In the press release, Three stated that the new SIM only plans will provide flexibility, great value and no surprises when it comes to data. Considering that since June 2010 SIM only sales have risen 34% compared to June 2012, Three could be making a great move as the rise in SIM only plans suggest that people no longer want to be stuck in a contract for 24 months, and want to move to a SIM only plan that requires just 30 days notice.
The new SIM plans have been designed for users that want to browse the web on their phones – a group Three are calling the “Savvy SIM-ers”. Starting at just £12.90 on a 30 day rolling contract users can expect to receive 200 minutes, 5000 texts and all-you-can-eat data.
Its worth mentioning at this point that the only plans which offer tethering alongside the all-you-can-eat data are those within “The One Plan”. However, for £25 users can get a “One Plan” SIM with 2000 minutes, 5000 texts and of course tether-able all-you-can-eat data.
Thomas Malleschitz, Marketing Director at Three said:
“The SIM market is on the up, driven, we believe, by consumers that want the best value for data from their plan with the option of being able to act quickly if a new smartphone catches their eye. The brand new SIM plans in our portfolio are built for the internet, packed full of data as well as a great allowance of minutes and texts, all on a network built for the internet”.
This is a great move by Three in our opinion..now, when does my current contract end?
