Best of all ,the company is continuing with their highly popular unlimited data deals which means customers have no worry how much data they are using, including unlimited tethering.
Three are the second network to offer unlimited 5G data after Vodafone announced their plans early in the month, however Vodafone offer a tiered speed setup where customers get unlimited data but capped speeds of 2Mbps on the cheapest, 10Mbps on the medium and only unrestricted on the highest priced.

The company have launched their first 5G Ready smartphone today in the Huawei Mate 20 X 5G which has a massive 7.2 inch display and triple camera on the back.
Three also announced that the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G and Xiaomi Mi Mix 5G will be added to the range shortly ready for the switch in later in the year.
This means anyone with a 5G Ready phone can continue to enjoy a great 4G+ network now, and automatically get access to 5G with an OTA update once the network is live.
Customers also continue to get a range of great services such as GoRoam for worry free roaming in over 70 locations, and Wuntu where you get savings every week plus easyJet savings for worry free boarding.
