Seriously Three, do you think this is worth 70 Euro's per month on your mobile broadband package ?

I want out, I do not want to pay for this dirt service, when I threatened to cancel before I was threatened with debt collectors , you bully your customers........ 

I get 20-30 Mbs during the day but it's useless in the evening when it's needed the most. That's some crazy contention. 

4G was supposed to offer much faster speeds and suffer far less contention.

Three is a disgrace.......people beware.

This is what I call acceptable but it just goes to show the severe contention (shown in the pics above ) in the evening which is completely unacceptable.

Three, please sort this out !!!

You signed up for €70/mo when €20/28 days give you far more data for so much less money? Yikes. 

Three cant fix it without removing unlimited data which would be suicide.

I was with O2 for several years until they were taken over by three.

Right now three, virgin, O2, and anybody else with a mobile network except, Voda, Eir and postphone, all share the same network.

The €20/28 deal is meant for phone use though, not powering a house with mobile 4G internet - of course everyone does that and sticks them into 4G routers and probably why the network is soooo congested :D

Yes, the reason I changed from 50 PM 150 GB to 70 PM 250 GB was the fact I was going through the data and Three were charging me the guts of 100 PM for going over by 2 GB. 

See you pay for bandwidth not speed, so if they give you 1Kbs then that's perfectly acceptable..........

Vodafone, Eir all give you I think only 30 GB on their broadband only package.

Anyway if I had to know then what I know now I would have had just got a 20 PM pay as you go sim and change it ever couple of months !!!!!!!

Lesson learned but either way it doesn't solve the contention problem.

Tonight not so bad but far from acceptable, but, at least netflix works.

So.

Everyone uses the same technology. Three give you unlimited(thats what most UEs use) or 250GB, Vodafone, Eir give far far less.


Its contended BY DESIGN. The fix is to slash everyones cap by 80%. That wont happen.

Thing will in prove once 5G is released as this will take the load off of 4G so speeds will improve.

Yeah they told us that about 3G, the same about 4G. They've only upgraded to 4G can't see 5G for years.
