139/three-tariff-unlimited-internet that tethering is allowed so I suppose there is quite a lot of conflicting info out there at the moment. Perhaps I will wait until it is clarified. Keeping my fingers crossed

I know they say that but like a poster said I can use my ip4 on 4.3 as a wifi hotspot and pick it up of my iPad how would they know ?
#19
I imagine as long as no huge downloads or Iplayer sessions you would be ok
#20
Am I missing something here?

Surely the 300/3000/unl deal is £30/month as the All In One add on is additional to your £15 top up?

I have recently had a problem concerning my Three PAYG dongle.

I contacted their Custoner Services Dept and was very impressed. Everything sorted.

What's more, about 10 minutes ago I receive another call from Three, just checking everything was still OK.

Very good service in my opinion

Make shure you try a 3 sim to see what signal your going to get.I just managed to get out a 24 month contract as they have cut 2g roaming in my area and could no longer get a signal in my house,they are completely stopping piggy backing orange i believe so just make shure you get a good 3g singal,im not alone with this problem either

Even with no official tethering I think it is a good deal as unless you go silly with it they wont know as I can use things like iplayer on my android so I still use heavy data on the phone.
#25
To echo most of the sentiment here - Three have outstanding 3G reception, but woeful customer service. On the flip side; I only had to deal with them twice in three years.

Are those applicable? The tariff is not called All in One, so I would not think so. On the other hand the Three website is so sh*t that I would not conclude anything from it. You will have to wait for the paperwork to arrive.

But be careful: it says under tariff details 150 MB data per top-up. I cannot see how that is a "clarification" of "all you can eat", but it sounds actually more likely than 80 GB. After all Three charges 10 pound per GB on data SIMs.
#27
Given that it is a rolling 30 day contract, it means they can change their minds in 30 days time and as such is not worth getting rid of home broadband.
#28
Ive had a 3 pay as you go sim all last month with my HTC desire and used the built in WIFI hot spot to connect my lap top to the phone internet. All month long.

Shhh.... don't tell them that!

No charges what so ever. I wonder if 3 have any technology to detect or block tethering?
#29
I am on 'the one plan' and using tethering i can surf inet almost as fast as using wi-fi on my 10 gb virgin media broadband.

So it is advertised as no fair usage and truely unlimited yet it does have they do have a fair usage policy AND a limit?

Now I doubt anyone could actually use 80gb or even intends too but to me this is misleading.
#31
I'm in contract with 3, used to have woeful customer service but in recent times seem to have got there act together. In fact the customer service I've recieved has been above and beyond. Have been with all the other networks and work for Utility Warehouse. Signal is decent but don't think it's as good as 02 in my opinion ( I travel extensively around the Midlands ) 3g signal is hands down the best.

In case anyone doesn't know though, 3 do share signal with orange, (that link just says it's only 3G) but I still get 2G signal when there's no 3g available so that might only affect some people

Am I missing something here? I pay £15 per month for my mobile broadband 24-month contract with 3 and I only get 15 gigs per month. Even with the 80 gig limit this seems too good to be true...
#35
Do I have this correct?

You initially buy a £15 top-up, and thereafter you buy an "All in one 15" add-on each month?
Was thinking this would be a good option for my San Francisco.

Also. do Three phones come unlocked or are unlockable?

My daughter wants a Blackberry so was thinking of getting her one, using the sim from that in my San Fran and putting a different sim in the Blackberry.

One more suited to her usage pattern.

Does that make sense lol?
#36
This is a bloody good deal! Should be hotter, 3 have the best 3G network.also compared to giffgaff as its an add on you can skip when not needed for example holidays. Voted hot, just signed up for 12 months with them otherwise would have considered just moving pay as you go.

Hi not sure what you mean lol. Anyway if you use a blackberry you don't get the blackberry services with 3 (you need to pay an extra £5), but you can access the net and use all the other services except the rim ones.

I believe their mobiles are usually locked, but they might have changed lately, I don't know.
#38
Wow, makes me think about quitting my 15gb plan... would they detect if I use the sim card on my MiFi???
#39
could you get this to work in a MI FI :) sounds too god to be true :P
#40
now showing only on the £25/month sim only so cold from me, £15/month is showing capped at 1GB as of 5.30am today
