  • peterkin1010 Peter MacCabe (@peterkin1010) reported from Barry, Wales

    @DJAshBash @ThreeUKSupport @VodafoneUK @ThreeUK I am also on Vodafone. And I would agree they now have overall a formidable network But they have less bandwith 5G than Three..50mHz as opposed to 140mHz so when Three eventually launch 5G 5G it'll be interesting how it all pans out.

  • peterkin1010 Peter MacCabe (@peterkin1010) reported from Barry, Wales

    @DJAshBash @ThreeUKSupport ..a new chunk of 4G 1500mHz aka Ban.d 32. When they're actually commissioned the Three network has huge potential to deal with all these issues virtually overnight. Sadly they don't communicate the cause and ther solutions very well hence disappointed customers.

  • peterkin1010 Peter MacCabe (@peterkin1010) reported from Barry, Wales

    @DJAshBash @ThreeUKSupport I'm a Three user and have had experience of both good and bad network in and around the Cardiff area. What Three are stating is true but it's taking longer than they planned originally. Three have the largest 5G bandwidth allocation of all the UK networks plus they also have..

  • christianfclark Christian Clark (@christianfclark) reported from Cardiff, Wales

    @ThreeUKSupport Yes I usually switch between when my 4G struggles. My calls have been dropping and not working properly too though in a variety of locations.

  • christianfclark Christian Clark (@christianfclark) reported from Cardiff, Wales

    @ThreeUKSupport Have been with @ThreeUK for years and always been very happy with service. However since renewing to a 24 month contract and 5G getting turned on, my service has been absolutely terrible. Terrible or no 3G/4G, calls cutting out or failing. 1/2

  • Dariogutier Darío Gutier (@Dariogutier) reported from Cardiff, Wales

    @ThreeUKSupport Is the same whit whatever I do. Every area I’m going specially when is crowded around me. I have changed SIM cards, phone and the problem is still here

  • Dariogutier Darío Gutier (@Dariogutier) reported from Cardiff, Wales

    @ThreeUKSupport Yeah and the problem was still there, my phone was changed because apparently was the phone and the problem is still here! It’s been 2 years contract in hell!! I can’t wait to finish it

  • MisCatD Cat 🖤 (@MisCatD) reported from Cardiff, Wales

    @ThreeUK customer service is horrendous

  • x_Gabrielle_x Gabrielle Jenkins (@x_Gabrielle_x) reported from Newport, Wales

    @ThreeUKSupport Worst company i’ve ever encountered. No wonder why your basically failing as a company

  • x_Gabrielle_x Gabrielle Jenkins (@x_Gabrielle_x) reported from Newport, Wales

    @ThreeUKSupport Worst company i’vr ever encountered

  • x_Gabrielle_x Gabrielle Jenkins (@x_Gabrielle_x) reported from Newport, Wales

    On hold to @ThreeUK possibly the worst phone company i’ve ever encountered in my whole life

  • thisisjmx James Vincent 🏳️‍🌈🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿 (@thisisjmx) reported from Cardiff, Wales

    So 2 weeks ago there was a 4G issue in my village with speeds in kbps range. It's been better but last few days now fine 50-70 Down, around 18 Up. @ThreeUKSupport It's not easy when living a completely mobile network operator life. No home fixed ISP. 1/2

  • thisisjmx James Vincent 🏳️‍🌈🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿 (@thisisjmx) reported from Cardiff, Wales

    @ThreeUKSupport Yeah there weren't any issues. Just no inside signal. There was definitely no 3G & no VoLTE either. Just thought I'd mention it. Mayb a consideration for future network upgrades.

  • TheMMEvent Mike Anthony Moreno (@TheMMEvent) reported from Cardiff, Wales

    Another day where @ThreeUK fails to provide decent phone service. I’ve got full signal but yet my services is so slow. #whatamipayingfor

  • Bubwal Ade (@Bubwal) reported from Cardiff, Wales

    @RIKZ200 @EE @jay_smithy_13 @ThreeUK I couldn't agree more. 3's coverage is the worst of them all. Duped by their lying 'coverage' map. Can't even get a signal in my house. Roll on moving back to #EE

  • richieh Richie H  (@richieh) reported from Caerphilly, Wales

    @ThreeUK @ThreeUKSupport Haven't had any service at all since yesterday and still nothing, with a business to run.....

  • AnnaB_Cdf Anna Brzezinska (@AnnaB_Cdf) reported from Cardiff, Wales

    Just came back from North Wales and thanks god I have a sat nav & sos button in my @MercedesBenz as otherwise my journey in the morning would involve searching for an actual road map since @ThreeUK was down, so no service nor data during 4h journey from Cardiff 👎😑🙄 #threedown

  • peterkin1010 Peter MacCabe (@peterkin1010) reported from Barry, Wales

    @DanielIqbal1999 @ThreeUK That should not happen. If the Three signal fails a 999 call should automatically be routed through any alternative network .

  • mindspits Rhys (@mindspits) reported from Cardiff, Wales

    @mythofechelon @TMobile Could be a @ThreeUK issue as their network was down overnight.

  • alunT Alun Thomas (@alunT) reported from Caerphilly, Wales

    @ThreeUK network down after I ios update overnight #threedown

  • Mrs_Thomas82 Sarah Thomas 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿 (@Mrs_Thomas82) reported from Maesycwmmer, Wales

    @ThreeUK My service has been fine. My husbands on the other hand has been non-existent since last night.

  • elisemarylin éli (@elisemarylin) reported from Barry, Wales

    @ThreeUK i literally need my phone to study yet i can't because your phone lines are down, absolutely ridiculous. i will 100% be switching after this, thank God my contract is up.

  • pringoli lynda pring (@pringoli) reported from St. Julians, Wales

    @ThreeUK hope network is working correctly now! Hit and miss since yesterday 🤔

  • stumpy_juk Matthew Jones (@stumpy_juk) reported from Cardiff, Wales

    @ThreeUK fix up

  • oxWelshElisexox 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿Welsh Elise🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿2k (@oxWelshElisexox) reported from Cardiff, Wales

    @EnglishPhoebeX1 @ThreeUK @ThreeUKSupport **** mines been cutting out on calls but not no network

  • WildthingJ74 Johnathan Williams (@WildthingJ74) reported from Cardiff, Wales

    @samboc86 @hockey_laura @Apple @ThreeUK I hate change and I'm sure they bank on being being apprehensive about it. I'm never going back to them

  • TicketTattle Andrew Thomas (@TicketTattle) reported from Cardiff, Wales

    @omnitix @ThreeUK first 3G only network innit

  • welsh_stu 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿 Stuart 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿 (@welsh_stu) reported from Caerphilly, Wales

    @ThreeUKSupport No improvement after a restart and I tried 3 different phones so I know it’s not my phone. The phone is on 3G most of the time anyway and it is around the same speed as 4G. The signal is absolutely terrible.

  • welsh_stu 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿 Stuart 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿 (@welsh_stu) reported from Caerphilly, Wales

    @ThreeUKSupport Been through this, you won’t check as it’s a business account and the business team never follow up. 2 years ago Caerphilly had around 40mb down now it’s about 4mb down and no one there seems bothered.

  • welsh_stu 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿 Stuart 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿 (@welsh_stu) reported from Caerphilly, Wales

    @JohnDubyaUK @ThreeUK Yeah they’re all in such a rush to get 5G out, they just seem to have given up on trying to get 4G sorted out. At least show me I’ve got a crap signal, don’t pretend it’s all full speed and awesome.

  • MK__C MK (@MK__C) reported from Barry, Wales

    Imagine waiting 30 odd minutes for the upgrades department to then be put to customer service who then says yeah upgrades is down at the moment @ThreeUK 🙃 Legit wasted my time

  • gingio Shane (@gingio) reported from Cardiff, Wales

    @jgfoxy @O2 @ThreeUK Good choice! I love being with 3 and find my signal is much better than that on my work phone which is o2.

  • MartynPreece79 Martyn Preece (@MartynPreece79) reported from Cardiff, Wales

    @ThreeUK great if you have no issues, as soon as there’s a problem they give all the bull!! 👎👎👎

  • KrisheleG Krishele Guzman (@KrisheleG) reported from Cardiff, Wales

    @dlever21 @ThreeUK My problem was they added a new condition this time that said if you haven't used it since January. but @ThreeUK ran the offer in May and I used it then. Guaranteed they caught LOADS of people out 😡

  • KrisheleG Krishele Guzman (@KrisheleG) reported from Cardiff, Wales

    Horrible T&Cs usage by @ThreeUK and #Wuntu on their Google Play offer. Tricked me into charging my bill instead of using the offer!!

  • welsh_stu 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿 Stuart 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿 (@welsh_stu) reported from Caerphilly, Wales

    @ThreeUKSupport They said wait a week and try again, and it’s still horrendously slow.

  • welsh_stu 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿 Stuart 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿 (@welsh_stu) reported from Caerphilly, Wales

    @ThreeUKSupport This was in CF83 1XP and it’s been terribly slow for months now.

  • ClareO74 Clare Owen (@ClareO74) reported from Cardiff, Wales

    @ThreeUK Not great service! Look after your loyal customers #loyalcustomersmeannothing 😡

  • SueLidds Susanne Liddeatt (@SueLidds) reported from Weston-super-Mare, England

    @ThreeUKSupport This mornings ‘live chat’ seems to have solved the problem. I will wait to see if I no longer get two contract bills . I live in hope !

  • SueLidds Susanne Liddeatt (@SueLidds) reported from Weston-super-Mare, England

    @ThreeUKSupport They have absolutely messed the whole thing up! I have no 4g, no phonecall facility and when I check the plan on the app I seem to have reverted to the old one. Each ‘chat’ tells me it will be ‘perfect and not to worry’ total nightmare! I’m paying for an invisible service

  • Bubwal Ade (@Bubwal) reported from Cardiff, Wales

    @jaybee_ms Moved to them last month. Advise against it. Data service has been awful. Wish I'd never moved provider. Tried all the main providers and 3 is by far the worst #threeuk #crap

  • Bubwal Ade (@Bubwal) reported from Cardiff, Wales

    @RobBruceK @ThreeUK @O2 @EE @VodafoneUK No awful. Just spent 5 days with no data/calls due ti Insufficient bandwidth. My family and friends who were with O2/BT/Vodaphone had no problems. Worst ever. So regret leaving previous provider last month. Their coverage checker is inaccurate too

  • Bubwal Ade (@Bubwal) reported from Cardiff, Wales

    Exactly the same problem I had with @ThreeUKSupport at #Glastonbury. No service unable to keep in contact with my family both onsite and off. Their coverage checker is false for the vale of avalon area! #ripoff #falseadvertising #threeuk #3

  • Bubwal Ade (@Bubwal) reported from Cardiff, Wales

    @ThreeUKSupport @StroopWafel13 Your service at Glastonbury was virtually non existence! No other providers had the issues 3 customers did at Glastonbury!!

  • jrdnphp jrdn 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿 (@jrdnphp) reported from Cardiff, Wales

    @ThreeUKSupport This was yesterday mind! I have not tried that, but if I experience it again I’ll switch. I was with a couple of people on 3 who had full 4G signal but no connectivity so am pretty sure it’s not my device, if that helps any!! Thanks

  • matthewthowells hi i’m matthew (@matthewthowells) reported from Cardiff, Wales

    @ThreeUK @ThreeUKSupport I don't usually have good experiences with customer support calls, but tonight's call was one of the best I've had. Finally, staff that I can clearly hear and understand. Unfortunately I am moving on from Three but your staff tonight were excellent. 👍

  • RosskoKeniston Rossko 👉👉 (@RosskoKeniston) reported from Porth, Wales

    @ThreeUKSupport I'm nearing the end of a two year contract! I don't live in a great signal area unfortunately, calls tend not to reach my phone at home unless I have the WiFi on. I'm definitely not complaining, there are huge benefits to Three, InTouch was literally a lifesaver a while back!

  • RosskoKeniston Rossko 👉👉 (@RosskoKeniston) reported from Porth, Wales

    This may be something that only affects me but it's hugely unfortunate @ThreeUK are discontinuing their Three In Touch app. I don't have that great a signal in my house and being able to make calls and text over WiFi was a massive benefit. Arg.

  • thisisjmx James Vincent 🏳️‍🌈🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿 (@thisisjmx) reported from Dinas Powys, Wales

    This is the worst rip-off ever. £19.09 for calling @parcelforce on their 09 number at over £3 a minute. + The expensive access charge from @ThreeUK didn't help. There was no 08 or 03 number as an option. @Ofcom needs to address this issue & Parcelforce needs to kill the 09 num:

  • MoyaCrockett Moya Crockett (@MoyaCrockett) reported

    @lucyparts @ThreeUK I hate @ThreeUK with every fibre of my being. Have to do a news scout on my way into work every morning; literally can’t get signal for 3/4 of an 50-minute bus journey

  • pIeasured Ellie (@pIeasured) reported

    @Rhyspal @ThreeUKSupport three is an awful network ive been with them for years and the signal is SHIT literally everywhere

    @TheNordicAlien @Three_Is_Broken @ThreeUK AL8 isn't much better. Roll on 3rd March when I can get proper service

  • DeepcarDaveS36 Dave in Deepcar (@DeepcarDaveS36) reported

    @ThreeUKSupport I took out a SIM only contract, but cancelled it within a couple of days. The SIM was never opened or used. However, you still took a direct debit payment this month, and I'm having great difficulty having it refunded

  • lucyparts Lucy P (@lucyparts) reported

    @ThreeUK i hate being rude on the phone but honestly being passed around 6 departments and having to tell them my date of birth and postcode every time is exhausting

  • lucyparts Lucy P (@lucyparts) reported

    i've spent far too long on the phone to @ThreeUK in the last week and honestly i've never been more infuriated. just let me leave! i know i've been with you for 10 years! but! i! can't! get! any! signal! in! my! new! flat!

  • gnomeinacage Libby Abbott (@gnomeinacage) reported

    Oh hey @ThreeUKSupport, I'm just going through the process of signing up with you guys, and the no-reply email I got with "Important information" included a broken link to the T&Cs. Call me old fashioned, but I actually like to pretend to read those long technical documents...

  • SahotaTBE . (@SahotaTBE) reported

  • Mrjlc93 J O S H (@Mrjlc93) reported

    @2point4bikes @ThreeUKSupport It's been this way for quite a while though, its getting frustrating when simple things on the network are difficult because they don't load
