Over 3 million Three customers using 4G at no extra cost
Three began enabling customers in March with all subscribers eligible to access 4G at no extra cost.
48% of the UK population now has 4G coverage, with customer satisfaction with network experience at its highest ever.
Dave Dyson, Chief Executive of Three, said: “The rollout of new capacity is progressing well and, most importantly for me, customer satisfaction is higher than ever. With an advanced 3G network already in place all our customers are able to benefit from a reliable and high performing network.”
The expansion of 4G coverage will continue in 2015, extending to 98% of the population.
Three is currently deploying equipment to support low frequency 800MHz spectrum to significantly enhance both indoor and rural coverage in 2015.
Dave Dyson said: “The addition of low frequency spectrum is just one part of our plans to expand Three’s coverage and bring our network to more people in more places in 2015”.
