Three Mobile (UK) increase Call costs from UK to IOM

Recommended Posts

If you get calls from three mobiles in the UK and they are on PAYG, the costs are to increase more than 50%

It's now cheaper for some UK mobiles to ring USA rather than the Island.

Never mind, at some time after the end March 2019 most of the countries in the £1 a minute band will move to the rest of the world charge band.

It may end up making MT look inexpensive.

There are many on the island who are using a 3 contract and have left Manx telecom and sure. 

I don't know if the rates are the same for pay monthly 3 customers or are they cheaper. 

 

If it is £1 a minute to call local mobiles it can get very expensive for them.

 

PS: The 3 website quotes it as £1.25 per minute ! On contract and 46p on PAYG!

I have a 3 contract,  data only. For £15pm i get 12gb data (roaming) 20gb in UK. Works brilliantly all over Europe.

Looks good if using only for data or if travelling overseas but if calling IOM numbers then it can get expensive. 

Are you using a dual sim phone ?

No a hawai USB dongle. Gives us WiFi wherever we go for our tablets, phones and laptops.

I'm using a Vodafone data only SIM for UK and EU and a Vodafone phone/data SIM in my back up iphone.

Great until I pass near Andorra or in Bulgaria where I'm sometimes less than 5km from the Macedonian border...

Is this manx telecom charging Three Mobile more or just Three mobile simply charging more?

I know which I'd be betting on.
