    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.
    With Feel At Home wave goodbye to the worry of roaming charges.
    Feel At Home lets you use your allowance to call and text the UK and use your data just like you would at home and it won't cost a penny more. You can already use it in 11 destinations: USA, Australia, Republic of Ireland, Austria, Italy, Denmark, Sweden, Sri Lanka, Indonesia, Macau and Hong Kong — with more destinations to come.
    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.
    No nasty Pay Monthly price hikes.
    You agree to pay us a set amount each month so you don't expect it to change. That's why we won't put your price up anytime through our agreement, unlike other networks. It's only fair.
    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.
    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.


    We know that if you are thinking about joining our Network that coverage and speed is important to you.

    We have more than 97% coverage for calls, texts and mobile internet. Use our coverage checker to see our coverage in your area.

    What to expect on your first bill.

    Your first bill will be available for you to view in 7-10 days. About 19 days later we'll take this payment by Direct Debit, so please ensure you have sufficient cleared funds in your bank account at this time. The bills for your new agreement with Three must be paid on time; failing to do this may have a negative impact on your credit rating. You can keep track of your usage and bills by going to My3 on your mobile or at Three.co.uk/my3.

    The first bill you'll receive from us will be higher than your usual monthly charge as we charge you for a month and up to 8 days. Find out more at Three.co.uk/bills.
