Good, been with them since they started in uk, started off bad, poor network coverage etc but now i wouldn't swap them for any other network. personally i think they are the best network for data.Had only one issue while with thewm and that was a new damaged phone which they replaced next day

Here is the good-
Their prices are the best. A lot of their tariffs cannot be beaten on price that easily., They also have the best 3G coverage out of all the networks and they are the best for the internet. Speeds are fast internet coverage is reliable. Not that it makes a difference now but in the summer when 4G launches in the UK on Three it'll be free for all customers. So as long as you have a 4G phone like the iPhone 5 or something then you'll get 4G data free of charge unlike with EE who want £56pm for 8GB of 4G data (Yet three do unlimited for £13pm). Also Three have a great social media team on facebook and twitter who are based in the UK and good at responding to any customer queries like signal issues or phone issues.
They have no 2G coverage. Yes they have the best 3G coverage, but there are still some places, especially old building or whatever that have no 3G coverage and on some networks like O2 that have 2G it would cover these areas. But it's only a small number of areas so won't affect you unless you live there. Also Three customer service is based in India, not a bad thing but sometimes their customer service can be terrible if you have a big issue. They're good if its a small issue though. Also as Three is a 3G only network you need a 3G phone so if you have an old phone you may need to buy a new one.
All in all Three are probably the best network in the UK for data. and along with Orange/T-Mobile they are also the best for 3G coveraege.
But i recommend taking out either a month contract/Pay as you go sim first to check the signal in your area first before committing to 12/24 months. I say the same for all networks as you may live in a deadspot.
