Three stops charging for out of bundle usage for new contracts
In the past we have seen unlimited mobile broadband contracts that can end up with users being charged per MegaByte if they go over a fair usage level of perhaps 1GB in a month. Three in a drive to attract customers has removed this fear of unusually high bills, by committing to not charging for out of bundle usage.
Contracts are available with a 250MB bundle from £15 a month, which if you hit the limit can be topped up at a rate of 250MB for £2 or all you can eat that month for £5. Monthly contracts with an all you can eat data allowance start at £18 a month.
There is a big caveat before everyone gets a cheap Three mobile to act as a dongle for their laptop, and that is that tethering is not allowed on the all you can eat data plan, an add-on is required that will provide 1GB of data for use with a tethered connection.
