Three is bringing back its half price SIM deal starting at just £5 a month
SIM-only contracts are a fantastic option for those who want to keep their monthly phone costs low, and Three has long been one of the most popular networks around thanks to its great deals.
Now, it is upping its game once more with two incredible half-price offers on its SIM-only plans.
The 24-month unlimited data plan will usually set you back £20 a month, but Three is slashing the price to just £10 for the first six months of the contract. That means an overall saving of £60.
If you don’t need that much data, the 8GB plan is also available for half price. And at just £5 per month for half a year, it’s going to be hard to beat.
Both deals are 5G-ready if you have a compatible phone and include unlimited minutes and texts. That’s pretty incredible as Three says its 5G network is roughly 10x faster than its 4G speeds. In our speed tests with 5G handsets, we’ve clocked speeds anywhere from 200Mbps to 500Mbps, depending on our location. For comparison, the average home broadband speed in the UK, as recorded earlier this year, is roughly 70Mbps.
You can also roam for free in 71 countries – something that seems more generous than ever before as we can start to plan holidays again. Rivals EE and O2 have announced plans to bring back roaming charges each day you’re in Europe following the UK’s exit from the European Union.
Using your phone as a personal hotspot for your other devices is a fantastic option for those on the go – or whose broadband goes down often – and will let advantage of those super-fast 5G download speeds on all your gadgets.

It’s not the only cheap and cheerful SIM-only deal from the Three family this month.
Mobile network SMARTY, which runs on Three’s network, has also just announced a £12 deal which includes 50GB data and unlimited calls and texts. Even better, it’s on a month-to-month contract, giving you a lot more flexibility to cancel when you like. Like Three, you’ll get 12GB of EU roaming data. However, 5G is not included.
To take advantage, you’ll need to be quick: SMARTY’s deal is available now but will run out on 12 October 2021.
If you do miss it, they’re also offering a permanent plan which gives you 30GB for £10 a month, with a few even cheaper options if you need less data.
Three’s deal will come with the network’s latest offer to all Pay Monthly, Pay as You Go and mobile and home broadband users. Both new and existing customers will be able to sign up for 100GB of free Google One storage across Google Drive, Google Photos and Gmail.
