Are Three increasing prices?

There was a thread recently on HUKD where somebody claimed that Three were increasing the tariff of The One Plan from £15 to £20 pm for new customers signing up after 30th January. the OP didn't provide a source and I can't find the thread. I assume it's been marked as spam but just wondering if anybody knows if there are any price rises planned? I suspected this might happen to help pay for their 4G roll-out if they're not changing any extra. It would still conform to their promise of not charging extra compared to 3G

The key word is new customers. Meaning it won't affect any existing customers. And that it's only for 2 sim only plans. All other tariff prices will remain the same.

Which two SIM only plans is it? My T-Mobile contract has its 30 day notice period in two days and I'm seriously considering moving to Three. Also, if I ring Three up as a new customer and ask them to get as close as possible to a price T-Mob offered me, would they be likely to give me any discount from their advertised prices?

I doubt it matty bro. they dont tend to move their advertised prices for new customers (they already price them competitively..)

hmmm... I'm currently on T-Mobile and I get 500MB, which has meant I do take a very cautious approach to checking my phone and using internet (I still allow it to sync). the plus side is it has stopped me checking FB at work hehe. The truth, however, is I'm paying 1p per month for it - remember that T-mobile glitch where instead of £8pm it was Free for 12 months?

So do I make the switch to Three before the price rise and cancel this T-mobile contract (to Port my number)? hmmmm

I have an iPad but it never leaves the house so doubt I'll use tethering. Might just take advantage of this free sim until it expires in November then get the Three essentials Sim for £6.90 and add on All You Can Eat data for £3pm. Hopefully 4G might be available in my area by then.

there you go.. it's decided

The two plans mentioned in the OP

Or should I say the one plan mentioned in the OP

The one plan 1m and 12m basically.

Ahh, it was the second plan that was confusing me. It's not a problem anyway, I'd go for the cheaper 1 month rolling plan with unlimited Internet and no tethering rather than pay more for the one plan which has minutes I'd never use.

But the tethering is so nice, especially if being used in one of the countries they let you use your contracted minutes in.
