    Default Three Data Sim deals

    Is anyone using any of their deals? I am looking to use a SIM for tethering to a Mi-Fi router but also want to use it when holidaying en France. They specify that you need an "Advanced" deal of around £14 for 12gb data but that only seems to be on a yearly Pay Monthly contract. Fine but I only want to use it over our sailing season !

    Did you contact them and ask if they have more options than that one?

    Get a Gift Gaff. I have a basic £5.00/month recurring that I can top up when going abroad. Beware, though, if you get the wrong package the price of extra data can be costly.

    I'm with Three for my phone and I get 600 mins, unlimited messages and 8gb of data which I can tether to my devices anywhere in Europe. Usually this is plenty for weekends away on the boat, using my phone to connect to Ipads and the internet TV box, but if I get low on the odd occation I can buy another 4gb for £5 which isn't bad going.

    This is a sim only deal and costs me £10 a month

    I have a mifi for the boat using 3, i have that little Huwaei thing which works as expected.
    I think I'm on something like 20GB a month for £12 which includes the netflix free bandwith offer.

    I had to ask for it though, was not an advertised offer.

    Three Mobile PAYG data only SIM. 24gb for 2 years. £60 from 3, £42 - £44 from Amazon or Ebay. Fit and forget. If it runs out sooner, just buy another. theres also a 12GB version usually about £30 which lasts 12months. Works fine in my MiFi gadget.

    Watch the small print about long term overseas use (roaming) on these cards though as there is a fair use restriction, as there is on almost any deal.

    Is it just us? I have a three data sim. For the first year or so everything was fine but for the last few years whenever I'm abroad data rates seem to be at a crawl. First mate has found the exact same thing. I keep meaning to cancel mine. Customer service is terrible indian call centres: the stores are useless. They can sell you stuff but they can't fix, change or cancel anything.
