3 win top UK mobile broadband prize

No surprise, actually, is it? Have a read of this:

3 UK’s Mobile Broadband offering has been named “Best Mobile Broadband” by the UK’s most popular dedicated broadband comparison site, www.top10-broadband.co.uk. The independent site, which claims over a million unique users each month, has given 3 UK the award based on analysis of data captured from mobile broadband speed tests, examination of feedback from consumers and hands-on research of products and services.

I’ve introduced more new customers to 3 than any other operator, specifically because of their mobile broadband data offering. Whether it’s via the handset or through a dongle, 3 really is knocking the competition for six.

I was in a Vodafone store the other day when I saw their ‘buy me now’ pay-as-you-go mobile dongle. It was on a shelf, ready to be picked up, purchased and used. There’s no way Vodafone or the other networks would have headed toward the tenner-a-month dongle reality we have today if it wasn’t for 3 kicking the industry out of bed. Vodafone were — and still are — making an absolute packet from the 45 or 70 pounds a month data card deals they were originally offering. I think I’ve got one of them, still.

Top 10 Broadband was particularly impressed by the strength and flexibility of 3 UK’s mobile broadband packages. The judges specifically cited the fact that 3 UK allows customers a very generous data allowance, as well as the quality and ease of use of the 3 UK data modems, as important factors in the award.

3’s Head of Mobile Broadband Jonathan Lutz said, “To be independently verified as being the best mobile broadband provider is a great validation of all the work we have done over the past year. Our aim has always been to bring easy-to-use, high-quality mobile broadband at the best possible price to as many people as possible. This award is recognition that we are achieving this goal. “

Congratulations to Jonathan and the team at 3. Nice work. Keep it up!

I agree this is no surprise at all. I've been on 3 Pay as you Go Mobile Broadband for a few months now, and have just had some problems with topping up using a debit card. Buying a voucher has always solved the problem. For anyone that's interested I've written some short posts on my blog about Pay as you Go Mobile Broadband ( http://mobiledatauk.blogspot.com/2008/08/pay-as… ) and SIM Only Mobile Broadband ( http://mobiledatauk.blogspot.com/2008/08/sim-on… )
