3 Offering 12.5% Off Mobile Broadband

3InternetKey.jpg3 already has some of the cheapest 3G broadband plans out there, but a current offer reduces the cost even more. If you sign up before January 31, 3 will cut its per-month fee in half for the first six months if you sign up for a 24-month contract (which is pretty much the only option you have if you’re not going prepaid). The deal doesn’t apply to the entry-level $15 a month plan, but for other plans amounts to a 12.5% saving over the life of the contract. Lifehacker’s usual caveats about 3’s limited coverage outside capital cities apply, but if you’re looking for a mobile insurance policy or an Internet insurance policy, this is worth considering.


  • 3’s limited coverage outside capital cities is of interest. i live less than a kilometre from st kilda jucnction which is pretty much the southern limit of the city of melbourne. my new xmas present of mobile broadband connection to three is under threat. the speeds are low- the connection intermitent and three are more than happy for me to leave their service. it seems there is a black hole covering much of st kilda and elwood- one of the highest population densities in metropolitan melbourne.

  • hi
    3 is the worst connection if yo live in S Kilda East St Kilda Elwood and surrounds. I called to complain and they said my modem was faulty and they charged me $60 to fix it (Don’t know what they fixed but no change in service. have called around 500 times to see if i can cancel my contract but they refuse to do so. I am thinking of legal action.
    I would never recommend anyone to go with 3. i have been a customer for over 5 years now and this is the treatment i get.
    very disappointing.
