GPRS Class 12 (4+1/3+2/2+3/1+4 slots), 32 - 48 kbps
EDGE Class 12
Speed HSDPA, 21 Mbps; HSUPA, 5.76 Mbps

Im on three already get about 10 meg give or take so with the DC should get about 20ish

According to the link below the Galaxy 3S is compatible with dual-channel HSPA 42 Mbps speed.

The S3 will let you surf the Net and stream music and video while you're out and about at up to 42Mbps, the speediest type of dual-channel HSPA currently available here in the UK.

We should point out that 42Mbps is a theoretical maximum. Actual speeds will depend on where you are and the strength of the signal.

http://crave.cnet.co.uk/mobiles/samsung-galaxy-s3-ha...

I would have thought a low priced contract would have been the best way to spread the cost. The Galaxy S3 price to buy SIM free is £350

Hmm i read that the only S3 the offer the DC was the 4G one which most uk stores (except now EE) dont stock they usually have the 21meg one, But ill take a trip to my local three shop Monday and have a look they have a working test phone.

If it dose turn out to be the 42meg ill get that as i really do like the phone, As for the second contract i dont really have the option even if i wanted to my credit rating is screwed iive just got everything payed off and now just starting to slowly build it back up, My current contracts in a mates name im hoping by the time it expires ill be ok to get one in my own again he probably would get me one as as long as it gets paid hes happy but i dont want to be putting on him lol.

also can anyone with a S3 on three confirm this or not

Thanks again for reply

Ash

Second Edit

Just found out thishas it nice camera too although i think the S3 in general is a better phone and there both about the same price brackets

I read dual-channel HSPA 42 Mbps speed is make believe 4G. The true 4G is capable of up to 100Mbps for surfing the Web and up to 1Gbps speed for local wireless access.

http://crave.cnet.co.uk/mobiles/wimax-and-lte-told-y...

I noted the Galaxy S3 is LTE, or Long-Term Evolution (regional) compatible.

I know it not 4G nor did i think it was but the normal S3 only works with 21meg ive looked into it now u need the LTE one to even support DC-HSPA+ 42meg as well as LTE smile and thats defo out of my price range think for the price im going to get a HTC VELOCITY 4G

FWIW I got a SIM-free SIII and had my O2 SIM cut down to fit. When out and about the indicator on the screen varies between 3G, H and H+.

I did some speed tests a while ago which were impressive, but I foget the exact results. I'll see if I can do some later. Signal at home is dodgy for H+.

If you can wait a few weeks I think Google's LG Nexus 4 supports HSPA+. £239 for 8GB or £279 for 16GB. No LTE but for that price you can't complain =D. Looks like a very nice phone. Swapping my 4S for one.
