SIM-only deals from £10 a month in Three’s January Sale
We’re four days into the New Year and the shops are awash with January sales and discounts enticing you to buy things you don’t really need.
If you received a new phone for Christmas, one thing you will need is a SIM-only deal and Three is offering a few bargains worth looking into like 4GB for a tenner or 30GB for £20. Three has broken the January sales mould by calling it the Winter deals.
The Winter SIM deals include three pay-monthly packages, the first gives you 4GB of data for £10 a month. With this you get all-you-can-eat minutes and texts on a 12-month contract. This is one of Three’s Essential Plans so you won’t get the added perks such as Go Binge, a Personal Hotspot or roaming outside of the EU.
It’s not the largest amount of data but is just enough to carry out your basic tasks. Apart from Asda Mobile’s current festive bundle, you’ll struggle to find this amount of data for a tenner a month.
12GB for £15 with Personal Hotspot
Next up is the 12GB Advanced Plan for £15 a month. This also comes with all-you-can-eat minutes and texts but has the added bonus of a 12GB Personal Hotspot, Go Binge, and roaming in 71 countries around the world.
The Personal Hotspot lets you use the data allowance in your tariff and connect to other devices. This could come in useful if you’re out and about and need to connect your tablet or laptop to the internet but can’t find a wi-fi signal. Or maybe you are feeling generous and want to let your friend connect to your data to upload their Instagram selfies, it’s completely up to you how you use it.
Three’s Go Binge feature is a streamer’s dream. If you choose to sign up to one of Three’s Advanced Plans you’ll get a separate unlimited data allowance exclusively for streaming videos and music from Three’s partner sites, including Netflix, TV Player, Soundcloud, Deezer and Apple Music.
You won’t affect the data in your current tariff but you will still have to pay for a subscription to your chosen streaming website.
If you have an iPhone or any other high-end smartphone, you’ll probably want to invest in a data heavy SIM-only deal to be able to use the handset to its full potential. You can now get your hands on a 30GB Advanced Plan from Three for £20 a month. You’ll also get a 30GB Personal Hotspot plus the other perks mentioned above like Go Binge and roaming in 71 countries worldwide.
For more flexibility Three has also included two SIM-only deals on rolling contracts in the Winter sale. They are slightly more expensive than their pay-monthly counterparts but you get the same Advanced Plan benefits and the freedom of not being tied into a contract.
For £20 a month you can get 12GB with all-you-can-eat minutes and texts and if you’re willing to pay an extra fiver a month you can get 30GB of data to use each month.
