This is using the Three network.
Can I use this with my laptop and download and stream movies??

Yes you can, the full data allowance can be used for tethering.
Is this any good for beeg?
I am on 3 and they offer wifi calling do SMARTY offer this?

No it’s coming app
can you change to this from an existing 50gb plan

I am on Smarty and they do not say they support it but occasionally of late in my phone notification area I see Volte calling. Perhaps they are testing it

I KNOW it's 3 network, but is the connection and speed ok on Smarty?

That’s 4G calls (VoLTE) not Wi-fi Calling (VoWiFi)

Both are coming apparently, ID has them already, inhouse Three sister Superdrug Mobile will be next


Vo = Voice over

Personal experience speaking as someone who drives a lot in rural area’s (midlands). I switched to smarty from three as they were cheaper and I found my signal much worse. Internet speeds were rather poor with many blackspots. My three signal had also been poorer in recent years. (Was with them for 4 years). Only stayed with them for 2 months. That said cracking price if your in a decent area.

I drive the same area’s every week, I was with three long enough to know exactly when I hit blackspots etc and when my signal was poor. While I cannot obviously comment on how good or bad a network is for everyone I know exactly how it was for me. I don’t know how either but I know it was worse than when I was with three. Worse enough for me to justify spending £20 with EE a month instead :/

Voxi, Smarty, Giff Guff all have MVNO status even as 100% owned subsidiaries of the main network, you may get less priority on the network when individual base stations are saturated with connections to devices, that’s why they MVNO’s don’t have VoLTE as that gets priority access to that band & (slower speed) coverage. Even EE payg doesn’t have access to the full EE network, which is shockingly taking the irony to another level.

Smarty are to launch VoLTE.

VoLTE is usually on 800MHz most countries, pushing calls to VoLTE gives better call quality, keeps higher bands for speed & speeds up the folding of 2&3G bands to 4&5G by means of 2/3G closure - many networks in many countries have already killed 2/3G bands off for better 4G/LTE+ offerings https://www.hotukdeals.com/visit/comment/41095358/16431503

Problem is it's not just networks, it’s the hardware (mobile/MiFi/router) & it’s supporting bands can compound the problem, and vice versa. Unlocking a phone is one thing, it supporting every band your device can access from the network base stations is another, add in MVNO second class status on the network and it can all get pretty murky coverage.

At least 999/112 works on any network signal available regardless of what sim is in your phone.

Well maybe they will be nice, certainly I’ve found overseas staff generally more willing to do missed promo applications to accounts than most U.K. based staff that act like your defrauding them and putting their job at risk by asking, drama queens.

Let me try to explain - credit to whomever it was on HUKD who told me!

Smarty apparently do not have access to band 20 (800Mhz) - this is the slowest, but widest coverage band (hence generally used for VoLTE). This can explain 2 things, one good one bad:

The good: mobiles are dumb! They select a band based on strongest signal, not fastest data - if you have a faster alternative to band 20, this makes Smarty faster! Particularly of use in a fixed position data device (e.g. 4G router). This explains Smarty faster than Three examples.

The bad: this one is shorter! If you don't have another band available then you don't have a signal! This explains Smarty worse coverage than Three examples.

Unfortunately the "what are speeds/coverage on [any network] like?" question is akin to the question "what is the local independent butcher like (without stating the exact location)?"! In some areas he/she has the best meat for miles, in others he/she may be known as 'the gristle shop', while in others he/she may have cracking prices, ok/good products, but only one disinterested spotty oik serving and it takes 2 days to get served.

Point taken (and they is less key strokes)! Would 'one' be (jolly well) acceptable?
