What do they offer?
Three has some of the best SIM Only deals
around, so it’s no wonder they rate highly on our choice of network. They are also seen as the UK’s no.1 network for Smartphone users and offer fantastic SIM only unlimited Internet deals
Three offer two main types of SIM Only plans: Essential and Advanced. You can now choose to have a no thrills Essential plan that does not come with a personal hotspot allowance or their Feel at Home benefit where you can use data abroad (see below for more details).
Do you use the Internet a lot or have a Smartphone?
Three are head and shoulders above all others. In fact, out of the top networks, Three are the only ones to offer unlimited data with SIM Only. There are numerous Unlimited data deals to choose from but if you want a beast of a plan with unlimited everything then it will set you back £33 a month on a 12-month contract.
Do you use the Internet moderately or not often?
Most Three Mobile SIM Only contracts give you 1GB of Internet, which will be more than enough for the average user. If you decide it isn’t enough, you can add an Internet package from £5 extra p/mth.
