A rather large box arrived with us today, courtesy of Three UK. The surprise package was to signify the network's updated SIM-only plans, which have recently been re-vamped. We all love a bargain, and the prices are certainly pretty friendly towards heavy data users, as we see a reduction in the minimum cost of Three's "All You Can Eat" data plans. Customers can now pick up a SIM on a 30-day contract with unlimited data for as little as £12.50 per month. You also get 5000 SMS and 200 minutes as part of the deal, so the new deal shaves a few pounds off previous packages, though you also lose around 100 minutes.
So the number of minutes you need each month will dictate the plan you require. There are three plan options with nine price points, each with increasing numbers of bundled minutes.
The Ultimate Internet Plans range from £12.50 to £15.50 per month, all with the same All You Can Eat data and 5000 SMS. Included minutes range from 200 to 600 per month, and you get a discount if you take the 12 month contract instead of a 30 day deal. The One Plan is still very much in full affect and remains at £25 per month. Again, data and SMS is the same as previously mentioned but in addition you get 2000 minutes -- more than enough for most people I would imagine -- in addition to inclusive tethering.
The final option is the Essential Internet Plan, and these are designed for customers who are not so reliant on data consumption. prices range from £9.90 to 12.90 per month and data allowances are either 500mb or 1GB per month. Once again, voice calls and SMS varies depending on the package.
