VoLTE comes to Three.

It’s been a little while since we last had some network news to share. 2014 saw us roll out our 4G network and we’re still beavering away on this behind the scenes.

But this autumn will see something new coming to our network. It’s going to be getting a bit of a boost. This boost will come in the form of some low frequency spectrum (800MHz, to be precise) that we’ll be adding to the network.

Low frequency spectrum such as this will significantly enhance our coverage footprint, particularly indoors, which is excellent news when it comes to current coverage blackspots.

Three and Honor sponsor the Goat Race.

Three, in association with Honor, are to be the Official Coat Sponsors of the 2015 Oxford and Cambridge Goat Race.

That’s right. We said Goat Race.

Back in March we announced that we’ll be the UK’s exclusive tariff partner for the new Honor 6+ smartphone which is out on May 1st. We’re one of the first networks to bring the rising Asian e-commerce challenger brand to the UK.

The partnership will also see Three and Honor combine to produce the attire that will be donned by Goat Race participants Hamish and Hugo – one representing ‘Oxford’, the other ‘Cambridge’ – in the animal kingdom’s answer to the River Thames varsity showdown.

The Selfie Tour Bus.

When it comes to selfies you might have thought you’d seen it all – from belfies to selfie sticks, and even selfie suitcases – but today the phenomenon went one step further, as the first ever Selfie Tour Bus hit the streets of Barcelona.

Today is the day that Spain (and New Zealand) are added to our Feel at Home arsenal. Meaning you can now use your phones there at no extra cost. And no, this isn’t an April fool. Rock up in Spain and use your phone there exactly as you do at home. No worries about roaming charges, just #holidayspam to your heart’s content.

And what do holiday spammers love to share most of all? Selfies of course!
