Wednesday night was all about the uSwitch Mobile Awards for us at Three…and boy they didn’t disappoint.
With only 17 awards up for grabs we managed to come home with SIX beautiful, shiny gongs to add to our growing collection.
We’ve got some fantastic stats to share with you. Who doesn’t like a good stat?!
We know you all love the internet like we do, so it comes as no surprise that Three customers are using more data than customers on any other network.
Being free to tweet and take selfies to your heart’s content is what a great mobile experience is all about, which is why we’re ahead of the game when it comes to data usage. The average Three customer uses a whopping 2.6GB of data, up from 2.2GB at the same point last year. This is great news as it shows that Three customers are getting the most out of their smartphones with our 3G and 4G network.
Of course, more data usage means more data traffic and recently we revealed that we’re leading the way when it comes to mobile data traffic too. Enders, an industry analyst, has found that we have the largest share of mobile data traffic (45%) in the UK. That’s a lot of tweets and status updates.
We’ve also been winning our fair share of awards recently. Which is nice From Broadband Genie’s top accolade , to least complained about network according to Ofcom. Most recently, and something we’re especially proud of, we won MacWorld’s number 1 network for iPhone award, winning every single category – best 3G network, best 4G network, best network coverage, fastest network and the most reliable overall.
In addition, Root Metrics have today released their latest network reliability index, we’re pleased to say we shared top rankings in 12 out of the 16 major cities including London and Manchester. And we came first outright in Scotland and Northern Ireland. High five!
In the grand tradition of music makers, we’re not in this for the awards, but it’s great to know our hard work is paying off and that you guys have other tangible ways of seeing why we might be the network for you.
Step in to the light and say ‘hello three’.
For Three customers who regularly use the London Underground it’s time to celebrate; no more staring into space whilst waiting for a train, no more being unable to tweet your other half to let them know that you’ll be late home because the tubes are delayed again.
We’re pleased to announce that in the coming weeks we will be joining the ‘Wi-Fi on the underground’ party. Woop!
We don’t think roaming charges are fair.That’s why we offer all our customers Feel At Home. It lets you use your allowance to call and text the UK and use your data without paying a penny more.
It can be pretty daunting trying to pick a mobile phone network, there are so many different things to consider. Who’s going to give you the best 4G deal, who has the best phones, who has the best roaming packages? We could go on.
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.
