Three are seen by many people as a new mobile phone network, however they have actually been in the industry since 2003, when they branded themselves as the first network offering god quality video on mobiles. During their initial years, they were criticised by many for poor customer service, however they still managed to grow steadily, opening up a chain of stores around the UK, and growing their customer basis.
By the end of the 2000s, Three had sorted their customer service out, and were also excelling in other areas as well, as proved by the fact that they won the Best Network for Mobile Broadband award, which was given out by YouGov. Despite their improvements over recent years, they are still known as the company offering the cheapest contracts to customers, especially when it comes to the usage of 4G connections. With the recent acquisition of O2 by their parent company, Hutchison Whampoa, it seems that Three will continue to grow well into the future.

Three Mobile and the Tale of the Notspot
CK Hutchison Holdings is a Hong Kong-based conglomerate that owns a majority interest in a number of mobile phone networks and broadband Internet service providers worldwide. In the UK the companies under their control operate collectively under the “Three” brand and have done so since the day 3G services went live in 2003 (on 03, 03, 03 to be exact, hence the company name). Three also sell handsets and various related paraphernalia.
As Three began with only a few thousand towers throughout the UK there were many known holes in their 3G coverage. These deadspots – or “notspots” as they’ve come to be known – dotted the landscape from coast to coast. To fill in the blank areas on their coverage map Three first partnered with O2 and then Orange to provide backup 2G coverage in these areas.
Abandoning the Fallback Coverage
A few years back Three decided to put their 2G coverage out to pasture. Their reasoning at the time was that they’d trebled the number of 3G towers they had to more than 11,000 nationwide and so there was no need for the fallback 2G coverage they’d been offering. Some watchdog organizations thought they were bailing out of the 2G fallback position perhaps a bit prematurely just to save money. Three insisted this was not the case. As it turns out however, there may have been something to the argument that Three still needed some type of backup because those notspots turned out to be far more persistent than anyone imagined.
Three’s withdrawal from their 2G backup plan was announced some 5 years ago. Even those who believed they dumped this fallback coverage too soon believed that within a year or two all those nasty notspots in the system would be filled in. However, in 2014 so many 3G notspots remained a government panel was set up to investigate the state of mobile coverage in the UK. The commission’s report, dated March 2016, indicates that only 88% of UK premises are covered by 3G services meaning that without 2G backup there are still many places in the UK where your Three service will drop out.
MIP to the Rescue: Sort of
The government’s Mobile Infrastructure Project (MIP) was intended to fill in the blank spots on the coverage map but was only able to build 10% of the towers needed by the time they ceased operation at the end of 2015. Instead of refunding the project and keeping it alive until the work was done the government instead made mobile providers promise to invest another £5bn by the end 2017 to address the issue. (Part of this solution will be to allow Three and the other mobile providers to build substantially taller towers than are currently allowed.)
The bottom line is that if you own a mobile phone and you travel about the UK at all, or if you live in a traditionally underserved part of the country, you know that the dream of 100% 3G coverage is still an elusive one. Yet if you wish to call Three to complain about your service dropping out or to discuss alternative forms of coverage you’ll be hard pressed to find a number that will get you through to a human in a timely fashion. Three does provide contact numbers on their website but when you consider the millions of customers they serve you understand that those lines are going to be jammed much of the time.
