I have strong signal in my area but the problem is the Huawei router is quite unresponsive. When it works its blazing fast, but after just a short time of idle, you need to keep refreshing browser page etc to get the router box to wake up and start moving again. Beware also.. Its not compatible with XBOX and so my son cant get updates for his system or games to run (three said they are working on it)and for this reason Ive had to keep with my old internet providers and am now paying two subscriptions. To sum it up.. Whole family been with three for donkeys years (for telephones) and truth is we really like them. Im sure in time these issues will get sorted, but for now, they are not a feesable home broadband provider.

Overall satisfaction/broadband speed/reliability -10.

There's Broadband "IS NOT FIT FOR PURPOSE"

Therefore, when they take your money, they are COMMITING FRAUD.

They don't care because they know that they cannot be touch.

Considering the amount of complaints, shouldn't Someone be held accountable.

How about the GOVERNMENT WHO GIVE 'THREE' THEIR LICENCE.

Why should customers have to deal the stress of complaining to the Ombusdman. Clearly, these Ombusdman don't work.

I received a TEXT FROM 'THREE' INVITING ME TO COMPLAIN TO THE OMBUSDMAN. ARE 'THREE' WORRIED.

Instead of complaining on these sites - as that doesn't seem to WORRY 'THREE' EITHER, perhaps some Legal minds/anyone that knows/expert in how to start a petition, or something, to have 'THREE's' LICENCE EVOKED.

I wouldn't wish threes broadband on my worst enemy

The only reason I havent cancelled it yet is because I had to pay £49 upfront. From day 1 I havent been receiving the service I pay for. Everytime I ring them they make some excuse about the service and that it will be better within 24 hours. I've had this since the first day turning it on and am still having it 2 months later. It disconnects several times a day (it says I was connect over 30 devices to it, yet with only 1 device connected most of the time my ps4 runs at less than 5mps, and thats on the rare occasion the internet is actually connecting to the router).

Bare in mind I live in the city centre, a place famous for good internet connection; yet nowhere in the house can I get more than half the way up the 'best connection point's. Even on window sills there is NO connection. Oh and btw being half way up is monumental as a vast majority of the time it is at about 10% up the bar...

If I was paying £10 a month I would still not be getting the service I paid for and I would cancel.

Before this I was with EE who's basic internet was a minimum guaranteed of 6mps (threes is 20mps I believe) and yet I was getting more consistent service with them.

I've regretted joining three since the day I started (I didnt cancel in the 14 day cancellation period because of the promises of it getting better, but it never has).

The customer service (the scripts they are given to read are fine and calming) but they have no idea what they are doing or saying and cant sympathize with you because they are ALL in Asia...

Absolutely disgusted with my experience within 3, I would rather catch coronavirus than have to see out the rest of my contract paying over £30 a month
Derby Three Mobile  
Sadly, I can only agree with many of the comments from others. Streaming crashing when another computer simultaneously in use. Speed both upload and download going to a crawl whilst streaming and pings increasing tenfold. Atrocious lack of technical knowledge by anyone, passing from one sevice agent to another who can only either suggest repositioning the router or resetting the router - both useless suggestions.

After months of phoning, I finally got a no-cost termination of my contract. Changed to Vodafone on their equivalent package and have no problems.

I wrote to the CEO's office to discuss not only the technical issues but the fact that 3 didn't deliver a replacement router on an agreed date (had to take a day off work). 3 wont accept this is a breach of contract. 3 pointed out that normally an early terminaton of contract requires the customer to pay a 40% penalty - what, 3 cant supply a minimum acceptable standard and expects customers to pay for early exit?!!!

Anyway, I have been offered £30 as a 'goodwill' gesture. I refused that and they upped it to £50 in full and final settlement. No thanks, I lost a day's pay and have had months of crap service and crap customer support. I am taking the complaint to the Ombudsmen, not for more money, but to hold these charlatans to account.

If you are trying to get out of a contract, keep on trying. Alos, log an official complaint as this sets the clock ticking for your, if you want, make a claim to the Ombudsman.

I am so frustrated This service does not provide what is promised the broadband speed is rubbish and so loading now tv, itv hub, Netflix etc Is difficult and almost impossible. I have just spent 45 minutes on the phone trying to get some satisfaction and was passed around and kept waiting until the broadband section was closed. This is the third time I have complained.

A one star rating is actually too good. The service is appalling in every respect: speed, reliability, connection and customer service. After me reporting them to the ombudsman they even had the gal to deny that they deliver a well below par service. I’ll take them to court for breach of contract.

Utter ****. In zone 2 central London, my closest mast is 100m away, and I cannot even get reliable 3G, let alone 5G, at peak times. Their customer service, the usual call centre drones, just repeat the same script over and over. Without doubt the worst service I have ever received from.any utility ever. DO NOT CHOOSE 3.

London SE14 Three Mobile  
WORST INTERNET PROVIDER EVER!.Joined Dec 2019, got Huwaie B535 4G Home Broadband, was amazing for first 2 weeks downs of around 25 to 30 Mbps, then it all went wrong, now Im at 1Mbps and sometimes 4 or 5 mbs, most of the time does NOT work.
Ive complained over the phone so many times, cant pay my bills,impossible to stream any tv, cant even watch youtube,if it does load it buffers all the time,and the bits it does play is totally grainy and blurred.
My 02 mobile phone used as a wifi hot spot (tethering) gives 37mbps and all works fine when my tv links to that, once back on 3 nothing works.
I was their biggest hero in Dec 2019, now the biggest hater of 3, should of done more research, i called them tonight to say im cancelling and wont be paying them another penny,ive taken screenshots of speed (with times and dates on) videos of the speedtest etc, all as evidence, i even had to drive to my bank to physically put money in to pay upcoming direct debits, because i could not get online to transfer from one bank to another, total joke.
My mobile phone is faster then 3 home broadband, but my data is only 2gbs so used that up in no time, so if your reading this thinking of joining people, then don't, what i tell you is the 100% truth of my experience, as of March 3rd 2020, there are still massive outages in the UK, in most towns, Manchester, London, Hull, Bristol to name a few, its been like this for weeks,and for some months, impossible to come home from work and sit down and watch netflix,impossible,3 is absolutely the worst isp ive ever know,was amazing in Dec 2019, now its dire, ive given them chance to resolve this issue,ive reset the router 4 times, gone through all the settings with 3, nothings made it better, they have a massive outage and their network is a total joke, please believe me this is a true honest review, i thought maybe its because they are upgrading their network from 4g to 5g, no its not, they are even having to switch servers on and off just to try and give customers some service, i know this because my speedtest keeps showing different variants of 3s names,its is beyond a joke, if you are with 3 and are experiencing this, then cancel your direct debit, stop paying, send notification to their uk head office,and any evidence you have of the speeds service etc (screenshots/videos etc)they cant charge you for a service they are NOT providing basic english law, if they send you an invoice for the remainder of the contract then sue them for all your losses,and stress and grief caused from them NOT providing a reliable acceptable internet service, that what i am doing,its a joke at the end of the day when my mobile phone is much, much faster then their dedicated 4g system

HULL Three Mobile  
I can only say the same as others have, 'how I wish I had read more reveiws. The broadband service is diabolical at best, can not connect, slow unusable, then I found if you add a DNS server manually it does change things, it seems the router does not do what it is designed to do, I.E route, so, go online and search for free DNS, pick a couple of DNS ip addresses and go in to the IP address settings in your PC / Laptop/ Phone etc click manual DNS and add some DNS IP addresses, this speeds up the broadband connection on a pc. It worked for me.
The three mobile broadband service is awful though, nothing can fix that.

BB24LX Three Mobile  
Oh, how I wish I had done more research and found this review page before I committed myself t a 24mth contract for Home 4G Broadband with Three. As with the high percentage of other reviews my experience of Three is abysmal. The broad band speed they advertised of 25 Mbps came in between 3-5 Mbps when I checked by my lap top. It’s like going back ten years with internet speed. The customer service as already mentioned by other reviews is terrible, you get sent to a call centre in the far east and get asked the same ridiculous question, which is very frustrating and you just end up going in circles. I eventually got them to admit that there was a problem and they admitted that there was too much demand in the area and that their system can’t cope. They have to their credit given me two months free of charge to compensate, and they admitted that the 5G upgrades they are doing to their system are causing the problems. It was clear to me that they know that there are problems on their system but just selling it to people anyhow. The other thing is that they don’t send you any record of your complaint and nothing is put on paper. I’ve been told that everything should be ok by the 26th march. I now have no internet in my flat, except one that it is so slow its infuriating and I can’t get another internet contract going because I’m locked into this one, it’s an atrocious service. If there are no improvement by then the only action I can take is to cancel by standing order, which in doing so I might face legal action. So, from my experience if anybody is contemplating to with Three, STAY WELL CLEAR OF THEM!!!

Avoid three like the plague.l cancel my contract, they are now trying to Bill me for a service I don't have.customer service is useless
Edinburgh Three Mobile  
I have written probably just one bad review in my life and only because it was really bad, this is the second one.
The first thing is their customer service. I have been using broadband from Relish for 4 years before Three took over. I have never had any problems with Relish. I used to have nearly the full signal.
I live near Holborn and not so long ago my signal dropped to the minimum and my internet basically doesn’t work.
When I made a decision to move here, due to some circumstances Relish was my only option and still is. I was basically dependant on it. Now, it caused me loads of troubles.
When I called the customer service, my call was transferred 4 times and they asked me the same questions. It was a mess. When finally somebody decided to talk to me, they were asking me some random numbers and information. It seemed like they had no idead what are they talking about. At the end I was told that my broadband is not registered and that I can’t be helped. RIDICULOUS!! Despite the fact I was paying my bills and using my broadband before. I gave up really frustrated and tried to call them again later.
This time I wasn’t transferred. Their support guy, who seemed like he knew was he was doing, managed to find my account without issues and started looking into the problem.

Not here comes the second part. I was told that one of the cell towers was removed and there is nothing he can do. Without ANY warning. No emails, messages NOTHING. What a disgrace to their customers!!! I have never experienced anything like that in my life. That’s how they value their customers. I asked to speak with somebody higher and I was told that it is not possible. It wasn’t his fault, so I didn’t want to vent my anger on him. Until now I am still struggling to find a replacement. I have already had some problems with Three before. Now, I am changing my mobile network too. I have heard some bad stuff about them from my friends and I was warned. I think I have learned my lesson. The most people I know have a different one or are changing their network.
I hope that this will help the rest of you who are still deciding to or not to go with this company and I strongly recommend to AVOID it. For some people it may work, but once you start having some problems, you can’t rely on them at all!!! It seems like you are secondary or none to them.

FELIXSTOWE Three Mobile  
I thought I would give Three broadband a try as our landline broadband contract is nearly due for renewal and we have had several week-long outages due to broken overhead phone lines.

The kit arrived quickly and was easy to install.

However the data speeds were very erratic.
At one point I was seeing 40MB/s+ download and 35MB/s upload speeds with an acceptable 36ms ping. Had the performance kept at this level it would have been brilliant as this outperforms our current FTTC broadband. But the above speeds were very much the exception. Without any change in the router location or obstructions, speeds would drop to less than 3MB/s with pings close to 100ms. Also, the system would not allow my son's XBox to download games or updates, throwing out an error message on every attempt. When I contacted Three technical, the only solution they could come up with was to force the router into 3G mode. At that point data was flowing at a snail's pace and it wasn't even possible to view BBC iPlayer.
I even tried a quality LTE Mimo external antenna as we are some way from the nearest mast. This did improve signal quality, but the speeds were still all over the place.
I didn't want to be stuck in a 2 year contract so decided to pull the plug on the trial within the 14 day cancellation window.
A shame really and perhaps if we were closer to a cell mast, it would have been more reliable. But it wasn't a workable solution for us.
By the way, I think you only get the 14 day cancellation option if you buy on line. Not from a store. So if you are thinking about Three Broadband, my advice would be to take out the contract on line, then you can test and reject it, if it isn't working to an acceptable level.
Customer service was OK throughout the whole experience, but at the end of the day the broadband just wasn't reliable or fast enough.

Skipton Three Mobile  
Three deliberately throttles internet speed and then uses the excuse there is maintenance happening in the area, if that were true all 3 customers would have slow or no network, yet my mobile speed tests at 11.4mbps yet my ai cube broadband speed tests at 1.4mbps with zero devices connected, shameful and I can’t wait for the contracts to end il never use them again their customer service team are arrogant as well when you show them this evidence

Cleethorpes Three Mobile  
Without doubt this is the worst broadband service I have ever used. I have a 2 year contract for HomeFi with a Huawei B535 Router and after 2 months of suffering dropped connection, slow speeds and unable to connect to internet I gave up and bought a Virgin package again. If you are thinking of taking a HomeFi contract Do Not Do It. You will not be happy with the service. The customer service is appalling, unknowledgeable, unhelpful and could not care less about the customer. I live in a 4G high signal strenth area with 5 bars on the router signal connection. When it works correctly it does so at 15-20 Mbps, the trouble is it only works correctly for minutes at a time then drops the connection, fails to reconnect and then when it does reconnect it runs at 15-20 Kbps, the speed of a tortoise. Restarting the router makes no difference. Netflix spends all its time buffering after the initial connection and is unwatchable so their Go Binge promise for Netflix is a lie. Bottom line is that I have thrown away over £500 on a 2 year contract that is absolutely useless for the purpose. Please learn from my mistake. Do Not Use Three.

Sheffield Three Mobile  
Finally cut ties with Sky after many painful expensive years. Loved the idea of broadband w/o a landline. Never used it otherwise. Really impressed for the first 3mths on 3's pay monthly home broadband deal, just to try it out. Easy setup and great fast reliable streaming at the beginning. Rarely dropped a stream for three months. So we decided to take on a 12mth contract. Another precaution because we didn't want to get 'trapped' in any more long life-sucking contracts. Of course customer service pushed real hard for us to go for a 24mth contract instead. But I stood firm and said "No thanks!". So we stuck with the 12mth one. Well since the contract started, streaming speeds have slowed and become very inconsistent. We counted the stream drop during TV programs at least 10x during one day. That was on every device used at that time with our Huawei 4G Router 3 Pro, supposedly able to handle up to 65 devices at once. We sometimes use up to 4 at the same time. That's it. We even moved the router around and saw some improvement but only for a short while. I have a mobile with 3 and it's signal and stream are much more reliable. Why is that?? I don't hold much hope out for any vast improvement in the coming months and 3's customer service has proved to be frustrating and unhelpful. I wish somehow we could get out of it. Highly unlikely I know. But on the bright side at least it's not for 24mths. We definitely will chose someone else when this nightmare ends. I highly do NOT recommend 3 for home broadband to anybody. There are far more reliable ones out there.

River Three Mobile  
I got mobile broadband to save money in comparison to fixed line. Speeds were OK at first, but for the past year I've been getting mostly less than 2Mb and often less than 1Mb, with pages taking ages to load, and that's in the middle of a large city. I often have to use my phone to get online. Tried once or twice to contact Three, but the script is always the same, have you tried this, that...Yes I have, I'm an intelligent person and know how to troubleshoot connection speeds. I've now given up and got fibre broadband, which is not much more than Three are charging me. I'm still in contract but I don't care, I just want out. Think carefully before you go for mobile broadband for your main home connection, other much faster connections are now not much more expensive.

Utterly useless. Only positive is free Netflix streaming-if you are lucky enough to have a good signal. Would never recommend three.
London Three Mobile  
Got the mobile broadband for a 12months contract. It's been poor for the last 6 months and when I finally decided to cancel they managed to talk me into it again promising a new device type after a dozen hours wasted on customer service. They sent me the same device with service beeing as poor as before. The mocking they handled my situation is incredible, all they've done is to waste my time again and again. Just now I told the guy in the live chat I just want to cancel and not waste any of my time, he asked to speak on the phone, told him I can't and I gave permission for somebody else to finish the process. They called the other person just to waste another 5 minutes with details verification and conclude that nothing can be done without the main person on the contract on the phone. I have never heard of anything similar before, Customer Service seems like a bunch of incompetents running a scam from their basement. Insane mocking and disrespect to me as a customer. Of course, I'll have to pay the full contract anyway,no matter how bad the service was for the usage period. They don't even have a capable technical team, when they called to troubleshoot my device they asked 0 tehnical questions just basic, irelevant settings matters. Insane that this company is running a bussiness in UK. Never felt more disrespected on my own dime. Don't get the service.

This is the worst service I have ever had from ANY company. They didn't take payments (I turned it off as I already had Virgin broadband which was expiring at the end of 2019) I received a mail saying that I was being suspended on the 8th Jan and called them to arrange payment on the 15th (my first payday after Christmas). They said that they would and when I called them to make a payment (£70) they told me the account t was cancelled and I owed then the years payment. I offered to pay on in full to resolve ans couldn't have been more flexible but they are AWFUL. Avoid at all costs. I am currently looking at legal action and the ombudsman is backing me.

I bought 3's Huawei 4G mobile wifi unit on 9 January 2020. Back at my location in Acton the download speed never got above 2Mbps in the first 48 hours and there were losses of connection about every 5 minutes. When I went back to their Westfield store at 18:00 on 11 January they filed a Customer Technical Request and said that their technicians would call me within 48 hours. By 19:00 on 13 January I had not received a call from 3's technical services. None of my regular download speed checks had got above 2 Mbps in the intervening 2 days, and there were still losses of the connection every 10 minutes. I explained the problem to shop staff. They could only let me wait 10 minutes until the manager had time. I explained the problem to the manager. He called 3's customer relations department. We both sat there for 15 minutes waiting for 3's customer relations department to answer. I was then asked to explain the problem again, told that my contract could not be cancelled, and told to wait while I was passed to the technical support department. When connected, I was asked to explain the whole problem again. The technical support person then said he was passing my call to the customer cancellations department, as he could not decide on a cancellation himself. I declined to explain the problem yet again, and demanded a written confirmation of my cancellation. The technical support person said the customer cancellations department would call me back in about 48 hours.
I have cancelled the direct debit. 3 is withholding my money with insufficient grounds.

Download speeds are incredibly unpredictable; very occasionally you might get 20mbps, but you usuallyget 0.5-2mpbs. Customer Service will have you move the router around, change Wifi frequency etc., but it does nothing to help the really poor consistency of their services.

What I really don't understand is my mobile provider Smarty use the Three network, and my phone gets far greater download speeds than the router sat in the window. I hotspot more than I use the Router now, which begs the question why bother paying for the service in the first place.

Easy to choose them Relish/Three in the first place due to their quick delivery/set up times, but in the end really not worth the hassle.

I thought this would solve my BB problems as i live in the countryside.
The signal drops & rises,surely i should be able to get a reliable 20meg d/load speed.Some times it drops to around 3-4 meg d/load.I need to shop around once my contract is up.

Bolton Three Mobile  
Lovely little cube for 4g internet. However, crap is all I can say. Best I've ever had was 10mb, usually it's not above 3mb. I live in a flat, however it sits on the window sill and if go further in to my flat, I can get 38mb on my mobile which is on Tesco mobile (using O2 network). When I bought it, 5g was rolling out the followimg week, that was in July and 6 months later, I'm still getting 1mb of 4g.
Cannot wait until my contract finishes. P.s. this was written on my mobile data as the wifi waste slow

These guy's are useless, customer service is ok if u speak Indian/Pakistani. But i am English and have yet to speak to an English employee of 3. Everything is lag lag lag with it no matter where is put it. I wish i never got this cube, yes alexa is ok thats it. Avoid it folks its useless for anything apart from browsing the web, streaming is a nono same as online gaming

Belfast Three Mobile  
Very unreliable and if you plan on using this for online gaming it will perform poorly if anybody else is connected. 2 or 3 streaming devices is enough to faulter three and their broadband.
