3-MOBILE are not trustworthy!
I do not advise people not to deal with them but to knows this fact from someone with three years experience!
PHONES
On paper everything looks the best in the market but I experienced intermittent mobile broadband signal failure join my phone and have left now to pay more elsewhere in three hope of better quality and lesso lies about " network upgrades etc". I also suffered dozens of nuisance calls for weeks from their Retention team owing me hot deals when I got a PAC code to leave...and that was a torturous process that took ages. As I told them, if only you valued and really looked after your existing customers instead of chasing new business so much you might not piss them off so much they just want to get away at all costs! Many upgrade offers are just old stock they are trying to get rid of for a fast profit...always shop around and NEVER accept what you are initially offered. That is 3-Mobile's game in a nutshell, as is apparently anything something but afterwards secretly giving less our not doing it. They rely on talking customers into submission and on their innocence and/or apathy! It is the Eastern way!
USB Broadband
Half decent service but with intermittent failure. Lost it completely for a month. Sometimes.Indian customer service may say we will put a credit on your account but thry will not...shocking liars, comes naturally, will say anything really but it rarely comes to pass, though the USB dongle people are better than the phone side.to be fair.
I agreed a deal for a laptop + MiFi yesterday but am calling back to check the entire deal & the vfull specs of the machine as I smell a rat. If so I will cancel and never deal with them again.

Your MUST take notes of everything you are told in detail and keep them all as back up for your case in future with 3-Mobile...a very tricky company indeed. I spent time in the East and know what they are like...not to be taken at face value I assure you!
Conclusion: DODGY

Purley area (south of) Three Mobile  
my story is a tale of two halfs im 12 months into my 15 gig a month contract,i spent the 1st 10 months losing signal unable to download or view video etc,in short it was a disgrace,and i suspect underhanded play to prevent customers using there full allowance,however in the last two months i have had decent service signal and download speeds my sis works for ofcom and has asked me for info,so i will wait and do a proper review in 6 more months to be fair to 3 they do seem to have rectified alot of probs.but you cant advertise 15gig then not have the facilities in place to allow the customer to use it.myself kids and partner are all 3 payasugo phone customers,7 in total spending roughly 350 a month,if 1 goes we all go.

Plymouth Three Mobile  
I have rigged up a homemade antenna on the roof to get the most signal - 4/5 bars - and this mobile internet is still SLOW. During the weekend and after 5ish on weekdays, it gets noticeably worse, which means pretty awful. It is certainly better than having no internet at all, but I don't see this as being an alternative to proper BB. The CS is fine, but they obviously can't do anything about this. They say that they are doing a signal upgrade sometime next year, but who knows?

Hackney Three Mobile  
Absolutely unreliable service. Unable to Skype or video conferencing. Misleading information before signing contract. Costumer service advised me to monitor my internet speed and tried to convince me that there is no problem with traffic volume when all my tests shown that service is grossly oversubscribed. Summarized : one horror story in 10 years of using internet.

WELLINGBOROUGH Three Mobile  
I have a deal with a speed of up to 3.6mbs, but through testing the speed from different speed test sites, I have an average of 0.5 mbs, with a low of 0.36mbs and a high (occasionally) of 0.8mbs. I am well aware that the speed will depend on how many subscribers are on line at one time, but would have thought that the ISP would have upgaded their service to cope with this, and fulfill their obligations of providing somewhere near the speeds promised.
