5 months back, if I had to rate 3 mobile, I would have given them all stars. But now, their speed have come down drastically. They have become worse than a dial up connection. I am planning to change my provider. Please somebody suggest and alternative provider that provides good speed as well as good service.

I have been using a 3 dongle for the past 3 years and the connection has been simply great! Though at times I did face issues with slow speed, 3 is much better than other providers.. I will say. Might be it is the issue with the total coverage of the area. But on the whole, I am happy.

Peopleâs negative comment on 3 mobile broadband is something that has really upset me. Either these people have used the dongle the wrong way or it must the reason of poor network coverage. After being with 3 for more than 3 years, I must confess that I rarely or did not have any network coverage issue or speed issue. The speed was pretty good n areas there were low signals too. I am more pleased with 3 than my previous connection. Would surely recommend it to others.

Paying just £15, I am happy with the speed I get with 3 Mobile broadband connection. Unlike my previous connection and modems, this one is superb. I get good speed with 3 when other providers offer much less in my area. 3 cheers for 3!!!

I have been with 3 for two years. The initial few months with 3 were too fast and appreciable. Later, every thing turned upside down. For three months, there is no connection at all. Before this situation, I was able to use internet radio and real time gaming, with fair speed, and good browsing too. Before having the connection, I was told that, 3 broadband is always better while comparing with the other providers in the locality. I donât know what happened to the connection to reduce the speeds like this and why it is disconnecting regularly. I have made requests to the customer service and didnât get any reply.

My broadband connectivity with 3 Mobile Broadband is going a little worse. The facility that I have enjoyed in the early periods has been lost. Like that, browsing speed is going down when some downloading is taking place. I don't want to stop but I just wish to get the performance back, what I have enjoyed before. Anyway, in my opinion they are good so as to provide substantial services to a large number of customers. I think they will respond to my humble requests and provide better speed.

When I started with 3 apart from the busy period 5-9pm I could get online without too much hassle. However since Christmas 08 the time I spend trying to get online is unreal. 3 had an aggressive marketing campaign around then doing a deal of £99 for the dongle with 12 months usage of 1 gig a month. This obviously made a brilliant present for the nomadic youth giving total freedom - however yesterday (feb 17 09) I could not get online at all at 6pm, 7pm, 8pm and gave up. I am now looking for a fixed line supplier. I am so stressed out with this diabolical situation. When I am online the system keeps crashing halfway through my surfing. Enough is enough. I live in a large town where they claim a high signal strength? I strongly suggest that whilst £15 a month for 5 gig sounds great value - what use is it if you cannot get online?

I am with 3 and got a very good connection , it is very reliable but I just like to warn people out there, that the security for mobile broadband is not as good as you think. I have been registering my debit card for three to avoid the hassle of buying top-ups from the shops (I am on pay as you go). but unfortunately, after so many trials i give up, the 3 website always have an error when you want to register your debit card. I have called their customer service about this problem and they said that i need to try it again, so to avoid the argumentation, I just decided that i will just have to buy top-ups from time to time. but I was shocked after a week, when i found out that there is an unathorised cash withdrawal from my bank account, my bank says the withdrawal was in Canada, and i say whoaaa! I have been hacked. the only thing i remember is that I tried to register my debit card for top-ups and i was using my mobile internet during that time, and that was it, as simple as that. so for me I think mobile broadband is not safe for bank transanctions.

I have both fixed line broadband connection and mobile broadband service. I was recommended to take 3 Mobile broadband service when I was looking for a suitable, cost-effective mobile broadband package for needs. Dongle works fine with my laptop and I get good coverage in my area.Three is one of the best mobile broadband suppliers in the UK.

3 boasts that it offers high speeds using its Turbo technology. However, I get less than 1Mbps on most occasions. But their dongle is indeed good, and easy to install and use. Check whether you get good coverage, before you buy 3 mobile broadband package. Their customer support is decent.
