    I have been using three for years we had three phones and a mobile broadband dongle then a Huawei router , problems started when 4G rolled out everything became unreliable, not so bad on phones butemail through router became unreliable as streaming video has become more widely used the router situation is awful. however setting it to 3G does give consistent 4mbit down and 6 up so Netflix etc works ok , the real issue is customer service or lack of it I have now got rid of the phones and moved to different networks the router SIM has 9 months to go but I'll move to another providor , they clearly rate shape their network otherwise how can you have a full signal and no data throuput !

    I have joined 3G home broadband almost two years now and their service has never worked properly. I have asked them to terminate that contract for almost two years and they kept telling me they need to do troubleshooting each time I called. Their broadband has been extremely slow and in most cases did not work at all. I have told them since you cannot provide me with the service promised to terminate the contract and they never did.

    Now they left me without no choice but stop paying them. Now they are sending us letters to pay the bill or they will send us to court. I'm refusing to pay for a service that has never worked or provided. They have kept us by force for almost to years and without broadband, in-fact I have to use my phone internet to do my work and has costed me even more money.

    joined 3 several years ago and was initially reasonably happy with the mobile broadband service which l utilised at work. Moved jobs recently and decided to quit 3 as the coverage poor in the Peak District. That's when the hassle began. l contacted 3 via the net to cancel what had become a simple rolling monthly contract and waited for a final bill that failed to arrive. lnstead l received a letter from a debt collection agency stating that my account was in arrears and that my credit rating would be ruined if payment was not made. A few days later a bill from 3 appeared which l paid, but l still find myself pursued by the debt collectors while attempting to resolve the issue directly with 3 who seem utterly clueless. my advice is to steer well clear of 3.

    Moved in a studio flat on the 19 of February 2021, after searching on the net for a quick easy to handle broadband provider I decided to go for Three 3 mifi mobile broadband. Down load speed between 6.9 Mbps up to 18 Mbpps (late night) 2 devices connected, I am pretty satisfied with the service. And it is the best cost effective solution on the market for an unlimited download mobile broadband 2 years contract.

    Absolute piece of s... Impossible to use, the connection disappears for no reason. In the last hour, I had to reconnect maybe 30times.

    Terrible. Was sold a 5G connection to my address but when I was experiencing below expected speeds checked the Three website to be told that 5G was not available in my area. When coming to cancel the contract I had to enter my details 3 separate times only to be cut off mid conversation with the person who was meant to be helping me cancel my contract. 0/10, Would never use Three again.

    7 days after purchase Download speed 11.4 MBPS upload 4.9, handling a laptop and 2 mobiles connecting at the same time with no issues at all. Pretty happy very easy set up you are online in no time after unboxing. No hassle, It is a small portable device highly recommended.

    If there were 0 stars, that would be my rating for Three. Their broadband speed is at modem level for most of the day, the customer service provides no help at all but pesters you with standard blah blah blah. They wouldn't even let you out of your contract w/o cancellation fees, even when they're clearly not able to fulfill their part of the contract. If you want so spare yourself a whole lotta trouble, do stay away from this company. They are an embarrassment in every aspect of their doing.

    Please stay away from Three. Shocking speed. Not able to watch a Facebook Watch video without disruptions. Sucked into a 2-year contract.
