Three are offering for free on all 4GB Advanced plans and above 'Go Binge'. There are certain partners they have whereby if you use their service it doesn't come out of your data allowance. Partners at launch include....

Netflix
Deezer
TV Player
Sound Cloud

So use any of the above services and the data is infinite as they call it.

I put £12 in as the price as it was the cheapest plan on their site that it was listed on. I'm assuming £12 is the cheapest 4GB plan they offer.

And this is why Net Neutrality is a big issue. ISPs sidestepping open usage to give deals to big corps is the beginning of the end. Not to mention if you're not using a VPN by now.....

They claim to be "in talks" with Spotify and also that there's no fair use policy, so make of that what you will.

Netflix is also SD only ..

If they'd launched with Spotify though, I suspect the take-up would have been huge. It'll more likely be "wait and see" for many though.

Spotify for me would be great!

Would be really good if they added Amazon video on there as well

Can see someone hooking up a phone to a telly & chumping through a lot of data with this!

Can see Three bit rates plummeting to nothing, at least at times of day when they are not nothing now.

Of course, with things being bout 'supply and demand', if this takes off, 100% utilisation means prices can be raised dramatically. A win for the networks.

Will it include roaming or will the 12gb cap still apply

I can see it says go binge is included with feel at home, then it mentions restrictions, so that might include the 12gb cap

If you subsequently change your plan back to your original plan, you will no longer get Go Binge.



Okay now hold on there. I've just started a plan like a week ago; that's kinda annoying.

Completely agree with this, ISPreview has a good article on the issue

Recent customer on the essential plan so I'm assuming it's not available to me 😯

It's a open platform, Three are allowing any streaming service to join - no doubt they are buying bulk data from Three and customers pay a bit more. I am tempted.

Awesome, thanks. I contacted them earlier when I saw this and it applies to hotspot, too

existing customers being screwed as usual looking at the details, you would need to upgrade irrespective of if you are on an eligible plan already

Imagine theyd have to mirror all the material on their own servers - and we'd get all the content from there, rather than each company's own. They don't want to be paying for external links surely?

Been on an advanced plan for a month or so. Contacted three via the online chat and they added go binge to my account. No hassle, seems I was eligible.

Thanks OP

yep I did the same thing, spoke to them in live chat and was told that they have added the Go Binge addon onto my account for free. Got a text saying will be active within 4 hours. And then got another text latersaying it'll be active from my next bill date. Just wondering if you had this text too?

thanks

Just for simplicity:

Existing customers.Existing customers can get Go Binge by changing plan … Existing customers.Existing customers can get Go Binge by changing plan to one with more data/minutes provided that the new plan is an eligible one (see above). Existing customers who are already on an eligible plan (see above) will still need to change plan to one with more data/minutes to get Go Binge. If you subsequently change your plan back to your original plan, you will no longer get Go Binge. If you cannot change plan to an eligible plan with more data/minutes (i.e. you’re on an Advanced plan with All-you-can-eat data and All-you-can-eat minutes), please call 333 to speak to us.

If you have Three payg sim you can get the 4GB Advanced ([email protected] etc)sim with £2 off a month - £10 x 12 months using the option for existing customers on the website and £45 Quidco/TopCashback

I'm wondering whether people who just do deezer and Netflix would ditch their landlines for this it could lead to contention issues for other home broadband 4g users. EE in pure greed have ditched their 4g mast in our area for the three one to 'consolidate' under usage of the masts. I'm on EE 14.50 32gb deal and use it at home without a landline. If i cant stream I'd go back to TalkTalk landline like a shot ****
