Downton Cabby

Fancy being ferried around London like Lady Mary or Lord Grantham? Well, now you can…

On Friday 18th September workers, shoppers and tourists alike will witness a blast from the past when the vintage Beaford hits the streets of the capital on Friday, delivering Downton lovers from A to B entirely for free.

Passengers will be welcomed by a chauffeur dressed head-to-toe in authentic 1920’s attire and whisked away to their desired destination in a vehicle that’s actually been occupied by some of the show’s top stars over the years.

For a chance to hail a ride in the vintage cab all you have to do is tweet @ThreeUK using #DowntonCabby, with your request for a lift and details of your central London location.

4G Super-Voice is here.

Back in April we told you about our network plans this autumn. We’re really pleased to be able to tell you that the roll-out of our latest network enhancement is well underway; named 4G Super-Voice. This is a roll-out of low frequency 800MHz spectrum that allows mobile signal to travel much further into buildings and rural areas, removing many current coverage ‘blackspots’ across the country.

It’ll allow customers to make calls, send texts and go online in places they may have previously had poor or no signal.

This addition of the low frequency spectrum to our network, will enable our 4G network to carry voice calls, using VoLTE technology, as well as texts and data. We’re proud to be the first UK operator to launch VoLTE technology :-)

Three customers save £1.3 billion in roaming charges



We love a good stat here at Three towers. Especially when it involves over a billion pounds. Millions are good, but BILLIONS? Well billions simply cannot be ignored.

We’ve today announced that since the launch of our Feel at Home service in 2013, we’ve saved Three customers more than £1.3 billion in roaming charges. Imagine getting that bill?! ;-)

Feel at Home was launched to protect customers from unfairly high roaming charges. Since then, we’ve saved customers on average £330 every year. Which is enough to get you return flights to Dubai. Or a 2-night stay in a 4 star hotel in Vegas. Or designer luggage. You get the idea.

We also learnt today that the average Three customer now uses 500MB of data on each overseas trip. This equates to a holiday spam-tastic 833 Instagram posts or 2500 Facebook updates. Your friends and family may not thank you for that though!

Currently, Three customers can use their phones and tablets abroad at no extra cost in 18 destinations including France and, most recent addition, Spain. France and Spain are the two most popular destinations for Brits. It was predicted that in 2015 there will be 12 million visits to Spain and 8 million visits to France.

In the last 2 years a whopping two million of you used your phones abroad. In June alone this figure was 538,000. And it’s not over yet, with many people due to jet off this August and September this figure is sure to soar.

It couldn’t be simpler to use your phone abroad at no extra cost with us. As soon as you arrive, your phone automatically activates with Feel at Home, allowing your phone to pick up a local network and away you go! Just make sure your phone is activated for International Roaming before you go (you can do this by calling the team on 333)

If you go out of bundle, you will still benefit from reduced roaming rates – a no brainer for the modern traveller.
