Sensible??

£35 a month seems pretty sensible.

When EE offer a sensible unlimited package and signal in my area.

Three's price for unlimited is probably unsustainable, and could be a reason why many people are posting problems.

Three could easily do what they have done (twice?) before, and cancel plans and force people off them. They are the only UK network whom have done this. They are also, currently, the only network to force/require an upgrade at the end of a min-term period.

Three are behaving very oddly recently.

If a business decides on a strategic policy then cascades the policy down with performance reviews and maybe bonuses hanging on the achievement of targets within that strategic policy you quite often get inappropriate management behaviours to hit the target at the expense of the paying customer.

Force an upgrade at the end of min-term just to stay with them? Sounds like a way of behaving similar to Virgin Media.

If the lacklustre level of performance from their over-subscribed 4G service and none existent customer service isn't enough to put people off even stopping with them, increasing the monthly price to stay with them certainly will.

Who do they expect WILL stay with them exactly?

Some very high ranking people resigned from Three earlier in the year, and commentator think there may be some push from the owners for something. Maybe increased ARPU, or maybe to increase total customer numbers, given Three have the lowest of the 4 UK physical networks.

Those whom like paying rock bottom prices, e.g. a friend of mine is on SIM only 8GB of data for £8 with unlimited talk, text and WiFi calling. None of the others majors compete at this very low price.

All networks go through pain points, O2 has had quite a few, and it seems this year is Three’s turn.

There are reports the Samsung hardware that makes up the bulk of the 4G network has not worked out, not performed, and Three’s plan was to replace with Huawei 4G, so they could add Huawei 5G.

The UK Government’s decision recently has hurt that plan in a big way.

Can you link me to the EE unlimited mobile broadband deal? I've looked monthly as I would LOVE to switch, but I never see an unlimited plan.

The £35 unlimited plan appears under the 'phone sims' section. However there's nothing stopping you putting the sim in a router and purely using it for data:

Oh nice! Thank you for taking the time to share.

I always thought they detected this kind of use. I’ll grab a sim today then.

Networks can no longer discriminate on how you use your data but of course there will still be some exceptions in the t&cs, such as not using the data in a business environment where you could potentially use 100’s of TBs a month in 5G data - that really would be taking the pee.
