Hardly a bargain, going by the comments. Getting switched of after 3 days for using 350mb, or not working

What's the download speeds like on Three? I'm on Giffgaff noe and the internet constantly disconnects.

why cold ?!, anyone can tell where can get real unlimited Internet for less than that ?!

Ordered, thanks!

Cold because the chances of it actually working is very slim, as it not unlimited download, it is capped

I am on three with my ipad and get on average upto 24mbps all over the country and they are switching to 4G at no extra cost soon too. I use it to watch sky on the move so probably use around 40-50 gigs a month - like they say, its totally unlimited

Three customer services are terrible, but then again i hardly ever need to speak to them so i don't have to try to understand bad indianglish

unlimited tethering?

Will this work in my laptop which has a 3g card built in?

err no its not. I have it and as i posted, i use 40-50 gig a month at least

I moved to a new place 10 days ago, so I got this sim while waiting for sky to install my internet.
I'm using it on my nexus 7, and so far I streamed 30GB worth of Netflix movies. the download speed is 6Mbps on average, while upload is around 1.5.

Internet on H+ 12Mb/Sec. If you're in a 4G area then around 20Mb/Sec as 4G is included in this deal. I use three and it never disconnects. Fantastic coverage.

Capped? you've had bad experiences with other companies. Three don't cap. If you tether, and your on a plan that doesn't allow it, like this one, they just cut your internet. Otherwise use as much internet as you can. I've used 9.38GB, and I have about a week left.

No. They will detect you're using it for a modem and cut it off. Only for use in a phone.

No tethering on this deal? Also is the price consistent?

Clearly no experience with Three! Coverage everywhere and VERY unlimited. I used 25GB last month at 12Mbit/Sec. Get your facts right before commenting with unfounded assumptions.

Will it work in mifi device unlocked.. How long will it last.. Will I get 4g speeds

It's not bad but bear in mind it's good for 30 days' use and then you need to pay another £15 for that add-on bundle that includes your unlimited data.

Personally I've gone for this for my iPad as it's 4G and it works out at a fiver a month if you make the 6GB last the full 90 days:

ebay.co.uk/itm…7c4

store.three.co.uk/SIM…hly

the plan i have is the one plan

£15 a month gives me unlimited internet at above average broadband speeds and 2000 minutes and 5000 texts

The one plan permits tethering so you can slip the card into a phone or tablet and browse away. So get the one plan. You can get this card and then contact three to move to the one plan and they will let you tether on the remaining month on this card

Actually it isn't unlimited and most certainly not everywhere, still lots of areas with no three coverage

It would be useful if you could state how you believe it isn't unlimited. I have unlimited data through my three card and it is totally, 100%, unlimited, 40-50 gig per month so not even a hidden cap or fair usage clause.

typical troll. - amazing how they come out with statements without anything other than useful comments.

Read the terms for unlimited data rather than choosing some random limited plan - this card includes the all-you-can-eat data package. It is unlimited.

You quote look at their terms - well here they are

What is all-you-can-eat data?
All-you-can-eat data is part of our Ultimate Internet Plan, The One Plan and our All in One 15 or All in One 25 Add-ons on Pay As You Go. It’s also part of some Talk and Text plans. It gives you all the internet use you need when you're in the UK and up to 25GB of data for internet use when you’re in a Feel At Home Country.

With all-you-can-eat data you can use as much data as you want. This means you can use your smartphone as you like - so you can download apps, browse the web, look at maps and check your emails as often as you like without worrying about going over a data allowance.

I doubt these will have 4G. Three haven't started enabling 4G en-mass yet.

Try this one, directly from there site.

Does all you can eat data come with any limits? The limit is how much your device can consume – if you were to actively use data or the Internet on your phone every second, of every day, in every month (and we would be worried if you were !!!!) you would, subject to the current traffic management requirements (which vary from time to time), use up to 1000GB per month. So in essence there is a limit of how much data you can actually consume which is up to 1000GB. All this means that you can have absolute peace of mind and enjoy all the internet you need on your smartphone, without worrying.

So there is a limit, hight limit but it is a limit, so place in your pipe sunshine

sorry if the PIC is too big, I'm using the android app and was lucky that I managed to post a PIC in the first place :).
anyway, the PIC was a response to the ppl who are saying the sim is capped, CU's as u can see in the PIC, I've used around 45GB since the 14th of jan

Currently with Three and they're terrible.
Worst coverage I've ever had and the data constantly disconnects.
Phone calls every month trying to sell me a new phone too. Somehow they don't understand that I don't want another phone that wont work.

I live in London and travel around regularly and never get a constant signal.

Okay you are clearly a troll - 1000gb limit is a limit in time alone, it is a physical limit constrained by time and at least others can now see you were trolling claiming it was limited when in fact you mean ONE THOUSAND GIGA limit - would like to see someone hit that limit

Giffgaff has been almost unusable over the past 3 months or so. I would suggest you order a 3 sim and stick a £10 on it for a play. For me I'm getting nearly 4 times the speed on 3 so i shall be changing over.
