3 Network changes terms of 'All you can eat data'

Interesting advert in The Sun today for the 3 Network.

"Goodbye data limits. Hello Three"... reads the advert.

"Tethering your phone to another device to connect the Internet is not included"..... Reads the small print!!!

That basically means that ALL networks are enforcing restrictions to the 'unlimited' data plans.

Tethering isn't and has never been included on PAYG AYCE or 30 Day One Plan with AYCE only ever has been and is still now included on 24 month One Plan with AYCE.

Re: 3 Network changes terms of 'All you can eat data'

Good. They're the worst mobile network to be with anyways. With call *cough* centres and advertising I cannot see how they could afford it in the first place. You need to be like giffgaff and then you can offer what you can. 

 

giffgaff 1, 3 0. 


Just because giffgaff has a problem doesn't mean everyone else is...

Want to tether?
If you are on The One Plan contract (handset and SIM Only) we’re happy for you to tether, this means you can connect your phone to other devices via USB or WiFi to connect to the internet. If you’re
not on The One Plan, you can get a Mobile Internet Add-on, or a Tethering Add-on. See page 7 for how to get one.

You have to admit though, when it comes to blazing fast 3G speeds, 3 are the best.

Re: 3 Network changes terms of 'All you can eat data'

I dunno, 86GB with three (don't know it that is even true) but thats a lot, could anyone actually use that amount of data unless bed bound and addicted to HD TV via mobile / computer?
