Feel at Home with 3: Free international data roaming!
Submitted by Mark Dawkins on Wed, 25/09/2013 - 12:42
Let’s face it, roaming rates just aren’t fair. Being hit with extra charges as soon as you get back from a holiday is no fun – neither is worrying about it while you’re there! Three don’t think it’s right to charge extra for calling, texting and using the internet abroad, so they’re striving to make it fairer, squarer and better.
Feel at Home lets you use your allowance to call and text the UK, and use your data without paying a penny extra. And if you come to the end of your allowance – or want to make calls or send texts to places other than the UK, Three can offer incredibly low rates.
You can enjoy Feel At Home whether you’re on Pay Monthly or Pay As You Go, using a tablet, phone, mobile Wi-Fi or dongle. So now you can leave roaming on when you’re abroad – upload your holiday snaps to Facebook, or Tweet from the Avenue of Stars in Hong Kong - the world is truly your oyster with Three.
Free Data Roaming in 18 Countries
Three's latest offering, Feel At Home, let's you use your in-plan allowances (data, calls, and texts*) when you're abroad instead of charging you international roaming rates - so if your regular UK allowance or Pay As You Go Add-On gives you All You Can Eat data, then that's what you get abroad.
Which Countries can I 'Feel at Home' in?
So far, 3 Feel at Home has rolled out to the following eighteen countries:
Republic of Ireland
How do I get 3 Feel At Home?
This is the best part – it’s automatic! You don't have to do anything extra if you're already a Three customer. When you visit any of the above countries, you won't be charged international roaming rates and won't have to pay a penny extra on top of your inclusive allowances if you use data, or send text messages and make calls to other UK mobile numbers.
What if I go over my allowances?
If you're not on a plan or Add-On with All You Can Eat data and go over, or if you use up your regular call or texting allowance, you'll still be eligible for reduced roaming rates. These are:
20p/min for calls
10p/MB of data
What if I'm not with 3?
Then sadly you're stuck with those pesky, expensive international roaming charges! But it's just another reason to become a 3 customer, don't you think? So why not check out our fantastic phone deals, starting from just £12 a month.
*using your allowances to make calls or send texts to UK phone numbers while abroad is free (providing you don't use up your allowances!), just like it would be if you were at home. But please note that you will be charged if you're using your 3 mobile to make calls to local numbers in the country you're visiting, or using it to call or send texts to non-UK phones.
