At the end of August we announced that December would see us begin our 4G network roll-out in London, Birmingham and Manchester.
Good things happen in December don’t they? There’s Christmas to look forward to and everything that comes with that. If you’re lucky you might see some snow. And most of us can look forward to a few days off at the end of the year. This year though, if you’re a Three customer, December could be even more exciting.
You’ll probably have heard in the news today that the Government’s spectrum auction is now over. We’re really happy to be able to confirm that we secured 2 x 5Mhz of 800Mhz spectrum which will compliment the 1800Mhz spectrum that we acquired in 2012.
You may have already heard our network news, as it was reported widely in the media last week. But In case you missed it, or want to hear it from the horse’s mouth, we’re making a commitment to offer Ultrafast services (and by this we mean DC-HSDPA and LTE) as a standard feature on all price plans.
Last week we had the pleasure of attending the uSwitch Mobile Awards. Having been nominated for an impressive four awards, we were pretty excited.

We also won, some might say, the most coveted award– ‘Best Network’.
Since our launch in 2003 we’ve been focused on building a mobile network for easy access to the internet. We’re not afraid to say that we <3 it. Right from the start, it’s what we were built for. And we know you’ve all been chomping at the bit for an update on our network story so without further ado, let me put you in the picture.
