Our Product Recommendations for Three Mobile
If you are looking for a service to use on your travels we recommend the basic Pay As You Go modem.
If you are looking to use 3 Mobile Broadband as your main home connection, and anticipate heavy internet usage, then look at a contract, as data usage rates are cheaper.
As soon as you get your dongle, test it during peak working time hours and in the early evening, at the principal location where you will be using it. If it's not good enough, return it under the Returns Policy, remembering not to use the modem for more than three consecutive days otherwise you will invalidate the Returns Policy.
If you can't get a good signal, either try another mobile broadband provider or get home broadband.
Three Mobile Broadband Returns Policy
You are allowed to try out the mobile broadband modem to see if it works in your area. If the connection performance is not satisfactory, the modems can be returned to 3 within 14 days of delivery, but the modem and SIM pack must be returned in "as sold" condition.
For Pay Monthly modems, you may be charged for any usage of 3 services you made before returning the modem. You will be charged at 3's standard rates.
For Pay As You Go modems you must not have used the modem for more than three consecutive days as this will invalidate the Returns Policy. No refunds will be given for Top-Up vouchers or any remaining Pay As You Go credit.
Correct as at May 2010. See also mobile broadband returns policies.
