Company you can recommend to your worst enemy - three mobile customer service is just awful. I was calling 6x about particular problem before they fixed it.
Other thing Three mobile data signal is very poor. Customer service says you need to contact department about, they will check why signal is bad and will try to sort it out. When connected that department has excuse - your phone is faulty (in our case 7 phones have the same problem with signal). We have situation when 9 people are sitting in one room (iphone 4s, iphone 6, samsung s4, s5, s5, s6, note2 on three mobile; iphone 4 and samsung s5 on other networks). Three mobile's signal is coming and going on all phones - one minute it is here, then dissappears, then again appears, it is jumping between H, H+ and 4G, and it shows full bars, but you can't connect. On all phones the same. Absolutely helpless. Other networks permanently have signal. We are located in London. Here is NO CHANCES to get any help from three mobile customer service. But three mobile will charge you for nonexistent signal properly, 'because you signed contract with us'. For them it is one side contract, they are not obligate to provide service you were expecting when chose to get their simcard. And after that they are shameless enough to try sell you a new contract. Just try to avoid this company!

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.

Three signal coverage map shows very good 4G indoor & outdoor coverage at my post code. But in reality, indoor coverage is too bad. 1 bar maximum and no Signals as well. Have reported to three so many times but nothing came out. Won't buy it again!!! 1 star service.

Bristol Three Mobile  
I wouldn't wish threes broadband on my worst enemy

The only reason I havent cancelled it yet is because I had to pay £49 upfront. From day 1 I havent been receiving the service I pay for. Everytime I ring them they make some excuse about the service and that it will be better within 24 hours. I've had this since the first day turning it on and am still having it 2 months later. It disconnects several times a day (it says I was connect over 30 devices to it, yet with only 1 device connected most of the time my ps4 runs at less than 5mps, and thats on the rare occasion the internet is actually connecting to the router).

Bare in mind I live in the city centre, a place famous for good internet connection; yet nowhere in the house can I get more than half the way up the 'best connection point's. Even on window sills there is NO connection. Oh and btw being half way up is monumental as a vast majority of the time it is at about 10% up the bar...

If I was paying £10 a month I would still not be getting the service I paid for and I would cancel.

Before this I was with EE who's basic internet was a minimum guaranteed of 6mps (threes is 20mps I believe) and yet I was getting more consistent service with them.

I've regretted joining three since the day I started (I didnt cancel in the 14 day cancellation period because of the promises of it getting better, but it never has).

The customer service (the scripts they are given to read are fine and calming) but they have no idea what they are doing or saying and cant sympathize with you because they are ALL in Asia...

Absolutely disgusted with my experience within 3, I would rather catch coronavirus than have to see out the rest of my contract paying over £30 a month
Derby Three Mobile  
Not happy,and not a leg to stand on as going mobile home internet doesnt have a minimum speed promise, only 3 months into an 18month contract and i cant count amount of times i have taken sim out of Huawei router, reboot run a speed test and in evenings when im home from work between 6pm to 11pm my average download is between 1mbs to 4mbs, so forget netflix or play call of duty online, soooo much buffering and lag its pointless trying. in the 30 days try period when first into this contract i was getting roughly 20mbs download and about the same upload. Like i say now lucky to get 5mbs down and 1mb up. i Want out i dont want offers or money off, this was a really stupid choice thinking this would replace a landline internet service. Reminds me the days of dial up the time it takes to load pages, and buffering on youtube its like ive gone back 15 years! Just need to find out how much this crap gonna cost me to get out of contract?

We used a 3 Mi-Fi hub while we were waiting for our permanent Internet to be installed. The signal is terrible it barely ever works but we still get huge additional charges every month as we have apparently gone over our 40gb data allowance even though it is only used about 3 days a month as it is so terrible. We asked for a cap to be put on the account so that when we hit 40gb we don't start getting charged per gb used but we still get massive charges. They've also made it really difficult to cancel. Would not recommend them.

An absolute JOKE of a company!

Where do I start? The only reason I have to use this shower of fools is purely for work purposes.

I ring to top up the broadband and am ALWAYS in a queue. It's impossible to top up on line. They even have a dedicated line for the fact that you simply CAN'T ever top up on line thus incurring overinflated call charges!

You finally get to speak to someone who tries to keep you on line for even longer by trying to pass the time of day!!

After an age you are told that it's all been completed and to simply unplug and replug the dongle and hey presto!

NOOOO ! not the case - guess what? It does NOT get connected so you have to call back AGAIN and go through the whole procedure AGAIN.

I've got wise to this so today I'd gone through this whole frustrating sage and got put through to the 'technical dept' once AGAIN............

.............

Here we go...The 'tech' was telling me how to plug and unplug the dongle - yes been going that for an hour! Next he asks me to take out sim and do a few other stupid things. At this point I asked if I was on the Ant and Dec show. My sarcasm was wasted on him but never mind!

I didn't do any of the things he said but I pretended to. Guess what after another FIVE minutes of stupid instructions the internet came on!!!! I hadn't actually done anything!!!!!!!!!!!

He couldn't believe I'd DARED to not follow his instructions!! lol

They obviously get people to keep calling and waiting until they decide to simply connect you!

WHAT AN ABSOLUTE CON
AVOID THIS COMPANY LIKE THE PLAGUE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Lancashire Three Mobile  
If you are purchasing an Apple iPad do not use a 3 sim for broadband. The iMessage does not interact with it so you cannot access the 3 App to top up or change your contract. The call centre I believe situated in India was unhelpful and were not conversant with the interoperability of Apple and 3.
If changing tariffs minimum time to wait is 48 hrs for upgrade which if you are short on data you cannot add whilst you wait.
If you use it for business then that's a nightmare.
Customer Service cannot help you with the above problem as they cannot add or change data.
So beware Cheap but cheap brings its on problems.

Gloucester Three Mobile  
AVOID THREE AT ALL COSTS!!! Customer service is appalling, called them today to cancel after 4 yrs and the first person i spoke to said i would incur a charge for cancelling early even though my contract is due up at the end of the month, second person i spoke to called me a liar as i told him i was offered a better deal with another reputable company and was told not only did this well known company supply refurbished handsets but that i would need to pay £60 to cancel early even though my plan is 35 a month. I eventually agreed to pay this amount just so i did not have to deal with this company any more. I was then passed through to another department only to be told on 5 separate attempts that i could not be located on their systems, after 45 mins, 4 different advisors i eventually was able to cancel for a fee of 59.25. I have since contacted the other company who aledgedly sell refurbished handsets to be told this is false and three have used this tactic to pressure other customers into not cancelling. DO NOT BUY FROM THREE, YOU WILL REGRET IT

Glasgow Three Mobile  
Without doubt this is the worst broadband service I have ever used. I have a 2 year contract for HomeFi with a Huawei B535 Router and after 2 months of suffering dropped connection, slow speeds and unable to connect to internet I gave up and bought a Virgin package again. If you are thinking of taking a HomeFi contract Do Not Do It. You will not be happy with the service. The customer service is appalling, unknowledgeable, unhelpful and could not care less about the customer. I live in a 4G high signal strenth area with 5 bars on the router signal connection. When it works correctly it does so at 15-20 Mbps, the trouble is it only works correctly for minutes at a time then drops the connection, fails to reconnect and then when it does reconnect it runs at 15-20 Kbps, the speed of a tortoise. Restarting the router makes no difference. Netflix spends all its time buffering after the initial connection and is unwatchable so their Go Binge promise for Netflix is a lie. Bottom line is that I have thrown away over £500 on a 2 year contract that is absolutely useless for the purpose. Please learn from my mistake. Do Not Use Three.

Wishaw Three Mobile  
I had previously been a loyal customer of three; I left them once before (on good terms) only because I found a better deal. So based on my previous good experience of Three I had no hesitation in returning to them. Sadly second time around and the service is dire. I started having problems with my mobile phone (iPhone) very early on in the contract, phone kept freezing and calls kept dropping, texts sending multiple times even though an alert popped up stating message failed to send. I phoned Three Customer Services several times on this issue within the first 12 months; each time they fobbed me off telling me I need to do a factory reset, reboot or install new software. Despite all of this the problems did not go away. My phone contract is now 1yr and 39 days which means that my 1 yr Apple warranty has lapsed but I am still within my 2 year warranty with Three (as I found out today). To rectify the issues which as mentioned have been on-going for the past year; three are now telling me that I need to take my phone to Apple and pay the £300 to have it repaired and only then will they re-imburse me under warranty if the fault is not down to damage. Yet had they dealt with the issue correctly when I first reported it my phone could have been repaired without me incurring any up front costs. My dealings with Three since returning to them has shown Three to be incompetent with poor knowledge, bad record keeping and dire customer care (each phone call taking around an hour of my time). I would not recommend Three to anyone and I will be leaving them never to return as as soon as my contract permits.

Bromley Three Mobile  
I switched from Vodafone as I was lured in by the lower monthly cost and the roaming options. I now regret this hugely as I've had countless issues - data not working at all, extremely slow internet, texts not sending, unable to use virgin media wifi on the tube, phone number not properly transferred over etc. I then had to spend HOURS on live chats/ phone hepline ( the few times it worked) and received 0 help at all! Their customer service is a COMPLETE JOKE! No one calls back when they say they will and I was given the wrong advice MANY times which was a total waste of my time. Rather than help me, 3 customer service asked me the same questions OVER AND OVER again ( cause they clearly can't keep notes) and had to provide very sensitive information to prove my identity WAY TOO MANY TIMES! Customer Service at 3 refuses to be accountable for any faults 3 has and tries to claim there is no issue even when my data won't work at all in many areas. I had to have 8 lengthy, painful conversations to fix 1 problem because 3 refuses to listen. AVOID AT ALL COSTS!!!! WORST SERVICE PROVIDER!! I have been with Vodafone, O2, Virgin and GiffGaff and they are all far better than this awful network.Even when I tried to lodge a formal complaint, no one contacted me. Their customer service and technical teams are ABSOLUTELY USELESS and TOTAL TIMEWASTERS!

Sheffield Three Mobile  
I have recently started a 24 month mobile contract at £18 per month to use with a Huawei E5573Bs-322 device. I now know what the "Bs" in "E5573Bs" stands for :(
The issues I have found already in the first month include:

1) When loading webpages it will more often than not, freeze half way through loading and require me to refresh the page.This seems to be especially bad when the webpage requires a secure connection using TLS. I also have three mobile internet on my iphone, strangely this has no issue loading such pages. even when the huawei device and my iphone are next to each other, my iphone performs fine but my laptop using the huawei device struggles. In addition, if I get my iphone to use the wifi from the huawei device I observer the same freezing issue with websites. This leads me to believe the device (Huawei) itself is the route cause of the the websites freezing, not necessarily the poor internet speed.

2) My internet speed routinely drops below 1 mbps. Now as I alluded to above I have an iphone that uses a Three mobile SIM aswell, now I can line up my Huawei device , my laptop which uses wifi and my iphone using its own SIM , next to each other on the table and my iphone can register 20gbps download speed and my laptop will register below 1 mbps. Again this points to the Huawei device being the problem.

3) at times my internet connection on both my iphone and Huawei device (which both use separate Three mobile SIM's) will just drop out for an extended period of time. This points to the coverage being crap.

All in all very disappointed with the quality of service here. really unreliable.

Leeds Three Mobile  
This is without a doubt the WORST thing I have ever bought.It simply hardly ever connects - even in areas of reputedly good coverage i.e. major cities and town centres. When it does, the wretched thing invariably disconnects within thirty seconds. It often has a good signal BUT limited service i.e. no internet. On the rare occasions it does actually connect and stay connected for more then thirty seconds, it is slower than dial up used to be! Topping up on line can taker thirty minutes due to the time lag between each of the four processes to do this. Do not buy this product. It is appalling.

Three mobile simple doesn't work in the City of London or in buildings. They can show you 4G sign from time to time but you won't be able to open a website or to check your email for less then 2-3 minutes. The speed and coverage is the worst I've seen ever.
To be honest broadband works a bit better in the country, outside London. But never you will get anything even close to 4G seed.
The prices are quite competitive and free roaming is the best advantage.
There must have the worst network in the UK.

London Three Mobile  
Absolutely ****** service, I was told by their website that 4G and 5G are available in my flat and that internet speeds were a minimum of 20Mbs.

Once I received the device it wasn't even receiving 4G, the maximum speed I received was barely 700 Kbs ( emphasis on the K ). After calling customer service, I was answered by an inexperienced technician in a different country that was reading a pre-set script and had absolutely no idea about what he was talking about.
His main recommendation: " Put the device next to the window it will work have a better signal "

Being desperate for Wifi, I opened the window and put the device almost outside which is when I finally reached a speed of 1Mbps ... I decided to cancel the service afterward and was told by the company to send the Hub back by post, they also had the nerve to tell me that If they do not receive the device or if it was damaged I would be charged with a 350£ penalty ( For a ****** Huawei Hub that does not cost more then 20£ )

I DO NOT RECOMMEND AT ALL

Gloucester is not a good area for broadband and BT does not provide a fibre service in my area so I can't use Sky which I would like to. I could have Virgin Media but they are expensive and unreliable..
Three broadband is steady, I have unlimited and it is reasonably priced at £27 pm. Signal strength varies a lot so I use the personal hotspot on my iPhone which is also with Three. Strength is around 18mbps.
Any information you may have about BT providing a local fibre service would be great.

This 'three 4G Huawei broadband' is the worst broadband I have ever used. It's completely unreliable and useless. There is always this hesitation by the network to open any page on my computer that I end up canceling and clicking it until it goes. This happens to be my worst broadband contract ever. And to imagine that I will be stuck with this rubbish for two years is completely sickening.

I cannot login to their website and cannot use their app. They collect money through direct debit and so far I have not been able to see my billing info. Today I called their costumer service and she told me if I want to know the billing details of the number I am calling through I should hang up and she will call me back on it. I hung up and she never calls.

Uxbridge Three Mobile  
HATE HATE HATE having this contract. I went in-store to inquire, as I wasn't keen on paying for expensive line installation in my new house. I had NO idea about how much data I need each month, but the sales assistant reassured me that 15GB was plenty and that she even watched Netflix daily with her MiFi. It seemed like a GREAT idea! £15 a month for a tiny, wireless connection!

I used the internet quite frugally at first, then eventually started a Netflix subscription. My data allowance ran out in two days. I phoned up Three, outraged, but they simply just suggested I don't stream movies anymore. The call centre staffed apologised a million times without offering any solutions. I was passed from person to person with the same reply, so eventually I just gave up. I guess that's why they were so repetitive. I'm so frustrated, I wish the sales assistant in store knew what she was talking about, otherwise I never would've entered into this contract! She had a duty to help educate people like me who had no idea, so now I'm stuck with this ridiculous contract. It's SLOW (Three suggested that it depends on what time I'm online...I could barely load a web page even at 3am) and my data even ran out this month after specifically AVOIDING large streams.

I've tried so hard to get rid of it, but I'm stuck. I've phoned countless times, filed complaints...There's nothing I can do. Thanks Three! Please train your staff better.

Brighton Three Mobile  
Worst provider ever. I hardly go a two month period without the system running slow or not being able to connect at all.

The customer service is about a useful as a chocolate fire tea cup. Every time I got in touch with them, I got someone in another country who didn't understand what I was trying to say, and i usually didn't understand them.

On more than one occasion I was told to take my laptop and drive to somewhere where i could get a better signal. They did not even try to resolve my issues. Ive been with them for three years because they where all that I could afford at the time.

My contract runs out soon and I will not be renewing it with them. as i can now afford a better service.

Would not recommend three to anyone.

Manchester Three Mobile  
Been with them for 7 months. Had download speeds of over 100mbps early morning, but typically over 50mbps most of day. Upload speeds excellent but never used. Any queries dealt with through chat very good. Only gripe is with the intro of 5G - it has been rolling out to my location since end of Feb for phones but not shown on coverage map. Broadband is supposed to follow. Youtube after 9:00 pm always "loading" - suspect this may not be Three's fault?

chester Three Mobile  
Our Three signal is good (looking at other reviews not everyone checks first). We are in a semi rural area so congestion should not be much of a problem. So far internet speeds have averaged 40-50 MBS, fine for 4k streaming. There is a bit of a lag as you start up, most of our speed tests point out this would not be good for gaming. Our previous fibre was not half of this due to distance from the centre. Reliability has not been 100% with a few days of poor service but compared to BT its about the same. Data transfers, especially uploads, have been extremely quick.
Customer service has been challenging at times, you get get the "we want to help you" type of approach but few will understand exactly what you are saying.
We have the Huawei AI cube (more of a cylinder really) which supplies the whole house fairly well. I use an Ethernet cable for the TV which seems much better for stability than wifi. I had a go at range extending but there seems to be an incompatibility with my tp-link plug in system. I have simply moved the antennas on my remote computer.
All in all very happy so far.

Have got a Huawei E3256 3 Mobile dongle which provides decent reception where I live. However, I have just updated my MAC to OSX Yosemite and the dongle now refuses to connect. 3 weeks after reporting the problem and a further week since complaining, customer support has failed to offer any help or advice. Yes - they're rubbish1

Have been recently burgled and trying to sort things out. 3 proved to be unsympathetic, unhelpful, aggressive and uncooperative. Bombarding me with calls (up to 7 calls in 24 hours) . Foreign operators who cannot understand or care less about our plight. Awful service. Just adds more unhappiness to our distraught situation. Does anyone English work for this company and give a dam??

Oh my the worst company ever. I bought a mobile dongle service to be used abroad in specific countries. It worked from Manchester to London but not beyond. I struggled switching it on and off trying to get it to work whilst abroad with no joy. On return to UK I cancelled the contract - with unbelievable difficulty. Then when final bill arrived they charged me £35 for using the internet. I couldn't understand it and still don't. I argued for several days but they insisted regardless of whether I used it or not I obviously had it on and needed to pay. I still can't get over it. Then to top things up. I sent my sons phone in for repair. The repair service removed the sim card and couldn't work out what they did with it. I ordered a new sim from three and had to pay £5.11. I nearly collapsed other providers replace them for free. There must be a 20K% markup on that bit of plastic. Would never recommend three to anyone. I would give zero stars if it was possible. Telephone customer service an absolute shambles (if you can get through).

Misinformed in Three shop when signing a two year dual service 'watertight' contract. Hours of phone calls to customer service because they do not respond to my complaints on their website. After contacting OFCOM, I have asked them to put things in writing, but they don't. They just ring, which makes it difficult to get the necessary documentation to justify a 'letter of deadlock'. Poor to non-existent mobile WiFi coverage. They advertise free 4G - but don;t have 4G cover in areas where most other providers do.

Very bad experience with Three Mobile. They make you buy a second SIM with a plan, when you buy a phone with them, so you end up paying your device, your normal package plan + another Plan for a SIM. Basically, it's their policy, so prepare yourself to pay! After two years paying my number and another SIM with a basic tariff, that I have never used, they make me cancel this other SIM plan (after the contract expired after these two years) and make me pay another £30 pounds, only to close this SIM, which, of course, I never used.

I am extremely unhappy with Three. I specifically asked for a cap of £80 when I made my contract. This was confirmed over the phone and later on I received a notification that I was close to my limit. I therefore expected it to stay this way.
Months later, I now receive a notification saying that I am close to my limit, so I check and it is at £209. How can this be if I had a limit of £80?
I called them and they denied any responsibility. I asked them to please check the call or speak to the person who made the contract with me. They said their calls are not saved longer than 12 weeks and the cannot speak to the person who makes the contract. I then asked for a manager and was told that I cannot be put through further than to the complaints department.
I asked if there is anything they can do as this is not my fault and was told that they can't do anything and I should be able to manage my usage better.
I had relied on the cap I had requested, which obviously was forgotten and Three is denying to take any responsibility or try to meet in the middle.

This is the worst service I have ever received
