#LenovoOnThree

Introducing the latest flagship to come from Lenovo is the Lenovo P2. This phone doesn’t only look the part with its full metal body and slim design encasing a 5.5” FHD super AMOLED display, but it also delivers the goods too. From Pay Monthly rates starting at only £18 on our network, you really can’t lose. Forget carrying your charging cable with you wherever you go and making sure you have spares in the car, this phone can last up to 3 days on a single charge! It’s that good, you can even use it as a power bank for other devices too. In the event that you do start running low then you can charge the whopping 5100 mAh battery with its 24W rapid charger, which will give you up to 10 hours of battery life in just 15 minutes of charging. Mind = blown!

Three brings some pre-Christmas cheer – and Internet connectivity – to Hebron.

Pretty, quiet and remote, the village of Hebron, Northumberland (about thirty minutes north of Newcastle) has a lovely church dedicated to St. Cuthbert, a smattering of stone cottages, modern bungalows and farms, and 172 residents.

What they haven’t had, for years on end, is a reliable high-speed Internet connection.

Until now.

The residents of Hebron have been relying on a copper cable which runs through the village for Internet access, and despite having a BT cabinet installed this past August, Internet connectivity has been patchy at best, with buffering issues and extremely slow speeds making any Internet use more of a hindrance than a help.

Things most of us living near the urban sprawl take for granted – downloading emails, streaming beloved shows, finishing an online homework project – are a daily nuisance for many in rural villages like this one. Imagine the inconvenience of trying to run a business or work from home.

Frustrated Hebron residents – who were left waiting in vain for someone from Openreach to arrive and sort out the issue – have had no choice but to pay for costly line upgrades, fixed broadband and portable Wi-Fi back-ups out of pocket, just to get online.

So we’ve put on our Santa hat and flown our sleigh right over to Hebron.

OK, fine, we took the train – but we did deliver some fabulous Christmas cheer.

And we’ve made sure that the residents of Hebron are connected to friends and family everywhere this Christmas. And for the new year ahead.

We’ve given the gift of Home-Fi to the residents of Hebron. Our broadband wireless routers aren’t linked to a fixed landline, so are ideal for anyone with long-term patchy Internet issues (like if you’re living somewhere remote) or for those in need of a short-term Internet fix (students and employees in temporary business locations will also benefit from this).

Now, this Christmas, Hebron villagers have the freedom to join in on the Christmas festivities however they want to, whether it’s Skyping with a loved one across the ocean or falling in love with the Queen all over again by catching up on Netflix’s The Crown.

And, of course, if need be, they can also tackle any looming work deadlines over the Christmas period. From the comfort of home.

For us, this is just another step in our daily journey to #makeitright, one day – and innovation – at a time.

Do you need to go #ColdTurkey this Christmas?

Once upon a time, Christmas was just a day picked to celebrate the birth of Jesus. It evolved over time, was even illegal in the UK for 12 years in the 1600s because of its pagan origins and then became the Christmas tree decorating, mince-pie stuffing, carol-singing, present-unwrapping, family-centric event it is now.

It’s magical, it’s excessive and it’s our favourite time of year. Most of all, it’s about celebrating peace and joy and love, with the people we love (well, most of the time).

SO. PUT. DOWN. YOUR. PHONE.

We don’t care if it’s the new iPhone 7 and you’re trying to curate the perfect “ugly Christmas jumper” family photo shoot while Dad is carving the turkey.

Using the Christmas tree light socket to charge a phone on 1% battery isn’t going to make you popular with the kiddies…

But at least no one noticed you pinging off What’s App messages during the church carol service. Or did they?

We’re all addicted to our phones. Some more than others… but we can all break the habit. If only for a few days over Christmas. Time to go #ColdTurkey.

As someone very wise – OK, OK, it was the Grinch – once realised:

“Maybe Christmas… doesn’t come from a store. Maybe Christmas… perhaps… means a little bit more?”

So, this Christmas, embrace people. Talk to your family members. Like, in person. Face to face.

Let yourself be flattered – and then annoyed – by the cousin who spends all of Boxing Day following you around (he’s 37, not 13)… and resist the urge to escape into your childhood bedroom to scour Facebook and try to decide if people are having a better or worse Christmas than you are.

Most importantly, enjoy the sights, the smells and the feels of Christmas: the food, the booze, the hours spent watching television and not moving off the couch. The walks, the family goss, the gorgeous, joyful expressions on the kids’ faces when they tear off the wrapping paper and see their presents (followed by the inevitable tantrums later in the day because they’ve gotten too many presents)…

Wishing you a very Merry Christmas from Three. We’ll catch up on What’s App, Snapchat, Facebook, Twitter, Gmail, Skype and everything else in the New Year.

Why should we care about making the air fair?

Oh, sweet phones. Always there for us. They are life. They’re attached to our hands, they sleep in our beds. They put us in touch with friends who are oceans away, and even teach us how to code or speak Finnish in our spare time.

We can’t exist without our phones. Or the airwaves that let us have conversations, send messages, watch our favourite videos, listen to our music and so much more.
Spectrum – aka our national airwaves – isn’t something most of us think about in our daily lives… or, well, ever.

But we really should. Considering the role our smartphones and tablets play in every aspect of our daily functioning, spectrum is a vital resource (possibly not as essential as the air we breathe, but pretty darn close). Spectrum is responsible for a network’s reliability, speed and service. Not to mention the cost of your monthly phone bill.

Consider this: in the whole of the developed world, only Thailand and Malaysia have a larger imbalance of the airwaves amongst mobile operators when compared to the UK.

You may have seen the recent news that Ofcom, which will be selling a slice of our national airwaves next year, has blocked BT – who already owns approximately 42% of the mobile spectrum – from acquiring any more 2.3 Ghz range airwaves in the 4G spectrum.

However, no measures have been put in place to stop BT from increasing its share of spectrum in the future, or to cap BT from bidding for higher 3.4 Ghz, 5G frequency at a later date.

The truth is, BT/EE already own too much. And when we conducted a YouGov survey*, 65% of UK customers told us they support a proposed cap on how much spectrum one company can own.

We’re petitioning for a fairer split of the mobile spectrum, and Three UK has joined forces with TalkTalk, CityFibre, Federation of Communication Services and Gamma to get behind a campaign to urge Ofcom to ensure that no network can own more than 30% of all mobile spectrum

This campaign, known as Make the Air Fair, asks all supporters to send a letter supporting the 30% cap on network airwaves to Ofcom CEO Sharon White (#TellSharon).

This will mean faster speeds, lower prices and greater coverage regardless of your provider in the future. If Ofcom doesn’t address the imbalance at next year’s auction, patchy coverage, poor service and rising costs might become an everyday reality.

And that’s something we can’t even bear to think about.

To keep our airwaves fair, you can tell Ofcom to do something about it by signing the consultation at maketheairfair.org.

*Three and YouGov conducted a survey into consumer attitudes towards service providers. All figures, unless otherwise stated, are from YouGov Plc. Total sample size was 2171 adults. Fieldwork was undertaken October 17-18, 2016. The survey was carried out online. The figures have been weighted and are representative of all UK adults (aged 18+).

Three’s immense Black Friday competition.

This festive season, live by the immortal wisdom of Tom and Donna from Parks & Recreation:

Treat. Yo. Self.

Yep, that’s our mantra this year: we’re all about spoiling ourselves and indulging a little (or maybe a lot. Yes, we’re looking at you, jet black iPhone 7). Once we’ve treated ourselves, then we can get to everyone else on the Christmas list.

Thank goodness for Black Friday deals – we can buy all the snazzy new tech we’ve been lusting after and saving up for at slashed prices, so we still have some cash left over to buy those Christmas presents next month (and the best part is, we don’t even need to leave the comfort of our home/sofa /bed to do it).

This November at Three, there’s a deal for everyone out there, no matter your personality, style or level of tech-savviness.

We’ve got all the latest devices, from the must-have Samsung S7 edge to every kid’s new obsession; the Amazon Kindle Fire tablet.
Check out the amazing offers available, for this ONE WEEKEND ONLY.

And… there’s more.

We’re so into the whole “spirit-of-giving-is-better-than-receiving” thing that we’re also giving away some fabulous prizes to lucky winners throughout Black Friday, including a Samsung S7 edge, an Amazon Kindle Fire Kids’ Edition tablet, a Fitbit Charge HR (yep, that’s the one with the heart monitor) and an iPhone SE.

All you have to do is tweet us a snap of yourself chilling out, relaxing, enjoying life… pretty much doing anything except queuing all day, or elbowing customers in shops, or climbing on top of other people in your quest to get those rose gold Bluetooth headphones to match your handset. Don’t forget to include the hashtag #win to be in with a chance.

Since we’re giving you what you need this Black Friday, you can sit back and leave the hassle of in-person Black Friday shopping to someone else.

Throughout the day, you’ll have the chance to enter to win one of our four amazing prizes, without so much as moving from your desk (or Westworld-binging spot, in case you’ve bunked off work to shop).
Just keep a close eye on @ThreeUK to see when the item of your dreams comes up for grabs. Winners will also be notified via Twitter.

And don’t even think about giving your prize to anyone as a Christmas gift. Sometimes, ’tis simply better to receive. Enjoy.

Ride a unicorn to work.

Yes, you read that right. The dark, cold, autumn days may have started to set in but this week we are brightening up the commute for Londoners. Fancy riding a unicorn to work? We thought so. We’re partnering with ZTE to create #MagicTogether, and injecting a little sparkle into the commuters’ day.

Forget the tube, train, bus, or even the Thames Clipper – for three days only our ‘Unicabs’ will be available to flag down in busy commuting areas across the city. The fantastical creatures have been brought to the capital to officially celebrate the launch of the new ZTE Blade V7 device that is exclusively available with us, and to make it right for busy workers fed-up of the same repetitive journey to work.

The beautiful white and rainbow-coloured Unicabs, fitted with a carriage big enough to seat you and three colleagues, will operate in Canary Wharf, Monument and Southwark on October 26, 27 and 28.

On board passengers can also trial the slick new ZTE Blade V7 and snap the sights that Londoners take for granted from the comfort of their private Unicorn-drawn carriage.

Commuters can share Unicab snaps and thoughts using #MagicTogether.

WHERE AND WHEN:

Weds 26th October 2016, Monument 7am-11am
Thurs 27th October 2016, Southwark 7am-11am
