Three 30GB Data, unlimited minutes, unlimited texts (Sim Only, 12 month contract, given when asking about contract renewal) - £20 per month

LocalFound 2nd Aug 2016
I called three today as my current Sim Only contract is up for renewal. I said that I was thinking about taking the 16GB EE deal that is currently on and they offered:

30GB data
Unlimited calls
Unlimited texts
12 month contract (Sim only)
£20 per month.

Seems like a decent offer considering you get the "Feel at home" offer to use data in certain countries, which is the thing that put me off the EE deal.

Might be worth giving them a call if you are looking for an upgrade whilst the EE deal is still valid.

Edit - my current contract was a £24 per month, as above but with 8GB data. I only use circa 5GB per month which is perhaps why they have given such a generous allowance. However, since I have moved onto a narrowboat with no broadband, it will be great for tethering my laptop to (which is included in the allowance).

Thanks, will give it a try later.
Superb deal...HOT!
I posted the same deal about 2 months ago and it was voted cold for some reason even if there was any better deal on the market. voted hot as I'm on the same deal and very happy
Hi. Currently on the 16gb EE deal and I can't fault the speed atm. Is this 4g and what are the speeds like for say streaming a show to watch? Also does anyone know if you can get the £59 Amazon voucher or the 6 months half price? Thanks
Great deal, however being unhappy with Three 4G speeds, I'll stick with EE for now.
why not go with giffgaff £20 goodybag? unlimited text data and mins. you're also not tied to a contract but if you cba topping up every month you can have it rolling.

​sorry it's always on data so not necessarily unlimited.
I would go for this instead of O2 10GB of data (also unlimited minutes & texts). Sadly, I had nothing but bad experiences with Three's customer service and coverage.
Is that 30GB/month?

because its a) 6GB of usable speed and b) they use o2 which might as well be no data where I live and work.
giffgaff aren't truly unlimited. After a certain amount they have the right to restrict your speed.
Last time I read into it it was something like 12GB.

Also, when I was on giffgaff I couldn't use my hotspot to connect with my laptop (but can on Three). Big minus for me
happy with the deal they offered me couple months ago: 600mins, unlimited text, unlimited data and 30gb tethering, £18pm rolling contract

Probably because it is a retention offer. Sometimes it can be difficult to be offered the same deal depending on who you speak to.

Heat regardless OP, great deal from Three (_;)

I'm using giffgaff for last few month, have to say one thing they are terrible on 4G/3G data. Even if you take 1GB data you never going to finish that 1GB data in one month. Such a terrible data coverage (even in central london).

This is my current predicament as I think I may get better coverage with EE in my local area. But for my trips abroad the roaming is really useful. I'll decide by the end of the day...

4G. Realistically, the speed is more likely relative to the combined effect of traffic shaping and the signal coverage in the specific location where you intend to stream - that is true of any network. Three's KFI can be read here, EE's here. EE seem particulatly hell-bent on limiting peer-to-peer traffic, especially between 8AM to 2AM inclusive: "During peak hours, the traffic is slowed down to 50kbps and during off peak is capped at 1800kbps."
OP deal is a personally-tailored retention deal. Not sure how you are applying that to a different situation of implied new customer who has different incentivisation options such as Amazon vouchers etc.

It's 6gb then they cap your speed to 256kbps apparently so useless for anything but email and messaging. Though some claim that their speed actually increases to 256kbps once they hit the cap...

Because you are lucky if you can get 3g let alone 4g terrible network they also get a third class service after O2 and Tesco that probable why they are so bad.

Not a particularly valid comaparison when most VM retention deals' unlimited data is 3G not 4G and limited to 3.5GB, then capped at snail speed. VM good for reduced costs to 08xx though, yet loses out to 3s often zero roaming costs. Usual horses for courses.
I got a Three sim with unlimited texts, 600 Min and 900 MB for £8pm

I'd be moving to Life Mobile (via uSwitch) in that instance.
Best deal I have seen from Three in a long time. Heat added.
I got offered from 3 retentions last month the following
Unlimited mins
Unlimited text
Unlimited data
4gb personal hotspot
All for £15 a month
thanks! a week until the end of my contract, jumped on this!
as far as i know, you can't tether data to other devices in 3. Pls mind that if you need to tether.
Jumped ship from 3 to EE a few months back. Much better signal and will take the 16Gb over 3's unlimited data as I am mostly connected to Wifi anyway.

Good deal but be aware 3 can be a bit hit and miss when it comes to signal
I was offered this same deal when I tried cancelling to move to O2's unl call+text, 10gb for £18/month. then decided not to move to O2 or take this 3 deal.
Still on their unlimited everything for £23/month rolling monthly.

The offer I was given today allowed tethering.
Great deal, much prefer Three's customer service over EE
Few days ago I was willing to move from three to EE. I'm on unlimited data at 17£ per month. Called up three to get the pac code and after countless stupid offers, useless conversations with their experts at the end I managed to squeeze out a 13£ per month deal for 10gb data (that's enough for me), but they cut of the "feel at home" benefits. Not bad, but not sure if it was worth the trouble. I'm still tempted to move to EE just because all of the stupid phone calls I had to go trough and so much missleading and wrong information from different advisers.
Just taken up this offer by the way, thanks for the head up. HOT
Got this 3months ago for £19 when had to come off my £15 one plan. Plus you can use the 30gb allowance for tethering. Took me 3 phone calls and had to ask for my pac code.
