If you are an existing customer and you're willing to tie yourself in for 2 years, this deal can still be had for £0 upfront and £17/m:

Similar experience - their signal for these routers can be quite finicky and getting any actual help from the support other than "oh you need to move the router" (when you've been getting a strong signal in the same place for months) is hopeless. They are a godsend if you don't have any other choice, but I would only get them on a monthly contract.
Another option (one I'll be taking after my contract is up) is to use your mobile as a hotspot for the house/apartment. Vodafone has much better coverage for me but their 5g router plans are expensive - so I've tried to use my cellphone as a router for the whole apartment with a cheap Vodafone unlimited max sim and it works a treat (vodafone 4g is almost double three 5g in my case).

How do tou then distribute the signal around your house?

How much are you paying for that Vodafone unlimited max SIM?
I get really good speed with mine, 80mb/s down and 40mb/s up.
I took the 24 month contract. Speeds went to under 1mbps after the 14 day cooling off period. Your speeds will be throttled.

Also if you have an Xbox, you won't be able to install games and updates as three block them.

Avoid using three for broadband.

Apartment, so no need (and I'm surprised my cellphone actually can cover a 70sqm apartment) Though if needed a cheap linksys router with a custom firmware would also work as a bridge if needed.

I get really good speed with mine, 80mb/s down and 40mb/s up.
Lucky, I kept getting 200 down the first three months on their 5g router, then it stopped properly working for a week (coudn't even run a speedtest and it was getting a decent signal from the tower via diagnosis so It was a fault from the tower) and it started working again at around 80 down, which is worse than my 4g Vodafone sim. Three support was a joke (kept going through pre-set dialogue lines) and their 2nd line just came back with "you need to move the router" BS.
I wouldn't touch Three with a bargepole when it comes to a 24 month contract, a rolling 1 month is a better deal as you don't have to put up with crap for longer than a month. Mine was ok for the first month, then speeds dropped massively. The connection itself rarely drops, but the speeds are just awful. A lot of the time webpages don't load first time and you need to refresh, Three adamant it's the website itself but it happens on 9 out of 10 websites

Technical support are clueless (I work in tech support) I've already done all the checks before I ring up and they just keep crediting my bill, I've had it 6 months now and had 3 months half price

Good luck if you need support, as while the support are very friendly, I'm sure they do this to overcompensate
£59 for the router is a great deal. Shame people are judging it on the title, and not reading between the lines.
Fwiw I have this router on the £18 per month 24 month contract and its great. Speeds of c. 20mbps down and up. My home doesn't have a stable phone line, but BT won't acknowledge this and just send an engineer every month or so to do a temporary fix, so I had no option and it's been great for me.
It is a good price for the router. They are unlocked, though you may need to change APN settings for some providers.
Currently using this on the £17pm deal had it since.november . Love it . In a 4g + area so getting around 75 65 in speeds . In a prime.area for upgrade on this for 5g city fibre laid and virgin to power masts . Downloading.over 3tb of data month . Can't fault it
If you can get this router for £59 then it’s hot. They are superb.

Yep that's the whole idea. Just on chat with them now trying to confirm.
Can you get a one month contract for only one month?

Three's Ts&Cs say you need to give 30 days' notice to end the contract, so it seems like it might be difficult to cancel before a second month's payment of £30 becomes due.
I have a few Xbox in the house - have downloaded games for kids - 40GB x 3 all at once with the xbox gold ultimate 100 game plan i think its called.

Sometimes your speeds drop - over a year - maybe 3-4 times speeds have dropped from 40+mb to maybe 6 or 7MB but in each case a quick chat to the three folks and they take £5 off your bill and within a day the speeds rise ( they say maintenance in your area causing issues)

The original routers they supplied over a year ago the B311 was horrific. It would get the speeds of 40+MB up and down but communication with devices within the house would drop out (if they connected at all) Not sure if the B900 Alexa cube had the same issue.

To summarise, The speeds are excellent, No issues with gaming (young kids so not serious). Speeds from 40MB up and 50MB down during 9-5 and outwith this speeds of 90MB down. As long as you don't use the B311 router. Lets be honest - how much speed does anyone need for the home? 40MB is more than anyone will ever need unless they are running a business with 20 employees in the loft.

But this is a pricey deal. I think the deal from a year ago was £20 and £60 cashback but I see what earlier posts mean - a £200 router for £59!

Unless you give them notice on the first day from the guy said on the chat
Great deal to get the router for £59.
Does this router come unlocked and does it have the option of connecting and external antenna. Thinking of getting it and then getting one of the Vodafone Sims mentioned as I have Vodafone mobile and can get 40-100mpbs. The higher end when in the garden hence the external Ariel question
Way higher than the 15 on my broadband.

The guy on chat said unlocked and yes you can buy external antenna. Just have a chat with them to be sure about keeping the router.
Does anyone know how does Three normally calculate the 'Final' bill if say you chose to give 30 days notice a day or two after starting the 1 month contract?

Would they charge on pro-rata basis?

eg. for extra 2 days, would the total cost be £29 + £30 + £2, or charge £29 + £30 + £30 ?

hot because this is a great 4g device, if it works out £59 then its a fantastic deal, i have it with an EE sim and its fantastic

You will be charged for 30 days from the day you give notice. so your first example is correct. £30 + £2 for simplicity sake.

I have this deal and yes its unlocked. Ive got a vodafone SIM in it right now and have bought 2 antenna that fit in the back to see if I can squeeze more juice out of it (I currently get 20Mbps up and down), will see if they make any difference when they arrive. I would think you will get good speeds for sure.

I bought this router from Amazon new (has scratches) but it's going back. I also got XPol 1 antenna and stuck it outside window and saw speeds just over 100Mbps which is 4G+. The standard antenna gets about 70-80Mbps max.

Saying that, this is from 1 specific room and any other room I go to, it drops to 30-40Mbps.

Use one of the cell info sites from the play store to see where you get a good signal.
