Students_who_MIR_3

Calling all students

We want to support students who are making mobile better.

As part of our campaign to #makeitright, we want to support students who are trying to make mobile better.

We will be selecting five students that we feel #makeitright and will be rewarding them each with £1,000

worth of devices.

What are we looking for?

Any project that looks at how we can improve mobile phones. From the devices themselves (e.g. battery power, phone glare to phone pimping) to the way we use them (e.g. new apps, better alarm clocks, selfie stick 2.0).

Are you a student who has a project related to making mobile better?

Fill out an application form here http://po.st/MIRstudents

Please note: all entrants must be over 18 and be studying or a recent graduate and be based in the UK.

We will get back to you if your application is successful.

When stuff sucks, #makeitright

Alri-ight, alri-ight, everything’s gonna be alri-ight!

It is now! Today we’ve announced our standpoint on the mobile industry with a new campaign, featuring Jackson, our fluffy purple ambassador. Our new TV ad sees Jackson at first feeling dejected, damp and fed up of everything that sucks in the world. Downtrodden and disheartened, he’s about to give up.

Until one day he decides to fix the stuff that sucks. Galvanised into action, with East17’s ‘It’s Alright’ as his anthem, he sets out across the land to make things better for everyone.

Calls to and from Nepal.

Following the recent earthquake in Nepal we will be making all calls and texts to Nepalese landline or mobile numbers free for Three customers until May 8th.

This will be by way of a credit on customer bills. Some may see a charge initially, but depending upon billing cycle, they will also see a credit further down on the same bill, or in their following months bill.

In addition we’ll be crediting the accounts of those people who have made calls and texts to Nepal since April 25th.

For any of our customers currently in Nepal, we’ll also be crediting accounts for calls and texts made between April 25th and May 8th.

Customers won’t need to do anything in order to receive the credits, they’ll happen automatically.

We will continue to monitor the situation after the 8th of May.

If you have any questions about this, get in contact via Twitter using @ThreeUK or post any questions below.

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.
