Three Retention deal: 100GB data, unltd mins/texts and Go Binge for £20 per month (£240)

Found 28th Dec 2017
I rang Three as my 12m SIMO deal was ending, had the 30GB/ 600 min / unltd texts for £18 and wanted to take on Go Binge which would have been £20 a month for the same data. The customer service rep offered me 100GB w/ unlimited mins and texts for the same price, with Go Binge on an Advanced plan so still get Feel At Home.

Awesome 👏
I’ve got this same deal, but got it as the Black Friday offer
Is it just for existing customers?
cracking offer and hot
There can't be many customers that would exceed 100Gb a month.
Got the same deal as existing customer too
Got the same deal for £16!
I get unlimited minutes and texts as well as unlimited data for 20 a month. That includes feel at home.

Mine is also a retentions deal.

What do you download to get over 100Gb?

The adult filter is still in place on my phone plan :P



Poor access to wifi and a PC. Because I've been using my phone for so long as my main media device I switched all quality settings to high or unlimited. Messaging and browsing takes up little data, but streaming data really eats through it.

I'm not on my phone all the time, in fact I use the internet far less than I would if I could actually get on a PC. I really think the quality settings have a dramatic impact on the amount of data you use.

That being said, I've now got a PC and a decent internet connection so I'm expecting my mobile usage to drop considerably.

The last 6 months I think the average was around 150GB peaking at 190 or so.



TLDR: the main reason is my phone is a substitute for a PC and internet connection. Removing quality caps has a huge impact.

I do
But then I pay £15 for unlimited data and 200 mins, as I don’t really make calls
5000 text and feel at home and go binge
Terrible service in most places and i live in london where you would think they would invest. Internet speed is a joke, a 720p video that is 5 minutes still buffers. The only reasons people stay with three or sign up in the first place are 1 their prices and 2 because they don’t notice how bad it is because they are connected to wifi and three uses that for their service as well as masking their terrible speeds.
Would be nice if Three were a network you could use 100GB on.

Speeds are crap everywhere for me, Manchester, Liverpool, Sunderland, London.....

if you have unlimited data do you need go binge - sorry I'm confused as I'm on unlimited data and don't want to miss out
Go. Inge was a free add on

How?


They messed up an original deal and I told them I was too annoyed to stay so they offered to drop the price to 16.

I get about 15gb in Liverpool city centre
I’m on:

600 minutes
unlimited text
unlimited data
12gb hotspot allowance
go binge
advanced plan

£15 pm
I use 100gb a month easily. We’re in the middle of nowhere and the copper broadband is absolutely dire - but we have great mobile signal so can get 30x the speed on 4G that we can on our router. As a consequence I play a ton of stuff on my phone from YouTube and iPlayer through my speakers as I’m working in my office. Add to occasionally playing some 4K content via the tethering to the telly and downloading large apps (sucker for new mobile games) and you’ve got quite a lot of data usage.

Obviously if the internet gets better then I won’t need to compromise like I do, but it’s great to know these deals for niche users like myself are out there. I’ll be ringing three tomorrow to sort this out as my 12 months is up in January.

Cheers OP.

Agreed. I moved from 3 to Vodafone 2 weeks ago. Much better coverage. No regrets.
I'm also on three. Getting ,200 minutes, unlimited texts I think and ayce data. Paying £23 a month. Been out of contract since July. been meaning to phone and haggle, just don't what to aim for? Originally got six months half price and £60 or 70 quidco.

Hoping to ring retentions soon. Hopefully get some ideas from here?!

Don't really want to give up ayce data as I use it as my primary broadband connection. I've been happy with three usually getting 17mb download although recently it's been down to 6 or 7. Still usable and still probably cheaper. With download into and streaming I can be a heaven user although I'm reluctant to use it.

Do any of you heavy users take anyprecauctions like a VPN or using exposed framework ( I've not used it myself but have heard of others doing so). Or does anyone recommend any other method?

Also I do not have a credit card or passport so can't prove I'm over 18! When I had a mobile broadband device and contract they said my direct debit card and transaction was enough to prove I'm over 18 but not so with the phone contract!
How much data is thethered?
Used to be 9,999 GB for £15. How has data increased in price?

Same here, using three as my primary broadband supplier. Originally in my flat the cost of a new line and able to get unlimited data for £15 PAYG with no contract was perfect for me. Ok, I could get a better speeds with a landline but prohibitive with installation and signed into a contract of at least 12 months. Now I'm just in temporary accommodation so willing to sign up for another 12 months even if my signal is not as good as they have been, about 7mb at the moment. If I can get a retentions deal for£15 I'll be happy to sign for 12 months, even better if a 30 day contract.

I've been reluctant to used too much data lately as I was thinking the lower my usage the lower the retentions offer will be. Probably ring tomorrow.

You can get it for a tenner no probs just ask for the manager and get it even cheaper . Mention you can get £50 cashback from quidco or topcashback site you can get it cheap as manager don't want to be on the phone with you so probably 7 or 8 quid .

Nice one, Thanks

However I'm torn between a £9 shared EE sim only for unlimited minutes/texts & 25 GB (another HUKD)

so unless 3 come in less than £9 I might just jump ship to EE

Indeed ... I only exceed my 64gb EE allowance on a five weekend month football or now on Xmas frenzy but i want 100 for 15 then I would go for it. Three are extremely tight at giving deals that would compete. They have a lot of customers grandfathered into unlimited 15 deals. I'm not sure if any of them would get a new 'letter' but they know like EE that people tend to stay on a good deal until it can be bettered

I got it for £12 and also 4GB hotspot.

Advisor messed up but they honoured the deal as it was meant to be £15 like yours.

Yeah 200mins are plenty for me too ... Data is where its at but tbh I average 25GB.

(Incase anyone is wondering I got this deal well over a year ago, not sure what the best price is at the min)
