Reasons to choose Three.

Still can't decide which network?

Here's why you should choose Three.

We believe it's time to tackle the big things that other networks won't. The things that will make mobile fairer, squarer, better.

So we've ripped up the rule book and introduced lots of stuff you may not even know about. Here's what you can expect with Three:

All 0800 calls are free on our new contract plans.
Call all 0800 numbers for free, and 084 and 087 numbers for up to only 5p a minute. All on our new 24 month contract plans.
Enjoy 4G at no extra cost.
We think you should enjoy the wonders of 4G, with no catches — which is why we're making it available to all at no extra cost. If you have a 4G device and you're in a 4G area, switching is easy — all you need is a software update.
Use your phone abroad at no extra cost.
We're tackling roaming rates because we just don't think they're fair. So we've introduced Feel At Home in 16 destinations — with more to come. It lets you use your allowance to call and text the UK and use data just as you would at home, without paying a penny more.
Low Pay As You Go rates that never expire.
We don't want you to have to spend more than you need on things like bundles and extras. So our Standard Pay As You Go rates are considerably lower than our competitors' and better yet, they don't expire after 30 days.
Test drive devices in-store before you buy.
All our stores have live devices, letting you try out the ones you're interested in before making your mind up.
Your Three phone, unlocked.
Our phones are now sold unlocked. And if you have an older device that's locked to Three, bring it in and we'll unlock it for free.
Your life back with Three Rescue.
Your device is your lifeline. So if you choose to take our Three Rescue insurance, we'll be there to help you get back up and running as quickly as possible.
