Re: Three doubles price of unlimited data


[re: jchamier] [link to this post]
 
I'm okay with that. I have 4GB Tethering but it's the bump from £15-£23 for my 200 mins and unlimited phone data frown

The One plan was £17/month according to the BBC article, I know they have a £15/month option for unlimited data, so what is the fuss over?


Some of the outrage is over the sudden notification, on relatively short notice, that they'll be doubling your bill unless you act otherwise.

They could have given a longer notice period, moved you to a plan that suits your actual usage instead of the most expensive one, etc.

The timing is poor too. 3's 4G network is not very good, even if you have 800MHz 4G in your area, you need one of a handful of phones to have any chance of using it (and the priorities are set such that you won't go onto it if you can get any 3G signal at all). They should beef up the network and then announce a price rise. But doing it this way is just going to drive more people away

4G seems to work well here (well the speed anyway not the coverage) even 3G is normally ok/good

i am on a £25 The One Plan (with a rolling monthly £5 and £2 discount so £18 paying) so be interesting when i get my letter (20GB tops as i tend to forget to turn ON wifi as its norm that fast i forget that i not got wifi on)

i thought i would of lost my plan last year when the contract ran out,, not that i abuse it at all 99% of my stuff is mobile use(twitch/youtube+minor data things)

for me if they did drop the One plan they be losing £3 a month as i would just get the AYCE data (200 talk) plan for £15 a month (or lose me completely it's their choice) as the second phone i have is for backup/fun phone, tethering is not important (nor does my phone report it any way)

yes but they only traffic shape the data (don't count it towards your tethering limit if you have one, example PAYG AYCE) if the phone reports it to three they can 100% log that data use as tethering and block it or set it to your tethering data allowance (a lot of people who are on AYCE on PAYG are unaware they not allowed to tether, but seem fine with lowest speed priority

Can't you use WiFi broadband instead of 3G/4G for this high usage?

Funny ttb speedtest in your sig tongue.

As for having 80/20 FTTC and 70GB tethering, I can only conclude you are being humorous wink.

The indispensable man or woman passes from the scene, and what happens next is more or less the same thing as was happening before.

EE offers it, you just have to pay for it.

Three's package wasnt viable, in every big city I have used it in, its congested to very extreme levels.
