3p per minute, 2p per message, 1p per MB. Simple as that. Launching tomorrow.

A PAYG tariff according to the thread in HUKD.

Sounds too good to be true.

It's true.

Top up as much as you want then just pay the credit every time you use a call/text/mb.

You can still buy bundles though.

Ovivo is still a better deal.

But Three is obviously a better PAYG network.

2p per text
1p per mb data.

Some people are going to get caught out by the data. 1p per mb sounds great, but download 3,000mb (3gb-ish) in one month, which is very easy in this media driven age, and it'll cost 30.00.

I see a lot of young phone users being suprised...or should I say, their parents.

If anyone wants to download 3gb they should be on a data plan or bundle, pure and simple. A 30 surprise is not going to break the bank though is it, unlike some of the bills people have got from other networks! On a busy month people may get a big bill, unless you download lots it would be more like 5-10.

As it's PAYG, there's no danger of running up a huge bill or any unexpected charges; you can only use what you've already paid for.

Does the free 150mb allowance with every top up still apply?

My sister saw it advertised and is thinking of switching!

Yes it does according to the website.

Amazing prices, I just tested it on my phone.

pay as you go doesn't allow tethering.

You can sign up to the one plan sim only for 15 per month which gives 2,000 mins, 5000 texts, 5000 3 to 3 mins, unlimited data including tethering.

Call the sales team to get that deal if you want tethering

Damn. I don't want a monthly deal I want true pay as you go data. I only need it occasionally and just want to pay for what I actually use. Why will no provider give this? Vodafone used to years ago but have since stopped.

When i se it i will beleive it.
Im currently on a three sim only 1 month 15 sim only deal 9 that hasnt been available for quite some time ) , and for my 15 i get:

200 minutes
500 texts
and 2GB of data.
The reason why im still on that old deal is the 2GB of data ( internet max) allows tethering, and it was originally sold to me as the ability to use your phone as an internet modem to connect a laptop when out and about.

Ive just had a quick look here http://store.three.co.uk/view/search...an=PAY_MONTHLY and there is no sign of this new deal there.

If they are charging by the megabyte, I don't see why they wouldn't allow tethering.

But keep an eye on the other networks, and especially the MVNOs like Tesco and Lebara. They are going to lose a lot of custom unless they cut prices....

That's because its PAYG and your looking at Pay Monthly.
