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.

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.

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.

@jhr

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.

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 ...

Hmm, under the MBNL system T-Orange customers might have access to Three's HSPA+ masts.
