Three: The Youngest Becomes The First

ThreeThree, considered as the youngest network in the United Kingdom is shaking the market the most in terms of its potential in revenue and market share.

Technically it is the youngest network having been founded in 2003 only. Compared with EE, which is composed of two other networks previously the second and the third oldest network, which are T-Mobile and Orange; Three is definitely the last in the brood.

It is also known to offer 3G and 4G services only. Many say it goes to show that its age in the industry is a match to the limited offers it can provide. Other network providers have a vast amount of capacity across different levels of connectivity. It is said that even its 4G network was only made possible through EE’s involvement. 

 

Big Group

Having said that it’s the smallest in the market, Three, however is part of the Hutchison Whampoa group which will leverage it to become a market changer. It is this backing that Three UK will be able to see a bright future ahead of it.

The network of Three US is focused on data prioritising 3G standard being data-capable. It has built a voice-focused GSM standard 2G capabilities. Compared with other networks where their 2G is a back-up, Three only has 3G and 4G. Only a partnership agreement with EE makes it possible for their customers to downgrade to 2G coverage when it’s an option.

 

 

Only 4G

Given that Three can offer 4G, having a small network capacity for this creates frequent congestion for users of the connection. The Telco was the last to hop into the 4G LITE offers in the UK. Not helping in the congestion is the 4G data with no extra cost, giving Three’s subscribers an advantage. You can inquire using the Three contact number 0844 381 5179 for more details on existing plans and packages.

What the other network players in the UK have done is introduce 4G as a premium service while dropping the 3G offers almost entirely. The LITE with cost and limit made many think about what Three has to offer.

What Three offered early on in a campaign is to give LITE connections to all its customers with no restrictions nor additional pay. The All-You-Can-Eat data plan made millions of users switch to Three. The unlimited 4G data was too tempting to resist. Even tethering was part of the no cap deal until it was drawn back in the form of tethering allowance later on. The current customers on top of the new ones have put Three where it stands today, among the older ones in the mobile Internet market.

Its 4G network operates mainly using the 800MHz power. Riding on EE’s 1800MHz spectrum, Three’s coverage has vastly improved. Now Three will be able to widen up its network strength for its many subscribers who are always wanting and expecting best coverage possible. These subscribers definitely deserve nothing but the best – always.
