    Cool Free International roaming - 16 countries, Three Feel at Home

    IMO Three is the cheapest and probably best UK network with free 4G (it works, I've seen it) so adding a ridiculous roaming policy only hypes it up more

    If you have bad Three signal where you live, that's unfortunate and I can't help..

    They have just bumped up their list of "Feel at Home" roaming countries to 11 and adding another 5 on the 1st July. Awesome!!

    Current:
    Australia
    Austria
    Denmark
    Hong Kong
    Indonesia
    Italy
    Macau
    Republic of Ireland
    Sri Lanka
    Sweden
    United States
    1st July:
    France
    Switzerland
    Norway
    Finland
    Israel
    What's included and excluded:
    All calls and texts to UK number (up to 3000 mins and 5000 texts for All-You-Can-Eat plans)
    All data usage (up to 25GB for All-You-Can-Eat plans)
    VPN works
    Free to receive calls and texts (may seem obvious but actually inst all that common)
    Numbers that start with 070,09 and 18 directory services are not included
    Not designed for extended periods (can imagine international people taking the piss, £13 per month for 25gb sim in 16 countries!)
    No hotspots or tethering!!

    Re: Three Like Home - Free International roaming in 7 countries

    I switched to Three a few months ago (One plan £15/month sim only, 12 months). Got £60 cash back so only works out at a tenner a month for the year. With tethering and now decent roaming, I just wish I'd have switched earlier.

    Wonder if they'll expand in to other countries, could do with it being in France before December!

    The list of 7 countries is the countries where their parent company, Hutchinson Whampoa, have mobile networks. HWL don't operate in France.

    Thanks, was a good necro, so I updated the first post

    Don't think any other network can match this! Hopefully it will stick around for the long run.

    Might be going to France in August so this is pretty awesome
