Its not a competition, while you're maxing out other users of that mast will likely be affected.

People doing that sort of thing is why Three eventually closed the One Plan. Mobile data isn't the same as fixed line, and it affects all the other people on the mast. If Three determine this is problematic to the network, they could slow you down, or at worst cancel your contract.

Use what you need, but don't use it stupidly when you don't need. Posting about "maxing out" a service that is cheaper than pretty much all fixed line, is usually unwise.

Been doing this since 2018 Dec not one word from three about this usage....if they decide to boot me off in the future I have smarty unlimited £18 EE unlimited £25 o2 unlimited and even vodafone 5G max plan plenty offers these days.....

I know people around my area are using their cheap £10 3 sim deal powering up their office and restaurant wifi with a mesh setup....saving thousands of pounds each year from installing fibre....

Trust me, Three will slowly deprioritise your area for repairs and upgrades, thus making the local area a hole for poor performance so you leave.

If you use Smarty, you'll get the same issues as it's a virtual operator using Three.

Don't be greedy and ruin it for everyone else.

Let's not be silly. Using 10TB is the well within the top 1% of UK top consumer users (and far more likely to be in the 0.1% of users, and that's for wired connections. 10TB over mobile connections will make you one of Three's highest users in the country. 10TB is the equivalent of 14.1GB per hour, 24 hours per day, every day, or the equivalent of 31.5Mb/sec all the time (based on 30.1 day month)

The company I work for has over 50,000 connections all sharing 12TB per month (which we don't use up)!

I dont agree with wasteful use of bandwidth but dont think the average employee data consumption can be compared to home/personal use. I run a small WISP and we regularly see single households hitting 2TB in a month.

Not saying it's directly comparable, what I was illustrating was the significance of how much data 10TB actually is over 4G (and presumably from one cell site!). The average data use per Three customer is around 9-10GB per month. 10TB via 4G is absolute madness, and more fool Three for not booting this person off. Just this one person could be taking up resources (from the sounds of it for almost 24 hours per day) and degrading the service for everyone else connected on the same bands on that cell.

I'm sure customers on your network do use 2TB, however I bet it's not a massive percentage of them and even if they are 10TB is still a five fold increase to this so significantly more. Presumably you will be selling your service as a broadband connection too. Over a shared medium like Three's 4G using this amount of data you have to be gobbling up the majority of available capacity available for everyone.

I thought Three had introduced an FUP, but I can't find it, I know that EE is 600 GB, and O2 is 650GB, and Vodafone doesn't have one.

I suspect Three will probably introduce one, based on this user alone!

Well you won't have a meter if you are on the old style billing, so despite the constant water noise, nobody will know how much.

I expect the local water company will turn up in a week or so trying to locate the leak.

Reminds me of Del Boy and the Peckham Spring smile. Cannot believe it’s been 28 years. Some rateable value customers in certain areas could have a meter as they are/were allowed to return if the meter didn’t save money.

We swapped to a metered water supply decades ago. With a three-bedroom house with a D-level rateable value and just the two of us it made sense. It makes even more sense as my wife has since died.

I could still revert to unmetered if I wished. Perhaps if I suddenly acquired a harem, which would only occur if I became as rich as Sir Philip Green! At which juncture the water costs would be of little consequence.

It is only when the ownership of the house changes that the option to swap back is removed.

If the person that's using that amount of data is in a rural area, or small town, there will degraded coverage for the whole Three user base in that location, especially if they've only limited fibre links to the mast.

Personally remember getting advised that hitting 1TB in a month, 3 months running and Three have policy in place to remove you from the network. I'm guessing that on this occasion they've either not felt the need to restrict service or haven't actually bothered to do so.

Like it's been previously said, with one user hogging that amount of bandwidth and actually breaking the TOS for Three, as we all know the real reason for having uTorrent running 24/7 will end them in a spot of bother at some point. I'd imagine they'll let them do it for 6 months and then smack them with a cease and desist letter.

Also 4G doesn't give the bandwidth to watch Disney+ in 4K, plus all the other stuff the OP claims to be doing at once. The fastest I ever had out of a Three 4G connection was in the Birmingham area, topping out at 50Mbps, and even then the connection could handle more than 2 devices doing something at any one time.

That was someone's interpretation of an interview by Mark Jackson with the CEO or equivalent of Three, some time after they introduced the totally unlimited products on 4G/5G, but before February 2020. This post expands on it.

Basically it comes to them saying that above 1TB it could be thought that commercial use was involved, which is not permitted on the Home products. (Of course, we don't know what products the OP is on or at what price).

The Ts & Cs to be found on this page are relevant.

Three's capacity management and fair use seem about as much use as absolute sovereignty.

It would be breathtakingly inept if they didn't know who their heaviest users were and how much they are using.

They keep it quiet they could even store metadata on what the customer is doing, so if they're downloading the same thing repetitively boot them, if they're downloaded copyright material boot them.

Plenty of avenues for Three to take, though they do involve admitting how much they know about the subscribers' traffic patterns.

None of that makes sense. Starting with what seems to be a fictional SIM deal and ending with an imaginary savings figure.

Water meters do indeed make sense for most people. I was paying £48 in my last band B house, yet in my current band D house I only pay £35. I could have changed to a meter in my previous house but I liked the idea that I could use what I wanted, especially in summer for the kids.

However, your point about returning to unmetered is not necessarily true as it totally depends on your water supplier. For example in Yorkshire the grace period is 2 years, in other areas it’s only 12 months. Within Yorkshire the property will also revert to a meter upon the transfer of ownership of the property even if the owner chose to stay on RV. In some areas you cannot revert at all, but if you kick off enough you might get the “assessed” charges applied, which are usually cheaper than metered for heavy users.

[re: Newbie789] [link to this post]
 
This is just sad. I use Three 5G on my ZTE MC801 and with speeds of 450/60 and always end up using about 1TB a month (in my old house, I could get 800/120 using the same setup - I see the MC801 has a 10Gig ethernet but I'm yet to see that over 5G, maybe in the future lol). You must have been the user who recently caused my local mast to be down for three days.

You do know that most Three masts are on a 1gbps VM link and upgraded 5G masts are on a 10gbps VM link. Saturating the connection will only cause issues for other users and in the terms and conditions - you'll find if they expect your usage to be used for commercial purposes, you're gonna be booted onto a business plan or off the network.

I'm happy that Three hasn't capped users but people like yourself make me want Three to do so. No other unlimited network provider offers a non-capped plan, you'll see that EE is a measly 600GB (used to be 1TB), unless you go to EE Business at £32/mo. O2 is capped at 600GB. Vodafone isn't capped but their 5G coverage is pretty lackluster round here and Smarty is also 1TB limited.

I wouldn't be surprised if increased people jump ship on unlimited data plans congesting Three's backhaul - they should put a FUP for this. I know most town centres - Three's network is barely capable of getting 1Mbps on a full signal 4G mast.

I'm quite lucky to be able to get FTTP from BT and Hyperoptic and I am also in a VM cabled area - but Three's 5G is great value, £5/mo after cashback - what's not to love. 500Mbps from the likes of BT/VM/Hyperoptic is all over £40/mo. Obviously I've had to purchase the ZTE router from Germany for £180 - but I expect to stay with Three as it's pretty decent.

10TB via 4G is absolute madness, and more fool Three for not booting this person off. Just this one person could be taking up resources (from the sounds of it for almost 24 hours per day) and degrading the service for everyone else connected on the same bands on that cell.


Completely agree, Three really should be addressing behavior like this.

Assuming the opening poster isn't trolling, which could be likely - perhaps Three decide to boot people based on users in the areas.

If they're the only user in the area of any note, then perhaps Three's traffic management system (which I assume if it were any good would monitor at the cell/sector level), doesn't flag it or care until others start joining in the area and get abysmal performance.

Also, who is the say Three don't shape peoples connections - so if other users do start joining on the OP's sector, he's probably at the lowest end of the IP priortisation list.

Vodafone do have a cap on their unlimited (soft/hard doesn't matter its there), it was originally 3TB but since has been increased to 9TB since I hit the cap when they first brought out their unlimited sim.

They basically cut the link when it hit 3TB, so I'd technically call that a hard cap not a soft cap lol, but that was were the complaint was for me... I don't always use that much... but just generally depends on the month.

I'm right next to a football stadium so I'm hooked off the 4G there and get about 30 up and 200 down - i push all my streaming and downloads of this 4G and the Vodafone fixed line is just purely for gaming over an Sophos XG firewall smile
