Three UK

Here in the UK the Pay-As-You-Go market has offered pretty standard pricing across most of the UK networks - that is until today. Three UK have sliced their PAYG prices which could well be perfect for BlackBerry 10 users. The new prices may not suit everyone but it all depends how you use your BlackBerry - however I suspect parents may well be taking a good look at this one for their children who pick up the BlackBerry Q5.

Simplified the new prices are as follows:

  • 3p a minute
  • 2p a text
  • 1p a MB of internet

Thomas Malleschitz, marketing director at Three said: "The number of complex Pay As You Go tariffs, Add-ons and options available is mindboggling. Consumers are forced into choosing where they want best value – whether that’s calls, texts or internet. Our new rates strip things right back to basics with a simple, clear and transparent rate for calls, texts and internet use that offers clear value across the board. It’s important to us that our Pay As You Go customers can use our Ultrafast network to chat, text and enjoy the internet without making a trade-off on value. This is Pay as You Go in its purest form.”

Once customers top up, they can use credit for talking, texting and the internet, safe in the knowledge that if they send more emails than text one month they won’t be penalised for doing the things they love on their smartphone. Existing Three Pay As You Go customers can also enjoy Three’s new rates without having to change their tariff and they will be able to use their remaining credit as they wish.

Pretty neat price options don't you think? Anyone now tempted to go PAYG and ditch their 24 month contracts when they exprire?
