Three UK Launch 5G Unlimited Broadband and Apple TV Bundle

Thursday, September 3rd, 2020 (8:40 am) - Score 15,515
ee apple tv 4k

Mobile network operator Three UK has partnered with Apple to create a new bundle, which combines their 4G and 5G based unlimited use Home Broadband service with an Apple 4K TV device that also includes one year of free Apple TV+ access (usually £4.99 per month).

The prices for this bundle start at just £27 per month on their 4G based Home Broadband service, which then rises to £34 if you take their 5G based plan on a 24-month contract term. Both come attached to a £29 one-off upfront cost. Sadly, this offer price is only available to new customers (expect it to become £29 (4G) and £36 (5G) from 16/09/20, once the offer ends).

A spokesperson for the operator said, “With Three’s 5G Home Broadband reaching speeds of up to 200Mbps, there is no waiting around. This super speedy package not only provides access to live TV, original shows and movies from Apple TV+ in stunning 4k, but customers can also get it delivered the next day. Meaning there is no need to wait for an engineer visit and no landline required – simply plug in and play.”

One obvious caveat here is that Three’s 5G network currently has very limited UK coverage, although it is now starting to expand a bit more rapidly than earlier in the year. Separately, it’s worth pointing out that Three UK’s unlimited data SIM only (4G and 5G) plan is currently being offered at the reduced price of £11 per month for the first 6 months (£22 per month thereafter) of a 24-month term.

    Shame 3’s coverage has gone completely in my local area and London when visiting.

    Used to get around 40 down now it’s at best 5, London is a complete write-off lucky to see double digits usually 1-2. They have the longest continuous spectrum of 5G but launched 5G with coverage the size of a postage stamp in each city.

    Was a 3 customer for 10+ years, but they have got worse and worse – delighted me and 10+ family members have all left them.

    Proceed with caution and try on a PAYG sim first before making an expensive mistake.

    1. Avatar Bill says:

      I agree entirely.

  2. Avatar Matthew says:

    Seems a lot off people are getting behind the AppleTV now.

  3. Avatar Gareth says:

    I thought they always promoted “5G at no extra cost”? So why is there a price difference between 4G and 5G?

    1. Mark Jackson Mark Jackson says:

      This is for their Home Broadband division (formerly Relish Wireless), so there are often some different considerations in terms of bundled hardware options etc.

    2. Avatar William says:

      Yes that’s true. I find that there not as good as they used to be and very limited on the 5g

    3. Avatar Andy says:

      My thoughts exactly. Three are full of shit. The fact that it’s home broadband should be irrelevant, they as a company promised “5G at no extra cost”

  4. Avatar Neb says:

    No faith in mobile broadband for a home connection.

    Does anyone know if mobile broadband customers can leave their contracts if the 5G home broadband doesn’t deliver the advertised (guaranteed) speeds like on the BT fixed home broadband?

    1. Avatar Neb says:

      Should add – not sure if providers like BT Groups EE are advertising guaranteed on 5G (don’t expect them to).

      Question above is principally can I get out of a 5G contract is the connection is unreliable/pants under delivered on advertising speeds?

  5. Avatar Brian ward says:

    I have 4G unlimited mobile on 3. I live in rural Lancashire and struggle to get a decent signal. My neighbour has 3 4G broadband. He struggles to get two bars signal, and if it drops to one, forget streaming anything. 3 really need to sort their 4g customers issues before selling packages for 5G broadband, which will probably be as useless as their 4g systems have declined to lately

    1. Avatar Mike says:

      Tried using an external antenna?

    2. Avatar Buggerlugz says:

      Trust me, even if you got a great signal, I it’d be nothing to write home about.

  6. Avatar Buggerlugz says:

    Great! Another reason for Threes already contended service getting hammered by yet more customers!

    Three are good at one thing providing a pretty good signal from their masts! Unfortunately the same can’t be said over their back-haul and core with too little bandwidth for too many customers. Month after month the speed consistently continues to fall and the latency continues to increase because of this.

    Case in point, I’ve apparently got a 12 hour download on Three’s 4g+ service just to update an Xbox game. Not ideal in 2020.

    Three can’t even maintain anything stable on they’re 4g so it don’t fill me with any confidence with their 5g offering.

    Marketing gimmick then. Nothing to see here.

    1. Avatar Fabrizio says:

      I couldn’t agree more: they over promise but seldom deliver. The pings and jitter are atrocious.

    2. Avatar Buggerlugz says:

      Well my Xbox game installation just finished. So it only took 8.5 hours…… :/

  7. Avatar MattB says:

    I have been using a monthly “Smarty” sim which is Three with a B535 Huawei router and an external antenna and its a good solution when you dont want to be tied into a 12 or 24month fixed line solution. This also works as a really good mobile solution for use in a motorhome.
    I look forward to the days of 5g in the midlands.

    1. Avatar Pezza says:

      I agree as I’ve been using Smarty in my mobile for a while now, as a home broadband service if you can get the signal it would be great.

    2. Avatar Simi says:

      I travel a lot in my motorhome. I live in it 7 months of the year. I have Smarty and Voxi sims and I always get something good from either one wherever I go.

      PAYG too which is good so I agree with your comment 100%

  8. Avatar James says:

    To be honest speeds is whack on three at peaktime 30 meg at most offpeak 80meg but im not moaning only paying £8 a month for unlimited data currently sim card installed in my tplink 4G router been using this well over 1 year. (Usage says 8988GB) downloaded since January 1st 2020.

    This has saved me well over 400+ pounds a year for not having virgin media or Bt

    Three has changed their frequencies about so if you’re experiencing issues try setting your modem back up from from scratch as when they put up the new mast in my area my ping hit 90 plus, download speed was as low as 2 Mbps so I put my modem back to factory settings I found channel 3 suits me best download tops out at 70 Mbps upload is now 4.7Mbps as measured through my PS4 now most importantly for me my ping will go as low as 5m/s average ping is mid 20’s ..faster than virgins top package can offer at best, which was very rare was 27 m/s , if you use your own modem make sure it’s up to date .as it needs to be able to combine the signals together to get your optimal speeds .lastly but not least , three’s network is 100% reliable .. ALWAYS ON unlike Vodafone EE O2 by virgin and all the rest they all have gone down during lockdown and after , they’re still going down yet three has been quietly performing in the background at a fraction of the price what’s there to complain about , I noticed a speed quota of 200Mbps may I just say I watched a video where a londoner achieved 350Mbps on 5G for download ,speed test.net was used

    If its apple I’m not interested

  12. Avatar Robert says:

    I have strong 4G Signal with 3 yet during the peak demand times internet speeds fall below 1mb/s making it impossible to use internet
    This has been a recurring issue this past 4months, obviously this is a congestion problem.
    Why does 3 Network not put right the current problems with their 4G coverage before boasting about eye watering 5G speeds

    1. Avatar Buggerlugz says:

      Because they don’t care. They’re more concerned with selling more customers shonky broadband packages and locking them in for 24 months.

    2. Avatar Stephen Wakeman says:

      Because boasting about 5g speeds will earn them more customers.

      Sorting out network contention and backhaul issues would cost them money. Getting more customers makes them money.

      One costs money.
      One makes money.

      That is the extent of the thinking that applies to this situation.

  13. Avatar Funbuss says:

    Apple TV great for streaming your home videos from your Mac to telly

  14. Avatar Mark says:

    I wouldn’t touch Three with a barge pole ever again. Can’t wait for my contract to be up next month! I can hit 130Mb on their network at 2AM in the morning when everyone is asleep. I struggle to hit 1Mb come 9AM in the morning as the congestion rises, absolutely useless! The TBB forums are awash with similar complaints

  15. Avatar Web Dude says:

    I’m using Smarty on the 100 GB for £15/month deal (was a limited offer for “new” customers but they allowed me to switch to it). Have few complaints except for the apparent IP changes that can take place in seconds, unless it’s a quirk of my browser settings (using web hosting which keeps complaining my IP has changed and requires a login again).

    Anyone else getting similar problems, sometimes lots of users may be behind IPS level NAT mechanism to use the same IP v4 address for multiple end users… and therefore may cause problems with internet -> “current IP address” connections.

    1. Avatar Web Dude says:

      NB should be “ISP level NAT”
