Three include free Internet in PAYG topups
Three have launched a new deal for their Pay As You Go (PAYG) customers that sees them receive 150 megabytes of free mobile Internet usage and free texts with every top up. It also includes free calls to other 3 customers, free Skype calls, free voicemail and free access to Windows Live Messenger. These free credits last for 3 months (90 days) from when you top up, even if you use up all your credit.
Existing 3 PAYG customers will also benefit from free texts and Internet access when they top up, however they may need to migrate on to the new 3Pay tariff to receive free calls to other 3 users.
"So often Pay As You Go customers are overlooked and aren't offered the same great value packages and perks as those who pay monthly. 3Pay will give customers access to a range of features that will last for 90 days, three-times longer than the other networks. In a groundbreaking move, our freebies don't stop just because a customer has used up all their credit.
We want to change mobile forever and with a network designed and built for the Mobile Internet, we can offer our Pay As You Go customers free internet and free internet calls with Skype, not just bog-standard text and talk bundles. All our Pay As You Go customers will get a 150MB mobile internet allowance. That's enough to check Bebo or Facebook over 100 times, view 200 web pages or send 1,600 twitters, every day for three months."Liz Richardson (Head of Pay As You Go), 3
If you exceed your mobile broadband usage, a 30p per megabyte (MB) charge will apply, however simply topping up online with another £5 credit will grant you another 150MB of usage.
