200mb of free data monthly, in 60 countries, thanks to 3!

2 posts in this topic

Since mid June, your mobile price plan has magically got better, and your data + texts + calls are now the same price / same inclusive as back home in blightly! But what about elsewhere in the world, or if you’re on an uber-cheap plan without data?

3 UK recently launched a new price plan. Amazingly, this comes with 200mb of free data for free every month, covering both 3G and 4G, across 60 countries! (If you go beyond your free 200mb, and want to keep using it, you’ll need to top up and pay them some money)

The 60 countries covered are the Three “Feel At Home Countries, which includes USA, Australia, France, Spain, Brazil, Hong Kong and Singapore. The full list, including all the EU countries now covered thanks to our MEPs beating up phone companies for us.

Given how much most UK mobile phone plans charge to roam to places like the USA or Australia, this is an excellent deal, especially at free! 200mb won’t go very far streaming stuff or heavy web browsing, but it’s more than enough for WhatsApp and Google Maps whilst travelling, for example.

Personally, I have my Three sim normally in a dual-sim phone, and I use it until the free data runs out, then switch to another sim. I gather their business model assumes you’re not that organised… But for me it works well, and could do you too! It’s valid for phones, tablets, and mifi hotspot devides.

If you want to get one of these free sims with free data, you need to head to: 

https://www.three.co.uk/Free_SIM_MBB/Order

and fill out the form. A few days later, when the sim arrives, pop it in your phone/tablet/etc. Make sure you’re on the 3internet APN (and not the three.co.uk one), then send your browser to:

https://www.three.co.uk/freedata

to finish the registration process. A minute or two later, you’ll have your 200mb free per month! +++

I don't travel as much as some on here, but am pretty well travelled, all for pleasure rather than business these days, but I've been on Three for many years, I pay £12 a month and have unlimited data, you've been able to use it in a lot of the world for years with the Feel At Home deal.

 

Don't know why anyone that travels would be on any other network, people never used to believe me when I just used my phone as normal in other countries, they'd warn me I'd be getting a huge bill for using data until I explained to them that I wouldn't.

 

Never had any issues whatsoever.
