This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

Deal was previously posted however it was reduced to 100gb limit. It has now returned to unlimited. Ispreview.com highlight that in the small print it's listed as 100gb with free unlimited 'add on'. They also state that the Three pr gurus clearly stated it is unlimited. A great deal for myself as my fixed line broadband maxes out at 1mb!

You can buy the £22 12 month sim and put it into a 4G router and have calls and texts included, the Huawei modems are discussed on the board a lot, B525 and above have Mimo tech the Three B311 offer hasn’t FULL mimo or mimo SMA connectors for any kind of antenna and a thus better multiple band signal & speeds. Signal doesn’t mean good speeds alone, Mimo 4x4 does. The B525 is 2x2 Mimo, try find one with 4x4 for better speeds (like my B612).

B311 is Download 150/ Upload 50Mb/s Category 4 device - old old tech with 2x2 Mimo, (sister Three Ireland ended B3xx National Broadband Network gov contract, Three Ireland now use B525)

I’ve got a Huawei B612 and it performs brilliantly & I’m in a area surrounded by thousands of uni students all on Three unlimited plans...internet to go basically.

Defo recommend order online with 14 days return to test a Three sim. You can do the same with Amazon on a Huawei B525 or above.

Is that Huwai?


No, that's a Chinese copy, this one is Huawei.

I have had this for a few months now. Definitely is unlimited, getting between 80 and 100mb download speeds so decent.

I’m with Three but have the unlimited data sim deal. Now it’s unlimited tethering I just use my phone for connecting everything to the net.

My 3 signal is as good as my EE Home broadbad, so may be worth looking at when my current deal ends or I might use the info to get a discount from EE thanks for posting

Nope.

Suppose you could cancel and go again.

Considering it. Only ordered late last night. My only concern is the superfluous credit check...
NOTE: For the £22 deal, you have to sign up for TWO years !!! Do they even give an indication of what speed you get? It could be slower than basic broadband for all we know!!!

Not ideal but in my position it's all I can do. I priced 4g broadband and EE were coming in at £50pm for 200gb, scandalous. As mentioned in the description I tried fixed line (new house) and I can only get 1mb. I'll take 2 years of unlimited data!

Well pop a 3 sim into a phone and do speed test
We use this, ditched hardwired as never used house phone and we get better speeds for lesser cost. Can not fault it.
3 signal rubbish for me still a good deal for those who can still get good speeds
Yeah I got a Three SIM and got 10mb/s, it'll do for me!
Currently on a deal with virgin 50mbs...or I'd jump ship in a heartbeat, my Three phone is faster on download, and 6 times faster on upload.... and you know what the bill will be

77mbs down
24mbs up THREE

54MBS down
3 mbs up VIRGIN CABLE

Wow.. I only get up to 2-3mb/s if I'm lucky. Usually it stays around the 300-600kb/s when I'm tethering lol

Anyone know if this would be more better then using the phone to tether?

Would be interested if anyone who uses this and also uses their phone to tether and let me know if there is a big difference. Much appreciated 😁😁

Not really much difference but I have an ethernet splitter box attached to it so I can have ethernet cable run to the PC, Hive heating hub and Phillips hue hub. If you don't need anything cabled in then in the short term I would just stick with the phone. However if this is going to replace your home broadband then just go for the hub it will be better.

A router always performs better than a mobile, even better with a external antenna, tethering mobiles other than occasionally causes heat damage, mobiles slowly die off, you have heat from pulling signal and then hotspotting creating Wi-fi heat. Tether as little as possible. Android seems to be really bad at it, they die much much quicker than iPhones in my experience.

It’s more likely to affect the battery through heavy use. This I have changed and did so December last year before Apple raised the prices of battery replacement. Made a big difference to performance to be fair.

I would think its more better rather than less better.

Your phone is performing multiple tasks whereas the router is dedicated and will have more bandwidth

That's true... however I don't want to commit to a 2 year contract unless I'm getting fibre optic. Can't get it where I am at the moment and not sure when I'm moving to my new place. Could be weeks or years. Lol
Don't forget you would get a 14 day cooling off period to test it.
Not much good for your new address if your not there yet.
I'd love to ditch the phone line but my street was built on an active worm hole leading to the 1800's where no phone signal exists I'm tempted to try it in the loft but i know im lazy and wont bother lol

Three signal just terrible round here I was with them and sacked them as I couldn't make it receive calls never mind using internet and im still in contract with vodafone for fibre ATM and there's is best signal for network so might swap to them when it runs out if they got a deal like they have had as of late
Very very interesting. But I have questions!

I have slow fixed line broadband (<10Mb).
I have fast Vodafone 4G (around 40Mb) but their version of this deal is much more expensive.
According to the Three coverage checker, I'm on the edge of a no-service area, so I'm not sure what speed I might get. So to test this properly, I would need a 4G antenna that I could mount at the top of the telegraph pole (isn't it weird that we still call them that!) that's *right* next to my house.
The Three/Huawei B311 says "1 SMA external antenna optional" so I presume that I can plug in an external antenna.
I presume that the Huawei B525 also accepts an external antenna.

Can anyone tell me if this is the sort of thing I need?:
amazon.co.uk/Poy…FPS
It comes with two cables so the router would need two (SMA?) sockets.

And where is the best place to look for more info on this topic? AVForums?

Heated.
Perfect deal for myself. Cancelled my obsolete phone line and 800kb download Internet to get 60mb 4G for half the price I'm currently paying. The data restrictions always put me off 4g routers before so this is fantastic

Thanks so much for posting

Order a Three SIM and check the speeds? That's what I did. Free from the website.
