Three UK says 3.1 million of its customers are now using 4G services, just 10 months after the network launched its LTE technology.
That’s over a third of Three’s 8 million customers.
A new survey from testing services company P3 communications has ranked EE as the ‘best in test’, noting that it offered the best national data performance.
Three was ranked second overall but had the best voice performance in the test.
Ofcom has published its first research into the consumer experience of UK mobile broadband services since the 4G auction last year. The regulator’s own engineers conducted around 210,000 tests of 3G and 4G services on smartphones in Birmingham, Edinburgh, Glasgow, London and Manchester between March and June 2014.
Download speed, upload speed, web page loading times and latency were all measured.
Three Wholesale, the business-to-business arm of Three UK, has partnered with ‘Over The Top’ service Nextplus to provide mobile numbers without a physical SIM card.
It’s the first time Three Wholesale has powered an OTT service provider.
