    Default SIM Only Deals

    Looking for a good SIM only deal on 4G. Happy to sign for 12 months if necessary.

    Best I have found is the ultimate Internet SIMs on Three. What are Three like in terms of signal quality? I like their free international roaming too...!

    The deals I was looking at are -

    All you can eat data - 200 mins of calls - 5000 texts for £12.90 a month

    or

    All you can eat data - 600 mins of calls - 5000 texts for £15.90 a month



    Anyone got experience with signal quality or know of a better deal with good internet usage. I am currently using less than 1 gig a month. So could easily live with less.

    The 4G rollout is a little slow, not many areas covered but their 3G makes up for it.. not uncommon for me to get over 20meg speeds on 3G when out n about.

    Indoors you may suffer with signal strength, but in my case i am usually using wifi then so doesn't bother me.

    I did a speed test in one 4G area near where i work and hit 67meg download speeds

    Thanks to andmor

    I work at Heathrow which is covered by 4G. And at home I will usually use WIFI, although live in NW London, so might be decent. Is there anywhere I can look for a signal map?

    Not too bad. 4G coverage could be better.

    I was with three for years and had no problem weigh their signal. Regularly over 15Mb internet speed and never worry about hitting a limit.
    Customer service was great IMHO. They always called when they said they would and I always got every problem sorted out quickly via their excellent twitter team.

    I moved to Voda because of signal issues where I moved to and I never get much over 5 Mb now anywhere.

    There's a signal map on three's website and if you sign up in store they actually check it before you sign now. I renewed my ipad with them a couple of weeks back.
