Why choose Three Broadband?

It can be difficult to choose between broadband deals, so here’s everything you need to know at a glance.  


Pros

  • 5G speeds - If you can get it in your area, Three can deliver superfast speeds that are speedier than most cable and fibre broadband packages
  • No landline - There’s no need to have a landline for the 4G or 5G Hubs, which means your setup cost will be cheaper and you won’t have to pay for line rental
  • Immediate setup - No engineer visit is needed to get you up and running. As soon as your router arrives, you can get online
  • 14-day money back guarantee - If you don’t like Three Broadband after two weeks of using it, you can return your hub and get your money back

Cons

  • Mobile broadband only - Three only offers mobile broadband packages. In some areas, traditional cabled broadband would give you a much steadier connection
  • Router compatibility – There's a chance you can’t control your router through your device or browser if it’s not supported by Three
  • No phone bundles – There's no information about bundling your mobile service with your broadband for a cheaper package, which is unusual considering Three is a well-known phone provider
