Sheffield Three Mobile  
Since i took a contract of router Huawei E5372 on 4.December 2014 it seemed to me ok until 8.December 2014
when all 15GB gone.As i tried to resolve that issue and get an answer why is that they told me that i had
used it all (and other things like pay more on bills and excuses of not getting cancellation) even i explained
to them that that's not possible as i have been at work until late time but unfortunately with their rude
attitude as they promised an investigation of what happened until now i haven't heard from them.So in the shortcut
as Three rejected my cancellation (even it was done after one week) still i have to pay for 2 years contract
although i'm not using their service as i am scared to do.

If i could rate half of the star i will do that as i am very disappointed with their behaviour and service

Three mobile broadband service is horrible. Web page takes indefinitely to load. I tried paying my daughter school fee on line this evening, it did not get through because of "frustrating slow speed". I regret that I bought it service.

New Basford, Nottingham Three Mobile  
Unbelievably ridiculous customer service, they made me go four times to the store and not get what I asked for after ignoring 6 emails of mine. They asked for £700 to terminate my contract and they couldn't do anything when I lost my sim card. DON'T GO WITH THREE

Nottingham Three Mobile  
Travelling from usa for 3 weeks, decided to use a UK mobile while here.
Carp hone Warehouse suggested my3 mobile, so I paid £25 for a SIM for a month, and bought an LG Nexus to use, which was a big mistake in itself.
My3 network dropped Jan 2 overnight, customer support has been unreachable, the website slow and no help at all
Will be taking the phone and the SIM back to the shop where I purchased it, probably won't get my money back, but will spend many hours panning my3 mobile on as many websites as I can.
Waste of time and money

London Three Mobile  
Almost every call drops or at least glitches and I have to play hunt the signal before using my phone almost everytime, perching precariously on the edge of my bath tub and pointing my phone out the window is about the only way it will work, so I have to leave the phone there to act as a mobile hotspot and use my tablet for internet access, any time a taxi or a plane goes by it will lose signal and I have to go through the rigmarole of signal hunting and resetting through the airplane mode and turning the hotspot on again. If it would not be rewarding them financially for failing to deliver a reasonable service, I would buy my contract out and I Will have nothing from three mobile ever again, I'm even going to try to ban them from sending me adverts!

Chichester, west sussex, UK Three Mobile  
Over the last week, these are the results of trying to download updates/win10 preview. TomTom 32Mb update - estimated time 29hours, New PC Widows 8.1 updates - failed twice to complete. Win10 3.6GB download - estimated time 5 days!
Service absolutely unfit for purpose with pages unavailable, timeouts and some download speeds showing 0kb/s , maximum I've had is 93Kb/s. 3 shop told me there were problems with masts in Wakefield area. 3 technician told me nothing wrong with masts in Wakefield area. After 30 minutes on the phone and various undisclosed diagnostic tests, they sort of admitted something wasn't quite right. However it would take 7 days to fix it.As 3 Mobile is my only link to the internet and the need to be able to use it anywhere in the UK, this reply was unacceptable.So, I've now got several PCs ( 2 new) requiring Updates a new TomTom that I can't register or download updates for and I'm continually having to retry accessing the Terminal Cancer support groups I need for my condition. In addition, we cannot access my wife's internet banking service in Crete. All this seems to have no effect on 3 Mobile getting their finger out to help me. They used to be good, but they really are rubbish now!

Wakefield, West Yorkshire Three Mobile  
Had 2 years good service, last month it stopped,a month latter after being tied into another 24 month contract with the promise the better router would work, still no internet, no exaggeration 30 phone calls latter hours on the phone, more lies than would be believed from the technicians and network team ie, were working on it,the account is set up wrong, the sim card is faulty,give us a week while we work on the mast, we will phone you back, etc just a few examples, they are trained to lie so to close the case down, I have never met such a bunch of liars,and hope never to come across this company again, your ok if things work, but if you have to contact them beware,it seems they take pleasure in your stress and make life very difficult, got through to customer relations today to be told we cant provide you with a service because we've upgraded to 4/5g and that's not in your area, and wont be mainting the old equipment where you were getting your signal from.

Crediton Devon Three Mobile  
I went to the 3 store to ask about their mobile internet. While I was there I was told about the 4g homefi, 300mbs and only £22 a month wow! I signed up and cancelled my sky contract. The best speed was just over 15 meg at 5 AM. Before 10 am I could get 4 to 5.5 meg after that 1 meg was fast weekends we often couldn't even get on Facebook. My first complaint I was told it was because of the unlimited service and they are working hard to solve the problems. My second contact when I asked to cancel my contract was agreed without any argument. If you are considering 3 4g homefi I would suggest you ask them to put the download speed for your postcode in writing.

Bridlington East Yorkshire Three Mobile  
I got mobile broadband to save money in comparison to fixed line. Speeds were OK at first, but for the past year I've been getting mostly less than 2Mb and often less than 1Mb, with pages taking ages to load, and that's in the middle of a large city. I often have to use my phone to get online. Tried once or twice to contact Three, but the script is always the same, have you tried this, that...Yes I have, I'm an intelligent person and know how to troubleshoot connection speeds. I've now given up and got fibre broadband, which is not much more than Three are charging me. I'm still in contract but I don't care, I just want out. Think carefully before you go for mobile broadband for your main home connection, other much faster connections are now not much more expensive.

Bolton Three Mobile  
you go cheap and you pay the price. Three are cheap for a reason but there's always someone who will bite. I was one of them. Cheap price for internet but connectivity intermittent and unreliable. And when cancelling, expect to be on the phone for some time as they try and try to get you to stay with them, giving excuse after excuse and then saying that there's an early termination fee that they're unable to waive. My recommendation, go with the providers that are most recognisable. They charge more but again, you get what you pay for.

Manchester UK Three Mobile  
I just wanted to cancel my contract and get a PAC. It took 3 phone calls, one visit to the store, many failed 'reset your password' links. A maddening experience. Our last phone call lasted 50 min ! Totally unacceptable. Plus, I never had any coverage, reason why I wanted to switch in the first place.

Middlesbrough Three Mobile  
This is without a doubt the WORST thing I have ever bought.It simply hardly ever connects - even in areas of reputedly good coverage i.e. major cities and town centres. When it does, the wretched thing invariably disconnects within thirty seconds. It often has a good signal BUT limited service i.e. no internet. On the rare occasions it does actually connect and stay connected for more then thirty seconds, it is slower than dial up used to be! Topping up on line can taker thirty minutes due to the time lag between each of the four processes to do this. Do not buy this product. It is appalling.

West Midlands Three Mobile  
My God where do I start?
How and why I ever got involved with this tin pot company I will never know. After having two contract phones with these jokers then trying to leave because the network coverage was so crap everywhere we went in the UK, the experience was so stressful and upsetting. They just wont let you leave! Endless arguments with the people they employ from the indian sub continent, many of whom you cannot understand, raises your blood pressure to dangerous levels!
I also foolishly took a broadband contract out too, only to find that the only thing they are very efficient in doing is taking your money each month, but they fail to appreciate that it SHOULD be for a reliable service level. Again wherever we went in the UK, there was no service. On the odd occasion we did receive a signal the download speed was crap!!
Sending emails, letters etc just don't work either. They just deny ever receiving anything even though its via their website! They just insist on you phoning them so you can spend hours on the phone arguing with countless individuals and getting nowhere. I STRONGLY ADVISE YOU TO KEEP AWAY FROM THIS COMPANY!!

Swindon Three Mobile  
So Three UK think it's alright to offer you a refund one day and then say no sorry our guy was wrong the next day! Their customer care service is shocking, avoid like the plague... They also say they'll cancel your contract months ahead of time but they don't... You'll still need to go through a painstaking conversation with them a month before it should have cancelled :-/ not impressed

Edinburgh Three Mobile  
The worst provider i ever experienced.. Signal never works,I live in central London and Im never able to use my services, I constantly need to connect any Wi-Fi wether i am at home or outside.
Recently i gave Birth and when it was time for me to rush to the hospital I tried to make a call to reach my husband but the signal was so pooooor that i couldnt get hold of him. Thanks god i could call via whatsapp using the Wi-Fi from another provider ... very disappointed with that company I have to wait for my contract to end so I can stop this ****

Also when I asked for an extension as my bill came so high they wouldn’t allow me ... real rubbish !

Pereira Three Mobile  
terrible service.
the broadband was down within the first week of service. The device looked as if it had been used before, the sim card was already installed. I couldn't register on the website as the password they gave me didn't work and I never received the mail to reset the password. So I had to call, I couldn't go through the first day. The second day, I waited 1:30h and gave up. They have literally 5 songs on repeat, hurting your ears I'm sure on purpose, an actual torture.3 ppl asked for my details and put me on hold again. I was so fed up I decided to cancel my contract, and waited for another 30mn to talk to someone. It's the most ridiculous service you can imagine. It might be cheap, but it definitely isn't worth your time and energy.

London Three Mobile  
Company you can recommend to your worst enemy - three mobile customer service is just awful. I was calling 6x about particular problem before they fixed it.
Other thing Three mobile data signal is very poor. Customer service says you need to contact department about, they will check why signal is bad and will try to sort it out. When connected that department has excuse - your phone is faulty (in our case 7 phones have the same problem with signal). We have situation when 9 people are sitting in one room (iphone 4s, iphone 6, samsung s4, s5, s5, s6, note2 on three mobile; iphone 4 and samsung s5 on other networks). Three mobile's signal is coming and going on all phones - one minute it is here, then dissappears, then again appears, it is jumping between H, H+ and 4G, and it shows full bars, but you can't connect. On all phones the same. Absolutely helpless. Other networks permanently have signal. We are located in London. Here is NO CHANCES to get any help from three mobile customer service. But three mobile will charge you for nonexistent signal properly, 'because you signed contract with us'. For them it is one side contract, they are not obligate to provide service you were expecting when chose to get their simcard. And after that they are shameless enough to try sell you a new contract. Just try to avoid this company!

London Three Mobile  
This 'three 4G Huawei broadband' is the worst broadband I have ever used. It's completely unreliable and useless. There is always this hesitation by the network to open any page on my computer that I end up canceling and clicking it until it goes. This happens to be my worst broadband contract ever. And to imagine that I will be stuck with this rubbish for two years is completely sickening.

Carmarthen Three Mobile  
Unbelievably terrible experience, do not use 3 for their home broadband.
Early into our contract the wifi was awful - fluctuating all over the place and unusable half the time. We called support and were told that we had to call while the wifi was actively down and this had to be a problem three days in a row for them to do anything about it. As it's wireless wifi, they specifically don't guarantee any minimum speeds, so you actually have to be fully offline to my understanding.

Now that our contract is up, we called to cancel it, only to find out that our wifi hub is outdated and has been known to be faulty for a long time now (Huawei B311). Never mind the half hour of flat out refusal to cancel the contract while trying to negotiate for us to stay on. It's beyond me that they weren't recalled and we weren't notified at all.

I used their webchat service to attempt to register a complaint about the fact that they were continuing to knowingly provide a faulty service and that we'd generally had terrible service for the duration of the contract, for service for future customers.

I was told it was our fault, then threatened that they would waive the contractual 30 day notice period, leaving us without wifi completely until the new provider sets up in a couple of weeks.

Seriously, just don't even bother. I'm completely floored by the whole experience.

Failsworth Three Mobile  
Oh, how I wish I had done more research and found this review page before I committed myself t a 24mth contract for Home 4G Broadband with Three. As with the high percentage of other reviews my experience of Three is abysmal. The broad band speed they advertised of 25 Mbps came in between 3-5 Mbps when I checked by my lap top. It’s like going back ten years with internet speed. The customer service as already mentioned by other reviews is terrible, you get sent to a call centre in the far east and get asked the same ridiculous question, which is very frustrating and you just end up going in circles. I eventually got them to admit that there was a problem and they admitted that there was too much demand in the area and that their system can’t cope. They have to their credit given me two months free of charge to compensate, and they admitted that the 5G upgrades they are doing to their system are causing the problems. It was clear to me that they know that there are problems on their system but just selling it to people anyhow. The other thing is that they don’t send you any record of your complaint and nothing is put on paper. I’ve been told that everything should be ok by the 26th march. I now have no internet in my flat, except one that it is so slow its infuriating and I can’t get another internet contract going because I’m locked into this one, it’s an atrocious service. If there are no improvement by then the only action I can take is to cancel by standing order, which in doing so I might face legal action. So, from my experience if anybody is contemplating to with Three, STAY WELL CLEAR OF THEM!!!

Scunthorpe Three Mobile  
Hoodwinked by AYGE data, I took out a month-by-month contract one Thursday at the Three Store in Stratford, London. It apparently had a 14-day no coverage no quibble guarantee.

After the SIM activated I found out that the data rates where I work in London were terrible, and I had no signal whatsoever at home.

So on the Saturday I took it to my local store in Bromley. Here I requested to be disconnected and my PAC sent as I had no covereage.

Surprise surprise: I would have to pay 2 months, the current month plus the month for which my "30 days notice" period covered. I pointed out I hhad been told that by returning the SIM within a few days I could have the contract nulled. They phoned CS - I wasn't party to all the conversation but essentially the outcome was that I had to go back to Stratford.

So, on the Monday, I did. What happened here defies belief for a modern "customer focused" company. The store manager (no less) looked at me like a piece of sh*t and rang CS. He then handed me his phone and told me to deal with it!

30 minutes later I was still waiting for someone from CS to answer. And when they did: I got the same story about 2 months payments etc etc. I gave the phone back to the store manager and asked him to come to an agreement with CS whereby my NO QUIBBLE GUARANTEE could be granted. The storemanager eventually hung up on the CS guy. Whilst I was standing there I got an email from CS saying (roughly) this: "nothing has changed, you will continue to be charged monthly".

The Store Manager then typed out a form on his PC which, I assumed, was going back to CS with my details. It did, in fact, have a reference to a 14-day NO QUIBBLE GUARANTEE. How infuriating. He had this power all along. What was the point of making me wait on the phone for over half an hour? Did he think I was just going to walk away?

So, I was told that the PAC would be issued in 24-48 hours.

When I told my wife she reckoned I would be beter off checking the following day to see what was being done. Oh man. It got worse.

I called "Customer Service". They had no record of my disconection & PAC request. The woman kept telling me I had to go into the store. I kept asking her to call the store. But she would not. After 20 minutes of this cr*p I asked to speak to her manager. I was transferred, and the guy did phone the store, and the outcome of this was particularly farcical.

My request had been sent to a "Backroom Team". And he could not speak to that backroom team. I asked for a case number. He did not have a case number. I asked if he could ring the backroom team and ascertain whether my request was known, and what my case number would be. He refused "they do not have a phone number". I asked him to email the backroom team. He refused "they do not have an email address".

Really??? A team at Three (which is a telecom company right?) have no email and no phone.

This "manager" informs me that I must go back to Stratford. I ask again for him to contact his background team, and he says he does not have the authority. So.. he has the authority to ask ME to go halfway across London, but not enough authority to call or email a team in his own company. Is this for real?

So 4 days after my first attempt to get a PAC, and 2 since my last there is no end to this in sight. I had some inkling that PACs were supposed to be issued with a maximum delay of 2 hours.

The Customer Service of 3 is as bad as I have ever had, only Talk Talk is comparable. I reckon nobody wants to take control of this as their precious Cost Codes get hit - would explain why nobody at Bromley would touch it, why CS refuse to acknowledge a 14-day return policy, and why Stratford are so reluctant to take direct action. Compare this to a proper custome focussed company - think (say) First Direct, or Amazon, or Tesco. Do you think anything like this would be happening at any of those?

The broadband is non existent in Canary Wharf, calls and internet are non-existent in West Wickham, and where I did get connection it never got close to 4G speeds (not even to their much vaunted double speed 3G).

I absolutely reccommend everyone to steer clear unless you know you will not have coverage problems.

A one star rating is actually too good. The service is appalling in every respect: speed, reliability, connection and customer service. After me reporting them to the ombudsman they even had the gal to deny that they deliver a well below par service. I’ll take them to court for breach of contract.

I have recently started a 24 month mobile contract at £18 per month to use with a Huawei E5573Bs-322 device. I now know what the "Bs" in "E5573Bs" stands for :(
The issues I have found already in the first month include:

1) When loading webpages it will more often than not, freeze half way through loading and require me to refresh the page.This seems to be especially bad when the webpage requires a secure connection using TLS. I also have three mobile internet on my iphone, strangely this has no issue loading such pages. even when the huawei device and my iphone are next to each other, my iphone performs fine but my laptop using the huawei device struggles. In addition, if I get my iphone to use the wifi from the huawei device I observer the same freezing issue with websites. This leads me to believe the device (Huawei) itself is the route cause of the the websites freezing, not necessarily the poor internet speed.

2) My internet speed routinely drops below 1 mbps. Now as I alluded to above I have an iphone that uses a Three mobile SIM aswell, now I can line up my Huawei device , my laptop which uses wifi and my iphone using its own SIM , next to each other on the table and my iphone can register 20gbps download speed and my laptop will register below 1 mbps. Again this points to the Huawei device being the problem.

3) at times my internet connection on both my iphone and Huawei device (which both use separate Three mobile SIM's) will just drop out for an extended period of time. This points to the coverage being crap.

All in all very disappointed with the quality of service here. really unreliable.

Very poor customer service. I was phoning on behalf of my brother (had permission). I tried to buy a new phone literally giving them money and they messed up the details numerous times, passed me around to different people and left me hanging. Terrible customer service, they pass you on if they can’t deal with it.

It is difficult to know where to start with this company. Their network coverage is unreliable and nothing worse than not receiving texts or suddenly finding that you cannot make a call because there is no signal. They were particularly unhelpful and some of the call centre staff (and one of their managers) were quite rude when I explained that they were not being very helpful. After my contract expired I tried to cease the service. I found it difficult to get a PAC Code (promises but no code forthcoming). Eventually referred them to the Ombudsman Service. Cannot recommend Three and would be surprised if it is still around in a year's time!!

Lamborghini and Maserati don't need to advertise their products because their state of art quality screams for itself, mouth to mouth.

Unlike terrible service quality by 3 that needs to drop their prices to pathetic levels AND sponsor Chelsea to desperately attract customers.

Here is the horror story, on Sunday I walked in the store to get my SIM card checked for not working since I hadn't topped it up for over a year as I was abroad doing business and being their customer for 4+ years, I was expecting that I wouldn't need any identification to confirm that im their client.

However, I was sent back home to get an ID. I went back to the store then I was told that they can't accept my EU ID since DOB and pic are not on the same side. I wasnt even told beforehand so I had to go another round to get my passport.

After spending 2 hours in store, observing the employees STRUGGLING to get their customer support service colleague on the phone to sort my issue out, I was told to come back on Monday and try again.

On Monday, still the same STRUGGLING story, so they decided to go Live Chat, which is something I coud do myself at home and save myself time of my life and money.

Eventually after 30 minutes I was told that my SIM would be delivered to my address in 1-2 working days.

However after 3 working days nothing shows up, I go Live Chat and to my huuuuge disappointment, I was told that my SIM hadnt been placed in delivery by mail yet.

Causing me to lose even more money because people were unable to contact me.

Beyonf awful, I would rate 3 with ZERO stars if I could.

AVOID THREE AT ALL COSTS!!! Customer service is appalling, called them today to cancel after 4 yrs and the first person i spoke to said i would incur a charge for cancelling early even though my contract is due up at the end of the month, second person i spoke to called me a liar as i told him i was offered a better deal with another reputable company and was told not only did this well known company supply refurbished handsets but that i would need to pay £60 to cancel early even though my plan is 35 a month. I eventually agreed to pay this amount just so i did not have to deal with this company any more. I was then passed through to another department only to be told on 5 separate attempts that i could not be located on their systems, after 45 mins, 4 different advisors i eventually was able to cancel for a fee of 59.25. I have since contacted the other company who aledgedly sell refurbished handsets to be told this is false and three have used this tactic to pressure other customers into not cancelling. DO NOT BUY FROM THREE, YOU WILL REGRET IT

Agree with all other reviews, as we have had the exact same experience.

Pulled into a £20 P/M contract for 24 months.

Unbelivable. I've been with three since 2007, I have my phone contract and recently the mobile wifi (with Huawei AI Cube)

Given the current work from home situation for most people, its become more important than streaming netflix etc. During a working day I have to reset the hub multiple times to get an even passable connection.

Phoned them up and told to switch to 3G, which is equally as sh** as their pathetic 4G connection. The amount of disconnects and low speed daily has become intolerable.

As soon as both my contracts are up, they will lose my business forever.

Do yourself a favour and just avoid Three no matter how many offers they throw at you. They are liars.
