  • an0key Luke Sheldrick (@an0key) reported from London, England

    Have to say hats off to @EE worked remotely today. Mostly remote sessions in weird places today. Tethered to the iPad Pro on the way home to watch films. No issue at all. @ThreeUK on the second line couldn’t even sync email for most of it.

  • VictoriaaHelenn Victoriaa (@VictoriaaHelenn) reported from Chelmsford, England

    Hi @ThreeUKSupport a month a go, I phoned up to get my contract turned to pay as you go and was told that I would get an information text about 48hours after with all the details (this never happened) and was also told that it would be today that it changed. (1/2)

  • KeithAlanDunne Keith Alan Dunne (@KeithAlanDunne) reported from Billericay, England

    @ThreeUK. So sorry to sound off one, but your normally quite quick at responding. First tweet I sent yesterday or the day before. Anyway my My-Fi device is not working at all. I may ring you tomorrow, to resolve this issue. As I am busy now.

  • KeithAlanDunne Keith Alan Dunne (@KeithAlanDunne) reported from Billericay, England

    Not impressed @ThreeUK. As my. My-Fi device is still not working on my desktop or laptop. Brought two new cables, both not working. I twitted you before Christmas. No reply. Never had this trouble before from you. Just got no internet connection. Laptop recognising connection.

  • KeithAlanDunne Keith Alan Dunne (@KeithAlanDunne) reported from Billericay, England

    One of my internet connections is just shit. Just won’t connect to any of my devices. That’s after I’ve bought a new cable, for better connections. Still back to square one. @ThreeUK. Mobile phone fine. Just #MyFi device, I’m having issues with. Can’t be arsed to call. Not today.

  • Laurawantsmore Laura Hitchcock (@Laurawantsmore) reported from London, England

    Beginning @ThreeUK why is my 4G always so rubbish! Doesn't matter where I go, either at home or the middle of London and my date and signal are still awful! Fed up now 😡😡😡

  • ChauffeurEssex We Chauffeur You Ltd (@ChauffeurEssex) reported from Chelmsford, England

    @ThreeUKSupport Still awaiting refund - 6 weeks and counting, totally unacceptable and I’m tired off calling!!!!! Shocking service

  • chloealr chloe alice lily 🌷 (@chloealr) reported from London, England

    @ThreeUK had a text saying my service would be shut off if i don’t pay my bill but I’ve been trying for days and it doesn’t work!! I can’t make the payment online, it always crashes!

  • MichaelSnasdell Michael Snasdell (@MichaelSnasdell) reported from London, England

    @Swim1965 @EE @O2 @ThreeUK Yeah the BT involvement with EE is a bit weird and twisted. They tried buying a couple of years back, but was refused. EE for me has always had the speed I want, no other network touches them speed wise, not ones I have used anyway.

  • edmunds_stacey Stacey Edmunds (@edmunds_stacey) reported from London, England

    @DearISSAQUEEN yo tell @threeuk about the service in my area

  • edmunds_stacey Stacey Edmunds (@edmunds_stacey) reported from London, England

    @ThreeUKSupport Ah who’s dishonest here then ,I had one of you manager call me a few weeks ago with this issue , I am tired of restarting my phone because it doesn’t help or change anything .

  • _hancharm Mattu D. Hanchard (@_hancharm) reported from London, England

    @ThreeUK so you wait till I go to #iPhoneX then bring out the #Pixel3XL #pixel3 seriously 😐 never had #pixel2 very disappointed

  • Big_Jim__Larkin P O'Neill (@Big_Jim__Larkin) reported from London, England

    @ThreeUK I upgraded my daughters phone last week. It should of been delivered Thursday, since then I have spent over 20 minutes on the phone,3 times, getting told phone back tomorrow. Now they said they will cancel the order within 48 hours so I can reorder due to technical issue

  • MichaelOpusTri Michael Veasey (@MichaelOpusTri) reported from Chelmsford, England

    @ThreeUKSupport Specifically I want to cancel a contract & speak to someone who can speak English to understand my complaint. Secondly I want to stop your nuisance calls from India. You are in breach of GDPR.

  • MichaelOpusTri Michael Veasey (@MichaelOpusTri) reported from Chelmsford, England

    @ThreeUKSupport Just tell me where I can speak to someone who will undermy problem. Someone who doesn’t insult me by not knowing how to talk to me.

  • chloealr chloe alice lily 🌷 (@chloealr) reported from London, England

    @ThreeUKSupport he’s already pre ordered the new Mate Pro with EE, and he’s now been refused on the phone twice now for a PAC, so your version of “never” is a lot different to mine 😡

  • JonJSW Jonjsw (@JonJSW) reported from London, England

    @ThreeUKSupport Awful experience with your customer service team trying to get a PAC code.

  • JonJSW Jonjsw (@JonJSW) reported from London, England

    Just had it confirmed why I’m leaving @ThreeUK another awful customer service experience. Here’s to hoping @EE’s will be better.

  • stevenamcbride Steven ⚡️ (@stevenamcbride) reported from London, England

    @ThreeUKSupport She’s managed to cancel it now, but she’s still been given a bill of over £100 to pay for you when the account wasn’t even being used. Also I’d like to note that part of that charge is for the handset, which after 2 years would have been paid off. So why was this still charged???

  • stevenamcbride Steven ⚡️ (@stevenamcbride) reported from London, England

    @ThreeUKSupport She had 3 accounts, and cancelled them over the phone. 1 of the accounts you didn’t cancel and kept charging her for, but because there was no bank account linked you charged her £5 for failed DD, then you did this again. Then told her it was her fault for not contacting you.

  • stevenamcbride Steven ⚡️ (@stevenamcbride) reported from London, England

    @ThreeUKSupport the fact that you’re ignoring my tweet just shows how awful your customer service is! Can you reply please to get this sorted or we’ll be taking it to the small claims court.

  • Richiesracing20 Voice of the people (@Richiesracing20) reported from Chelmsford, England

    @EE @ThreeUK thanks EE. I will certainly transfer all my phones over to you once the contracts are up in a few months. Shocking ‘customer service’ from 3.

  • monikamatis Monika Matis (@monikamatis) reported from London, England

    @ThreeUKSupport what is going on with the network? It is impossible to even make a call, signal goes on and off...

  • sarahthesheepu Dr Sarah Quinnell MBPsS (@sarahthesheepu) reported from London, England

    @kronos1126 @ThreeUK @EE @VodafoneUK I never had any issues with @VodafoneUK in Edinburgh. It was the first place I got really good 4G

  • rahulricky Rahul Ricky (@rahulricky) reported from London, England

    @welshmike @shortandhungry @ThreeUK @easyJet Good solution to a very stupid problem. Why would they do that!

  • GeorgePavlidis George Pavlidis (@GeorgePavlidis) reported from London, England

    @ThreeUK to anyone. This is really serious as through manager’s words anybody can charge me and everyone out there... if you don’t do something I’m calling str8 the police and will go through social media and news for the frauds you support.

  • GeorgePavlidis George Pavlidis (@GeorgePavlidis) reported from London, England

    @ThreeUK issue... then the manager admitted that there’s nothing you can do? Are you serious? I have a contract with you and no protection? I need someone responsible to do something immediately and stop this charge through my account as I’ve never signed up or gave my consent

  • GeorgePavlidis George Pavlidis (@GeorgePavlidis) reported from London, England

    @ThreeUK seriously what is wrong with you guys? This is the 2nd time that some random company (you call 3rd party!) charges me through you... just noticed that I’ve been overcharged and find out I’m a fraud victim once again and call 3 customer service in order to solve this

  • PaulDeach Paul Deach (@PaulDeach) reported from London, England

    Why is data connectivity in Central #London always so poor despite having 4 bars of 4G @ThreeUK

  • McMonkeyface McMonkeyface (@McMonkeyface) reported from London, England

    @ThreeUKSupport no signal in E6 area. Is there a fault?

  • johnrahers It's me, John (@johnrahers) reported from London, England

    @chrisgolds @ThreeUKSupport Started off the underdog...grew to cosmic-heights, and have now in the last year completely deflated to be the worst network provider in the UK. Hi EE

  • johnrahers It's me, John (@johnrahers) reported from London, England

    In Central London, not surrounded by a large crowd of people, and my @ThreeUKSupport phone has had ZERO signal for 3 hrs. I’ve had to tether off a Vodafone to send this (and watch insta vids SEAMLESSLY, since). Talk about embarrassing. Three are a shambles & will be gone tomorrow

  • JohnCBayliss John Charles Bayliss (@JohnCBayliss) reported from London, England

    Called @ThreeUK after getting text and missed call about an account I haven’t used in years. I call back - they have no record of my number or my account. They tell me to wait for the next call. Just took an audio message asking me to call to discuss my account. WTF is going on!?

  • rspiano Rick Simpson (@rspiano) reported from London, England

    @ThreeUK 4G has been extremely slow/none existent for the last two days....

  • MrChrisBrogan Chris Brogan (@MrChrisBrogan) reported from London, England

    @Paul_Rowell @chrisgolds @ThreeUK @EE Stop championing EE Paul, shit too hahaha

  • marcinignac Marcin Ignac (@marcinignac) reported from London, England

    @ThreeUKSupport @tomduncalf This doesn't seem like an 1 off problem but more of an infrastructure collapsing..

  • marcinignac Marcin Ignac (@marcinignac) reported from London, England

    @ThreeUKSupport @tomduncalf Areas? Gradual blackout around Richmond station (speed gradually drops from St Margarets), zero connectivity at Waterloo Bridge e.g. Spotify stops playing, can't send SMS (since last August when i started commuting), last week no network at Waterloo ground train level 50% of time

  • eddusa Edd (@eddusa) reported from London, England

    @ThreeUK can’t use my cellular data anywhere in London. Is something up? Has been an issue since 3pm

  • sohocub Neil A.Evans (@sohocub) reported from London, England

    @knasher @ThreeUKSupport @VodafoneUK I think it’s time to quit @ThreeUKSupport - we’ve been evangelizing customers for a very very long time and in that time the service has just got worse and worse. There are clearly network issues or over subscription which they can’t or won’t address.

  • sohocub Neil A.Evans (@sohocub) reported from London, England

    @ThreeUKSupport WC2R is Strand in London… so not a new post code. Just a poor PAF database at your end. @knasher are you still having issue in EC2? You’ve been saying there are issues in SE1 for ages - if you can’t provide a working service I’d like my money back.

  • aroundthehouses Mark Newton (@aroundthehouses) reported from London, England

    Ok so after the initial major frustration at the porting process with @ThreeUK (and a sorry in the form of £30 credit) it’s all fine now (fingers crossed) and their 4G is bloody fast! Customer service was good but there are way too many platitudes! #three #4g #fast #service

  • Merenptah Merenptahisangry (@Merenptah) reported from London, England

    @ThreeUKSupport @ThreeUK your U.K. 4G data in central London is awful right now. Your network is overloaded. This is ridiculous!!!! Used to be great.

  • sohocub Neil A.Evans (@sohocub) reported from London, England

    @ThreeUKSupport Even now in SE1 0AJ there is no data signal at all.

  • sohocub Neil A.Evans (@sohocub) reported from London, England

    @ThreeUKSupport EC2V 7NG, EC3A 8BF, WC2R 0HR just 3 of the zipcodes where there is virtually no signal at all (inside or outside), last night in WC2R 0HR there was less than 56k download. It’s been like this for the last week or so. And I know it’s not just me that’s having these issues.

  • sophbugden Sophie Bugden (@sophbugden) reported from Chelmsford, England

    Been at the front of the queue in the @ThreeUK store for 20 minutes now... why are all uk phone companies terrible at customer service...

  • sohocub Neil A.Evans (@sohocub) reported from London, England

    @ThreeUKSupport @knasher @ThreeUKSupport are you honestly happy ignoring customers all day? You’ve got some major issues in London for some customers.

  • neilfoulger CM3 Green Badge (@neilfoulger) reported from Boreham, England

    @GaryLDN @ThreeUKSupport @EE Turn the 4g off and i find the 3 network works fine. Even for video streaming.

  • sohocub Neil A.Evans (@sohocub) reported from London, England

    @ThreeUKSupport Your service in central London especially between WC2R / EC2V has been shockingly poor for weeks now. Was getting less than dial up speeds last night. - I know I’m not the only customer having these issues. (Another customer cc’d in here @knasher!)

  • EllisCole_ Ellis (@EllisCole_) reported from London, England

    @threeUK signal in Battersea area is atrocious

  • LimehouseDan London Dan (@LimehouseDan) reported from London, England

    @ThreeUKSupport Hi guys - it’s just a weak signal (1 or 2 bars) in my neighbourhood. It’s been like this since I moved there in Summer 2016.

  • mikewigan72 Mike Roscoe ⌚️ (@mikewigan72) reported

    @ThreeUK Excellent customer service again! my contract was only up and the end of May-19, I received a text to say Im eligible for an early upgrade, now signed up for a sim only deal unlimited data, calls & text £20, thank you THREE! 😉

  • stevieco7 steve courtney (@stevieco7) reported

    @ThreeUKSupport Daughters phoned and been on live chat. Not inserted in helping. Even had screen shots of 1 live chat saying would get refund. But never happened and 3 not interested. Worst company customer service ever and glad to be rid of them. Would definitely not recommend to anyone

  • abid_patel Abid Patel (@abid_patel) reported

    @ThreeUKSupport Not connected, but my wife and I are experiencing several other issues when calling on @ThreeUK. Sometimes, when the call connects, you don't hear any sound at all. Also, sometimes, when the call connects, the call will fail after approximately 10 seconds.

  • abid_patel Abid Patel (@abid_patel) reported

    @ThreeUKSupport No, it resolves itself intermittently but the issue will return later on

  • watershipbrakey watershipbrakey (@watershipbrakey) reported

    @1aura_covi11 @O2 I'm off. No recognition that the service USED to be good but has tanked and others, from a FB poll, seem to be in the same boat with the same stupid response about constantly improving service...even though they've made it worse! Time to try @EE or @ThreeUK I think.

  • nosborino nosbor (@nosborino) reported

    @ThreeUKSupport Signal is pretty much non-existent inside aside from a random 1 bar that isnt strong enough to do anything with, but once im outside its a little better.

  • nosborino nosbor (@nosborino) reported

    @ThreeUKSupport With the best will in the world, i have tried your wifi calling app and it would do nothing but end calls while i was mid call and is just clunky and awful in general.

  • HaySVet Hayley S (@HaySVet) reported

    Yes again at the stoop and I’ve no internet connection despite 4G signal @threeuksupport - and before you ask no I can’t put my sim in a different phone #everytimeattherugby #startingtogetirritated

  • millarir Iain (@millarir) reported

    @ThreeUKSupport Sorry page has expired before I could grab one. Had your logo all over it saying I was a loyal customer and could win a prize if I answered some questions.

  • cowboystyle David James Lennon (@cowboystyle) reported

    @ThreeUKSupport customer services can't even find my number! frustrating. sorted the addon by dialing 444 though.
