Three UK Launches £5 International Mobile Calling Add-on

Friday, October 9th, 2020 (12:04 pm) - Score 13,128

Mobile operator Three UK has announced that Pay Monthly customers of their 4G and 5G network can now benefit from a selection of two optional new international calling add-ons, which cost from just £5 extra per month and make it cheaper to call people in 55 other countries.

The operator’s previous International Saver add-on did something similar, but it only covered about half of the countries that the new plans do. The first new plan, Call Abroad 100, gives you 100 minutes of calls to landlines and mobiles across 55 countries for just £5 per month, or you can take Call Abroad Unlimited for £10 to get unlimited calls.

The 55 countries include: Australia, Austria, Bangladesh, Belgium, Bermuda, Brunei, Bulgaria, Canada, China, Columbia, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Guam, Hong Kong, Hungary, Iceland, India, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Kuwait, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, MACAU, Malaysia, Malta, Mexico, Mongolia, Namibia, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Paraguay, Poland, Portugal, Puerto Rico, Romania, San Marino, Singapore, Slovakia, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Thailand and USA.

  4. Shaun McDonald says:

    Or just use done VoIP type system which doesn’t charge.

  5. Craig says:

    Would WhatsApp calling not be a better option?

    By the way is there anyway of being notified if I have had a reply for a comment on here?

    1. Thomas says:

    2. Huey says:

      This people don’t see African as part of the world when it comes to inclusions … The world to them is very selective. So please stop trying or stand forcing them to tell you the very obvious. We take what is thrown to us and ‘say thank you.

  8. Janet Williams says:

    Antigua & Barbuda is always left out it is far most expensive country to call, can three sort that out? You can do bermuda… why not

  9. Mark says:

    3 biggest useless company my girl friend has been getting rude call over a bill paid 3 months a go don’t trust them

  10. Graham77 says:

    A bit more expensive than Skype. Would be interested if it was £2 for 50mins. Yes, WhatsApp does cover most situations but not everyone in these countries has a data plan.

  11. MIke says:

    Ironic really because Smarty is owned by Three but their international call rates are way cheaper than Three. e.g. 3p/min versus 19.5p/min to call France.

  12. Yemi Adeyinka says:

    Why is Nigeria not included the international abroad calling benefit?please show courtesy, as there are also a lot of Nigerian on 3 network customers, I’ve been with 3 for many years now Thank you.

  13. Nathan Ellis says:

    You can provide

  14. Shkar Mahaydin says:

    What about Iraq

    1. Mike says:

      Yes if you can find a telephone that hasn’t been blown up.

  15. Riaz Khan says:

    All Africa countrys and middle East they only included hand pack countries were there businesses are like before these countries wore already in the list international free calls countries but know they have pay £5 extra money.

  16. Sergio says:

    Pit they do not include ONE African country.

    1. C J Mazura says:

      There is Namibia.

    2. Mike says:

      Do any of them even have telephones though?

  17. Eva Smagacz says:

    When I tried call abroad unlimited to keep up with my family in Europe, it turned out to be anything but straightforward. My expectation was, that just like with o2, I can just dial……..
    Alas, after paying for 1 month in advance, it transpired that you cannot JUST call abroad. First, the number has to be copied from the phone, then access number needs to be called followed by the number you just written on a piece of paper. This is 20 years old technology undistinguishable from calling cards from 80ties and 90ties.

  18. SarfrazAhmad says:

    Why Pakistan is not list

  19. Andrew says:

    It’s just an attempt to gain subscribers from the ethnic MVNOs (Lyca / Lebara / Vectone).
