Three Contract change

CONTRACT CHANGE: From 15th May 2019 the rates in your plan for calls & SMS from ROI to EU are reducing to 23.37c per min & 7.38c (inc. VAT) respectively. If you have an add-on that gives you a rate for such calls or SMS, this rate will also be reducing. For more about these changes, see 3.ie/op31j8 From Three.


I remember the last time Three changes contracts you could break a contract and go sim only. I wonder if this is possible with above ?

I can be corrected here but i think its only if prices are increased that a contract can be cancelled....Open to correction tho.

I guess that makes sense. But a change is a change.

You can only cancel on an increase. Its in their small print

Changes required by law don't affect the contract

Any idea where in their small print?

My knowledge of contract law is a bit rusty, but any unilateral change to a contract .. is a change to what was agreed .. unless the contract specifically references that rates may go down etc.

So the EU are forcing the rate change but people can still cancel their contract with Three because of that? That seems harsh to the supplier.

I contacted them first thing Monday after I received the text. They said I cannot cancel my contract as it is for a decrease in rates, not an increase

Erm I didn't say that - that post came in after I posted , not sure why different order now . And I was talking in general terms - all contracts have to accommodate legislation .. otherwise people could be signing contracts for les than min wage, more than max hours etc. I was only raising a query on the contract change being to "lower value" element
