Three has been offering all you can eat data for a long time now, and we have now put it on everything from pay and go, sim or 24month contracts, starting as cheap as 13 pound (sim100 + AYCE) on top of that we also have our own massive 3g network, no piggy backing off another company. our network has came leaps and bounds in the past 4 year.
Their data speeeds are hideously slow when you are lucky enough for them to work at all!!
heyy, 30 Jan 2012ur uneducated, BBM is one of the lowest data usage services going, my aerage data usage on my ... moreyou pay an extra £5 which goes to blackberry it doesnt matter if you only use a small amount of data or not its the service you pay for
jhr774, 30 Jan 2012You work in the mobile industry and you don't know why the bold is priced at a higher tariff? ... moreur uneducated, BBM is one of the lowest data usage services going, my aerage data usage on my BB is 90mb a month so makes no difference to tariff cost. so pipe down jhr774, u basically no nothing

In the town centre where I live (in UK)I can get perfect signal with every other network indoors, but with 3 I'm lucky to get it outside.
Anonymous, 30 Jan 2012T-mobile, for a start, have both 2G and 3G capabilites. No 3G coverage? No Three. Saying that ... moreGuess I should take my comment back about T-Mobile being inferior as Three/T-Mobile share, so both piggy back and get access to HSPA+, I think my local mast is T-Mobile because it's only HSDPA.
Anyways 2G is usually only needed in poor areas, I have no business there.
Probably because they don't expect the Bold to sell as well, S2 is less of a risk.
Source? According to wiki, they still share and people have reported HSPA+ on their T-Mobile handsets (T-Mobile doesn't have HSPA+, only Three).
As mentioned 3 has offered unlimited mobile internet for quite a while now. However you can also get it on giffgaff pay as you go by buying a £10 goody bag each month. One other point - 3 and T-Mobile should have the same 3g coverage in most areas as they share the same 3g network, set up under mbnl.
Three provides The One Plan which consist of the following:
2000 minutes any network
5000 3 To 3 Calling minutes
All you can eat data ( Unrestricted - no fair usage policy )
all this for just £25 a month

Anonymous, 30 Jan 2012Hmm, under the MBNL system T-Orange customers might have access to Three's HSPA+ masts.This has stopped, Three no longer share there masts with Orange or T-Mobile.
Anonymous, 30 Jan 2012First? Three has had one for ages...
And T-Mobiles network is inferior, can't see this last... moreT-mobile, for a start, have both 2G and 3G capabilites. No 3G coverage? No Three. Saying that T-Mobile have an inferior network when Three only piggyback on part of that network - not all - is quite contradicting.
Secondly, working in the mobile phone industry in a business environment I find it ridiculous that the Galaxy S 2 is free on the lower tariff and the Bold 9900 requires a higher line rental - I can categorically say that the Bold does not hold a higher value than the SGS2.
I am not seeing the point in the highest variant of this tariff. If the second highest price offers no caps on minute usage, what's the advantage of paying more than that? Seems like a good idea that's been horribly implemented.
TO be open over here Yes you are right that the one plan offers all you can eat data...but not just that all the customers starting from the entry level phones with entry level packages have an option of getting all you can eat internet data on mobile for an additional 3 pounds...and if you are signing up for a new contract the offer with all you can eat on mobile starts at 16 pds for new contracts ...
