The Three Bus at Boardmasters and Bristol Balloon Fiesta.

A couple of weeks ago you were introduced to the newest member of the Three family, our custom made double decker bus.

On Friday 6th of August the bus headed to the south west for the Boardmasters Surf and Music Festival in Newquay to make it’s first event appearance. Onboard we had everything from the latest smartphones to iPads and lots of people dropped in to find out what’s new and learn all about The One Plan.

Alan Pownall, Goldhawks and Mathew P brought the house (or should that be bus!) down with live acoustic performances, and the free ice creams, face painting and phone charging meant that there was always something going on.

In our Mobile Broadband garden, people chilled out with Nintendo DSs and PSPs – all connected to the internet with our award winning MiFi® service.

Our wheels were firmly on the ground at Bristol Balloon Fiesta last weekend which was a huge hit for us – we certainly didn’t let the wet weather dampen our spirits.

Next stop is Leeds City Centre this weekend and Glasgow St Enoch Square early next week so if you’re in the area we’d love to see you.

We shot a short video of our time at Boardmasters – take a look below to see what we got up to.


We want your MiFi feedback.

The new MiFi has been out there for a couple of weeks now so it would be really great to hear how you're getting on with it. We've been fortunate enough to get some really nice feedback from the press, including Stuff and the Telegraph, but it's your views that count. If you're not familiar with the product take a look at this video of the grand (well sort of) unveiling a few weeks back. For anyone that has the original MiFi and wants to upgrade, you don't need to wait until your contract's up. You can either renew early and get it as part of the bundle or buy it outright for a discounted price of £39.99 (save a tenner). To do this speak to our upgrades team by calling 500 from your Three phone or 08433730500. You'll be asked to enter the number for your Mobile Broadband SIM. Don’t forget to let us know how you’re getting on with your MiFi.
