Three offers 30GB mobile data for price of 12GB

17 August 2018   By Angela Moran

Three's '30GB for 12GB' mobile data offer is available for both new and existing customers who sign up for a new pay monthly contract.

Three are well known for offering their customers big data allowances, and this latest offer is no different. For the price of 12GB customers can now get nearly triple the data - with 30GB available for the same monthly price.

To access the deal, customers need to take out a pay monthly mobile phone contract on a 24-month advanced plan.

What's on offer?

This deal is available with over 30 different phones, ranging from the latest pre-order of the Samsung Galaxy Note9, to older and simpler models. Brands included in the offer are: Samsung, Apple, Huawei, Sony, LG, and the exclusive to Three brand - Honor.

The table below offers a snapshot of what's available across a range of available phones. All of these deals can only be taken out on 24-month advanced contract plans.

Phone Cost for 12GB and 30GB (monthly) 30GB saving (monthly) Upfront cost (for both)
Samsung Galaxy S9 £43 £9 £79
Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus £48 £9 £79
Samsung Galaxy A6 £28 £4 £19
Apple iPhone 8 £45 £3 £79
Apple iPhone X £63 £4 £79
Apple iPhone SE £31 £4 £19
Honor 10 £32 N/A £19
Huawei P20 £37 £4 £29
LG G6 £33 £1 £29
Sony Xperia XZ2 £50 £4 £79

As the table shows, the benefits vary from phone to phone, with savings for the 30GB deal ranging from just £1 to a decent £9 per month. However, with nearly triple the data on offer for the same fixed price as 12GB, any saving is probably worthwhile.

Existing customers benefit too

Additionally, it's not just new customers that can access extra data deals.

Existing customers who choose to take out an additional contract also benefit from the 30GB for 12GB offer across a wide range of phones.

The table below lists some of the phones that existing customers can get on both a 12GB and 30GB contract for the same monthly price, and with nothing to pay upfront.

Phone Monthly cost (12GB and 30GB) Upfront cost Normal cost
Samsung S9 £41 £0 £43/month & £79 upfront
Apple iPhone 8 £45 £0 £45/month & £79 upfront
Huawei P20 £36 £0 £37/month & £29 upfront
