Is anyone else’s Three speeds bad these days. It used to be 15mbps most of the time and now for the past few days it is 95kbps.Towers are fine.Keep in mind these are 4g speeds.

Mine is terrible. I have to use 3G because 4G is so bad and 3G isn’t great. It’s been like that for months for me. I keep hoping that it will improve.
Three is cheating its customers now, blatantly !

Yeah 3G is 3mbps which is enough to cure my boredom thanks for the tip perhaps you could try other providers only went with it as it has roaming in America
Glad it worked. 😃 I’m definitely thinking of trying other providers. Poor speeds seem to be an ongoing problem with Three.

Yeah the only good things are the prices voxi seems good at the moment 6gb and unlimited social data for £10
Just did a speed test and it's currently 12Mbps at 7pm in the evening. It may be a local issue rather than a national one.

9pm 15mbps I think taking the sim out did the trick and changing the apn settings and back

Haven't had a problem in years, it depends where you are

It's not just a local problem. I used 3 for years, but it wasn't working well in some of the areas we go to, and sometimes in city centres we got no data at all. So we jumped ship to Sky - my daughter is still with 3 but where she was staying the last year, you frequently couldn't make voice calls either. So once her contract is up next year, she'll probably be moved elsewhere too (I pay the bill....)

I’ve heard that if you have an existing sky contract you get a lower price on the other sim

I certainly didn't when we took a second sim. But when I look next year, I'll certainly ask.

Only reason I didn’t go with sky was because of the speeds they limit to 18/6 and in other areas on three I get 90/35

Fair enough - but when I was getting 0 down and no way of checking up, it's fine. I'm also not one for social media or watching media while out and about, so as long as I can see emails, hangouts, and use loyalty apps, I'm generally fine.
