An absolute JOKE of a company!

Where do I start? The only reason I have to use this shower of fools is purely for work purposes.

I ring to top up the broadband and am ALWAYS in a queue. It's impossible to top up on line. They even have a dedicated line for the fact that you simply CAN'T ever top up on line thus incurring overinflated call charges!

You finally get to speak to someone who tries to keep you on line for even longer by trying to pass the time of day!!

After an age you are told that it's all been completed and to simply unplug and replug the dongle and hey presto!

NOOOO ! not the case - guess what? It does NOT get connected so you have to call back AGAIN and go through the whole procedure AGAIN.

I've got wise to this so today I'd gone through this whole frustrating sage and got put through to the 'technical dept' once AGAIN............

.............

Here we go...The 'tech' was telling me how to plug and unplug the dongle - yes been going that for an hour! Next he asks me to take out sim and do a few other stupid things. At this point I asked if I was on the Ant and Dec show. My sarcasm was wasted on him but never mind!

I didn't do any of the things he said but I pretended to. Guess what after another FIVE minutes of stupid instructions the internet came on!!!! I hadn't actually done anything!!!!!!!!!!!

He couldn't believe I'd DARED to not follow his instructions!! lol

They obviously get people to keep calling and waiting until they decide to simply connect you!

WHAT AN ABSOLUTE CON
AVOID THIS COMPANY LIKE THE PLAGUE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

London Three Mobile  
I have an “All you can eat Unlimited data” contract with Three. Everything was going fantastic for a few months. My downloads and my streaming speed was great and so was my Internet speed.
About 3 months ago I noticed that my signal wasn’t so good anymore and that the speed of my downloads was really bad.
Don’t waste your time calling them because they’ll try to make you think that your SIM card is faulty or that your handset is faulty or any other thing they can distract you with to avoid to tell you that they are throttling/restricting your downloads.
When I connect to the WiFi everything works wonderful, so my SIM and my Handset cannot be faulty.
I called them and asked them if they were restricting my downloads and they assured me 10 times that they weren’t do anything like that, that they don’t restrict anything. So I asked them to send me an email confirming the statement they just made 10 times and they were so certain of. The answer to this of course was that they don’t send emails and that I can find that information in their website. So I asked them to direct me exactly to where in their website they mention this piece if information. After being reluctant to that and then made me wait for 15 more minutes on the line, they told me that they do have restrictions but just in peak hours. They have just lied to me, repeatedly. I was so furious that they treat the costumers like we are stupid. I used to have a service I don’t have any more. A service I’m paying for and you are supposed to provide.
So now, I asked them to direct me exactly to where you can find that information in their website and what I could read in this link is that they restrict Internet from 3pm to 12am. You can read more in the link below.
The question is, what is the point of that? That is exactly the hours anybody will be awake to do anything. They make it sound as if you can just set your alarm for 2am so you can wake up and watch some TV.
They apply these fair use policies during exactly the hours people actually need access to data. What’s the point of paying for it then? Or having it all? It’s not like you’d be awake when speeds are normal.
It’s now 12am and my download and streaming speed is poor. I experienced the same thing with Giffgaff, to the point you couldn’t even use your browser or listening to the Internet Radio. Three is just going to get worse and worse. If I were you, I wouldn’t join them. You’ll get into an endless loop of frustration and find yourself talking on the phone to people who’ll make your life so difficult that you’ll feel physically sick.
I’m now looking for another mobile company – I can’t deal with this poor service again.

it works well at the first one month, but one day, they suddenly blocked me getting into some public websites,which i used all the time. i have to call them to unblock me and now the speed is terrible and unstable, i can't even use it for my work zoom meeting. and the funny thing is I can't even log into my router, Three is obviously monitoring people, very doggy!!

As is often said in these sites. If there was lower than one I would give it. Appalling service, appalling speeds, total lack of interest if youcontact the shop. All in all, I am suprised they are still in business. Just absolute *****. And I NEVER normally bother with giving reviews. So that's how bad it is.

Bristol Three Mobile  
Have been recently burgled and trying to sort things out. 3 proved to be unsympathetic, unhelpful, aggressive and uncooperative. Bombarding me with calls (up to 7 calls in 24 hours) . Foreign operators who cannot understand or care less about our plight. Awful service. Just adds more unhappiness to our distraught situation. Does anyone English work for this company and give a dam??

Sussex Three Mobile  
HATE HATE HATE having this contract. I went in-store to inquire, as I wasn't keen on paying for expensive line installation in my new house. I had NO idea about how much data I need each month, but the sales assistant reassured me that 15GB was plenty and that she even watched Netflix daily with her MiFi. It seemed like a GREAT idea! £15 a month for a tiny, wireless connection!

I used the internet quite frugally at first, then eventually started a Netflix subscription. My data allowance ran out in two days. I phoned up Three, outraged, but they simply just suggested I don't stream movies anymore. The call centre staffed apologised a million times without offering any solutions. I was passed from person to person with the same reply, so eventually I just gave up. I guess that's why they were so repetitive. I'm so frustrated, I wish the sales assistant in store knew what she was talking about, otherwise I never would've entered into this contract! She had a duty to help educate people like me who had no idea, so now I'm stuck with this ridiculous contract. It's SLOW (Three suggested that it depends on what time I'm online...I could barely load a web page even at 3am) and my data even ran out this month after specifically AVOIDING large streams.

I've tried so hard to get rid of it, but I'm stuck. I've phoned countless times, filed complaints...There's nothing I can do. Thanks Three! Please train your staff better.

Brighton Three Mobile  
We bought this because of the immediacy - as opposed to waiting for installation. My advice: ALWAYS WAIT FOR INSTALLATION OR SEEK ANYTHING ELSE. This device is absolutely awful, genuinely the worst internet provider I've ever used. The people on the lines for customer service are really good but it ultimately does not matter because the product itself is categorically useless. I've had it for seven months - in which time I've moved three times - and every single place I've used it, it has varied been working extremely slowly - or not at all. Seriously, do yourself a favour and steer clear of this one.

Horrible horrible broadband. As a user I have never been so helpless. Three broadband charged me double the bill in one month. When I asked for help on customer care, they made me wait for 40mins and I am kidding. When I went to the store they asked me to call the customer care. Horrible and pathetic service. Never ever opt for this please if you want to stay in peace.

London Three Mobile  
Got a contract with mobile broadcast on ipad2 since last year, bundled with 15gb mobile data. Very bad reception at home, no working solution (wifi signal, mobile home signal box) all rubbish. I wanted a lower tariff as i am UNABLE to use the mobile data anyway but they could not give me the option. I am still bound to pay the contracted price even if i am dissatisfied with the service. I have faithfully endured one year paying for the device and mobile data which i dont use and to my horror i still need to pay for another year! Customer service misinformed me that i can make changes to my tariff a year after which i thought i will have done today but no. That will cost me early contract adjustment fee of 250£ and if i decide to cancel the service? 250£ all the effin same. The most frustrating customer service encounter of my life.

Crap, don't get it. Highly recommend you look else where.

- Unstable as ****
- Connection dropping
- Not suitable for anything other than youtube which if you're lucky it might only buffer once. (IT'S 2019!)
- Sounds too good to be true, save your money...

Awful company. 2 years ago I went to the three store in Bedford to do an upgrade. Unbeknownst to me I was also given a whole new contract despite only wanting an upgrade. For over a year I was charged for 2 contracts. As soon as I realised I was being double charged I stopped paying the direct debit that had no correlation to my phone bill. I started receiving letters for a number I've never had asking for money. After receiving a letter stating that the number had now been disconnected and the remaining balance would soon be sent to a debt collector, I paid the balance and considered the matter resolved. I have now received requests for more money. On contacting Three I have been told that they have no record of the disconnection/cancellation letter despite having records of the other letters and I am therefore liable for the £70 they want from me.

Avoid them. Utter cowboys.

Rubbish service, some days it's 15mbps, some days 20mbps but to many days its 1mbps. Its not good enough and now they are trying to sell me 5g when the 4g hasn't worked consistently. I wonder if they are slowing down the 4g network to encourage people over to the 5g network?

Unbelievably bad customer service. Spoke to over 10 different people over the phone to try activate my account but no one could tell me the same answer. My account was lost, apparently i didn't exist and my postcode was registered to another person. Tried to cancel but I have to wait 72 hours for the account to be activated. I will believe it when I see it. Not holding much luck with these guys. Should have gone with Sky.

Very rarely does the speed reach 20 megabits. It never does in the evening and often stops working completely. The wifi unit itself also crashes often needing to be reset in order to get any connection. I have been with three many years but this service has let them down terribly

Hartlepool Three Mobile  
I wish there were 0 stars but unfortunately, I can rate minimum 1 star. I used this operator from January, and I am from overseas, when I asked them if I will or will not pay for when I am not here they said there will be no problem, you will be paying pay as you go, but then gave me monthly, so I had to pay all year even the 4 months which I was not in the UK. When I told them that they said it is not their problem, I have to go to the store where I bought it. Afterwards, this month they did not give me my new bill, so my usage this month added up to last month bill, so I had pay 30 pounds extra. Anyways, maybe it is cheap but the worst customer service and telephone operator I have ever seen.

Shockingly bad. Its now basically unusable and I have to use my 02 phone to tether to my computer. So annoyed. It cuts off all the time and everytime I try to upload a file it basically renders the whole broadband useless. Customer service (in India) just tell me to move my router - after 45min chat... How many more times can I move my router??? I wish I could give less than 1 start but I can't

Waste of money at best we are running 1.77 mbps download speed. Rang to complain after 1 month of start of contract when the cancellation period was over as that's when it went garbage. Been calling at least once a month so for nearly 18 month and they only have records for last 4 month said I have never complained before. Then to be told the coverage in my area is very poor but in the shop when we took the contract out they stated it runs near on perfect. Absolute ******** will not renew, robbing tears.

Absolutely unreliable service. Unable to Skype or video conferencing. Misleading information before signing contract. Costumer service advised me to monitor my internet speed and tried to convince me that there is no problem with traffic volume when all my tests shown that service is grossly oversubscribed. Summarized : one horror story in 10 years of using internet.

Harrogate Three Mobile  
The worse company I have ever come across. All what they care about is your money. No consideration for customers. The automated system is been set in a way that if you want to cancel the service you would not get through.
I have been paying for 16 months for service I have not used and they admit that and there is no willingness out of good gesture for repaying my money back or even part of it.
I strongly advice everyone not to take any contract with three is just a ripoff, disgusting awful company.
I would just give ZERO, ZERO for all the ratings. And a copy of this letter with the details of my experience with three is been passed on to watch dog and trading standard agency.

Newcastle upon tyne Three Mobile  
Without doubt this is the worst broadband service I have ever used. I have a 2 year contract for HomeFi with a Huawei B535 Router and after 2 months of suffering dropped connection, slow speeds and unable to connect to internet I gave up and bought a Virgin package again. If you are thinking of taking a HomeFi contract Do Not Do It. You will not be happy with the service. The customer service is appalling, unknowledgeable, unhelpful and could not care less about the customer. I live in a 4G high signal strenth area with 5 bars on the router signal connection. When it works correctly it does so at 15-20 Mbps, the trouble is it only works correctly for minutes at a time then drops the connection, fails to reconnect and then when it does reconnect it runs at 15-20 Kbps, the speed of a tortoise. Restarting the router makes no difference. Netflix spends all its time buffering after the initial connection and is unwatchable so their Go Binge promise for Netflix is a lie. Bottom line is that I have thrown away over £500 on a 2 year contract that is absolutely useless for the purpose. Please learn from my mistake. Do Not Use Three.

A few years ago, I was made redundant, I was out of contract with them so called to reduce my cost they put me on a £10 a month payment, I looked in my3 and ended up with a I'll of over £300, they then denied I had contacted them, after a few months after cancelling I thought hold on if they had no record of me cancelling I should of still been on my £45 a Month contract, to late by then. They are complete liars, and there speed is abismal O2 37mb, 3 2 to 3 mb, avoid like the plague, if you want to try their network go with smarty they use 3's terrible network, but at least it's only a 1 month contract, unlimited is only £20 too

London SE14 Three Mobile  
I'm with three network for the last 7 years, and got 3 contracts with them. I had a technical issue with my HTC One x recently and when contacted Three, without explaining things they transferred the call to HTC, saying the manufacturers handle the repairs. It was not the case in the past.
Anyhow phone was collected on 7th of October and they said it would be returned in 5 days.
Even after one week I didn't receive my handset. Spoke to Three/HTC without any luck. Sent 2 emails and a letter to Three but still they could not solve the problem. They didn't bother to provide me with a loan phone even.
Three wanted me to request for a compensation from HTC. But i didn't sign up with any manufacturer to ask for a compensation or deal with them. It's Three who should coordinate with them to make sure that they provide with the service that they promise.
The phone was finally delivered on 31st of October, that's after 24 days.
Well, what sort of a service is that.
On top of that I received a letter from their Director of Customer Services to say that I should take this issue up with Ombudsman Services since they couldn't resolve my issue.
I was with Vodafone, and thereafter with T-mobile before joining Three. The only reason for the switch over was Three was much cheaper, but now I realize that's a big mistake.
Although they're cheap, their Customer Service is really horrendous, and their network coverage is also very poor even in London.
I would never recommend any one to join Three, and also I have 7 more contacts among my family members with Three, and would make sure they switch to another network when their contacts are up for renewals.

Uxbridge Three Mobile  
I am so disappointed in three and it's only been 1 day. I tried to upgrade my husband's account to change the plan and pay for a new phone as well.
They said it was impossible and I had to start a new contract for 41.00 for 2 years to get the phone I wanted for my husband. Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge for his bday. They did a credit check and approved a 2 year contract with 14 days cooling off period.

The signal service has been so poor that I called to complain and was told to upgrade to a 4G phone and plan for free, and I could cancel the other contract.

They said they had to run another credit check. I complained that they only did one 12 hours ago but they insisted they had to do it again.

Yesterday was glowing I was told and today I did not meet criteria. No leisure vessel in my driveway since last night so very upset.

Yesterday I was told there was a popup saying my cretit was exception and they offered me a free tablet with a data contract for 9.00 a month.

Today, after 3 hours on the phone and 4 people I feel angry, screwed and bitter.

They have damaged my credit for no reason and lied to me about my options.

Literally we have 2 bars by the south facing window and 0 in any other room.

1.5 years ago I signed a contract for monthly payments sim only. Unfortunately, the network signal is weak and disappears without a reason, so I decided to break the contract. It was a subscription of 12 pounds a month. 2 bills before deciding came for the amount of 27 and 29 pounds. After the break the contract I got a bill for 62 pounds, with no connection was doing that were on the bill, and some of them were double-counted. Every second voicemail was counted as a minute. I do not recommend, and he never would use the services of this thieving company. I advise everyone to be careful.

This company has gone from one I used to recommend to people to one I now say to stay far away from. This isn't going to be pretty so lets list all my complaints.

1. Customer services - horrendous & you'll have a hard job understanding what they're saying! If you have any issues, they are completely clueless and insist on reading from a scripted set of questions. 1* rating is too good for them - it should be ZERO.

2. Pricing - they've gone from one of the best (& cheapest) to one of the most expensive. and this cop out CR*p with discounts by direct debit?? Utter rubbish & Tosh. Where they've picked up this practice from, God only knows! Also guaranteed price RISE every year??? Seriously, read their t&c and you'll see..
Also, their contract range is poor & expensive compare to other providers. Serious lack of flexibility to tailor one to your specific needs, so if you end up on the wrong one, they wont allow you to go to a cheaper one, it's always a more expensive option.
And that means you're stuck paying silly prices for up to 2 years!

3. Coverage - zero 4g coverage. 2/3g coverage has gone from good to patchy & pretty much non existent indoors! Tried the phone on different networks and they're all fine so it's a 3 issue.
And 4g?? They paid billions to use the airwaves yet most people don't get it! All the customers get are bigger bills!

4. Product range - Again, compared to others, POOR and expensive - especially on the lower range products. And their tablet selection? If you love apple, you're laughing.. otherwise, atrocious.
Very expensive & all price plans are pitiful.

I'm sorry, but after being with them for many years, I won't be once my current contract ends.
I can't think of any good points anymore for a company which used to be so great...

I would seriously think twice before opting to use them.

I don't get any service from three since I don't have any signal on my phone. Can't make any calls, can't text, can't use data either. Just have red no signal thing all the time. Have now idea what I am paying for! Tried to go to a local three store- useless. Report network issues almost daily- never heard anything back from them! Not sure how they legally exist for taking money and not providing any services. What a scheme! Three Sucks!!!

Essex Three Mobile  
Oh my the worst company ever. I bought a mobile dongle service to be used abroad in specific countries. It worked from Manchester to London but not beyond. I struggled switching it on and off trying to get it to work whilst abroad with no joy. On return to UK I cancelled the contract - with unbelievable difficulty. Then when final bill arrived they charged me £35 for using the internet. I couldn't understand it and still don't. I argued for several days but they insisted regardless of whether I used it or not I obviously had it on and needed to pay. I still can't get over it. Then to top things up. I sent my sons phone in for repair. The repair service removed the sim card and couldn't work out what they did with it. I ordered a new sim from three and had to pay £5.11. I nearly collapsed other providers replace them for free. There must be a 20K% markup on that bit of plastic. Would never recommend three to anyone. I would give zero stars if it was possible. Telephone customer service an absolute shambles (if you can get through).

These guys have been quietly taking money from my account for a service which they cannot actually provide. I had this router from when it was Relish. I thought that it was cancelled but I was wrong. Now when I tried to reconnect last week I was eventually told that there was no 4G available in my area. Then they tried to sign me up to 5G and wanted my card details etc. I checked on their site and found that there is no 4G or 5G mast in my location and would I like to be contacted when it eventually comes around! I have cancelled the direct debit myself and immediately go an email saying that I had not replied to previous emails about the Direct Debit cancellation?? These guys are liars and thieves.They even have the front to complain when you stop them from stealing your money!!!!

I went into the Three store in Lewisham. Arrogant staff who were not very helpful and did not provide good information.

First day I have finally got the router and finally managed to get it activated useless instructions provided by the staff at three store and with in the product its self. I had to find a way to contact customer service and talk to a human and not get thrown around the houses to speak to the right person. Waste of time.

Router is now finally working, signal is rubbish even though it says my area should have a super strong signal.

I go on to the website to check coverage and I get this message: "We're really sorry. There's an issue with the network in your area at the moment.
We know that there's a problem with the service in your area and we're working on getting it fixed. Check back within 7 days for an update."

WHAT!? Not a good look, I've never been with Three before and was trying to look for an alternative to a crappy internet service currently provided by Sky over land line.

Thankfully I ordered online and have a 14 day returns period. Something to take note of if you order in store is that you don't get the 14 day return option so make sure you order online if you are going to try their home broadband so if it's rubbish like mine you can return. Will still trial it for the next 14 days and update if anything different from the above otherwise I will be returning everything.

Overall so far, waste of time and effort, not happy...

I am so frustrated This service does not provide what is promised the broadband speed is rubbish and so loading now tv, itv hub, Netflix etc Is difficult and almost impossible. I have just spent 45 minutes on the phone trying to get some satisfaction and was passed around and kept waiting until the broadband section was closed. This is the third time I have complained.

Unethical Standards of CEO & Executives of Three

I'm on the sim rolling monthly One Plan of Three network. I signed up in winter 2013. I was assured it was for an indefinite period, with no end date and for as long as I wanted. I signed the monthly plan of £18 unlimited data, unlimited tethering, 2000 mins, hundreds of texts.

On 5th Nov 2014, I received a text from Three network, "Hello. We need to speak to you about changes to your plan. Please contact us free on 08003583429 to speak to our dedicated team." I spent almost 45 mins trying to get through to Three to ask what was going on? They evidently were besieged by other callers wanting to ask the same. All I got was bubblegum pop music, so I went to a Three store in London's West End. The store manager revealed that on Fri 31st Oct, 2014 news came down from on high - the CEO Dave Dyson and executives - that those of us who'd signed up for the unlimited data and unlimited tethering under the One Plan should be instructed that our Plan was no longer available to us - even though we'd signed for an indefinite and unlimited period. The rug was to be pulled from underneath us - whether we liked it or not. We were now to be charged more and be given less. If we didn't like it, we would be told to go elsewhere and our account would be terminated. We were not to be given a choice. The store manager also said that the CEO and executives knew this would result in numerous disgruntled customers and complaints, but he said "they don't care". He said he'd received many complaints from customers who'd received the same text as me, and was advising us all to complain to Three (he warned it'd make little difference as the instruction, to treat One Plan customers so abysmally, had come from the top of Three) and to also register complaints with Ofcom. He was very apologetic and said it was unethical and a blatant dishonouring of an agreement we'd all signed in good faith. He also said that it reflected very badly on him and his staff who'd acted in good faith when convincing me and others to leave our other networks/deals, and to move to Three's One Plan. The nearby customers all heard him speak openly and with no respect for Three's unethical treatment of customers.

Awful awful awful. They try to keep you on the line for as long as possible then tell you they need to transfer you. I explained that I needed to attend to my crying baby and asked that they quickly confirm if my account has actually been cancelled as I requested previous weeks ago. They make it very hard for you to cancel and then they tell you that you need to pay outstanding balance before they will cancel your account even though you no longer use the services or are even able to use the service. Really bad. Would not recommend and would not use again.
