Three customers can get the latest breaking news straight to their phone

Mobile phone owners who recycle their device and switch to a new model with the network Three can now read the Times for free.

The newspaper's website, which can now only be viewed with a subscription, will be available to the company's customers for no charge for three months.

Once the period has expired, customers who top up at least once every 30 days will continue to enjoy all the latest news and views direct from the portal to their mobile.

Alys Mathew, head of customer propositions mobile broadband at Three, says: "Three's network has over 97 per cent population coverage for 3G services, so we're happy to expand the reach of the Times' online readership across the country to more mobile devices."

The good news for those planning to recycle a mobile and sign up to a deal with Three is that they have some time to complete the process, with the offer running until March 31st.

A recent poll by YouGov found the network to be the UK's top provider of mobile broadband services for the second time in a row.

Julie Snape, head of marketing at Envirofone, says: "If you need to have your fix of news every day, this offer will definitely appeal to you. You could trade-in your old phone for cash and then upgrade to a new model and read the news whenever you like."
