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.

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!

Awards and stuff.

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’.

LU WIfi

Three offers Wi-Fi on the London Underground.

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!
