3 launches data onslaught


On the back of 3’s new Caps launched last month, 3 today announced new data options, making data more affordable both on the mobile or through a mobile broadband modem.

Available from today, 3 has introduced two additional new mobile broadband plans and increased data allowances on its $20, $30 and $40 X-Series Internet Packs.

“3’s customers want great value on data and they want to use more of it – so bringing them better value with more data allowances is something we believe in. Whether you’re using the internet on your mobile phone or on your laptop, we think these new options will be a good match,” said Noel Hamill, Director Sales, Marketing and Product, 3.

More 3 Mobile Broadband
The two new mobile broadband plans are a $39 per month plan for 6GB of data and a $49 per month plan for 7GB of data, both with a free USB modem. These 24 month plans will be added to 3’s existing line-up of mobile broadband plans, including the $15 per month 1GB plan and the $29 per month 3GB plan, available over 24 months.

X-Series Data Increased and More Free Skype to Skype Minutes
For those who love the internet on their mobile, 3 is increasing data allocations on 3’s X-Series Internet Packs to 1GB, 2GB and 3GB on the X-Series Ultimate 20, X-Series Ultimate 30 and X-Series Ultimate 40 Packs respectively. These increases will give customers more affordable access to their favourite internet sites such as Facebook, Hotmail and Google, and for the heavier user, greater reason to use their 3 mobile as a modem to connect their laptop to the internet at fast speeds.

In addition to the increased data allowances on 3’s X-Series Internet Packs, there is also more free Skype. All X-Series customers with compatible handsets will now get 4,000 minutes to talk to other Skypers every month. Unlimited access to MySpace will also be added to the X-Series Ultimate Packs. In addition to adding more value to 3’s X-Series Internet Packs, 3 has consolidated and simplified its data plan offerings by combining Explorer Packs and X-Series Packs into the one product family.
