New internet plan may make selling old mobile phone attractive
15 September 2010 — 6:51 PM
Consumers around the country may be tempted to sell an old mobile phone and pick up a new device with Three, after learning of the network's new pay-as-you-go (PAYG) plan.
From September 3rd, the company is instigating a new charging scheme that is designed to make mobile internet available to everybody.
Three claims to offer more than any other network for only £10 – 100 minutes, 3,000 texts and 500MB of data downloading.
In order to take advantage of either the £10, £15 or £25 plan, users simply need to sign up and allow their credit to do the rest.
William Ripley, director of voice at Three, says: "Every top up on PAYG automatically gives customers 150MB worth of internet usage. That's enough to browse 10,000 BBC.co.uk pages, 15,000 Facebook pages, [or] search Google Maps 300 times."
A recent poll by YouGov found Three to be the top provider of mobile internet, beating its rivals in all but two of the 12 categories.
