Who Is Three Ireland?

Three Ireland launched in July 2005 and at the time was the fourth mobile operator to grace our shores. Initial offerings included postpaid (billed services), but in 2006, Pay-as-you-go (PAYG) mobile services became available. This was followed in 2010 by an innovative prepaid mobile broadband product where vouchers could be purchased and were good for connectivity from one day up to a month.

In 2013, Three Ireland’s parent company, CK Hutchison Holdings, made a play for another Irish mobile operator, O2. By 2015, it fully integrated the O2 brand into Three Ireland.

Is Three an Irish Company?

Three Ireland belongs to the CK Hutchison Holdings, which deals with energy, infrastructure, ports, retail, and telecommunication services worldwide. The conglomerate has over 300,000 employees in 50 countries and operates Three Ireland under the umbrella of that global brand.

What Are the Three Deals?

a smartphone

As with most mobile providers in Ireland, Three Ireland offers both prepaid and postpaid mobile phone plans. You will either be on the 3G, 4G or 5G network, depending on the geographical area you find yourself in when using the service.

To simplify the Mobile Phone Service Offers with Three Ireland, we divide them into three common categories:

  • 3 Bill Pay Mobile Plans
  • 3 Prepay Mobile Plans
  • How to top up three?

What Three Bill Pay Mobile Plans Are There?

Those customers who opt for a Three 5G bill play mobile plan can pick between prices ranging from €35 to €80 a month. The difference between each plan depends on how much data inside the EU you would like to include, the number of minutes, and how much texting you want to have.

All Three Bill Pay Mobile Plans come with unlimited “All You Can Eat” data within the Republic of Ireland and a minimum 24-month term contract.

What Three Prepay Mobile Plans Are There?

Pay-as-you-go customers are required to top up every 28 days to maintain their plan active, with prices starting as low as €15 to €30 per 28-day cycle.

You can choose how many features you want to include to select the prepay mobile plan that best suits your needs. The major difference with prepaid mobile plans is you can opt-out or simply stop at any time without any penalties due to avoiding the direct debit connection to your bank.

How Can I Top Up a Three Phone?

You have the following options to top up Three mobile plans:

  • Scheduled Top-up
    Schedule an automatic top-up when your credit hits a certain balance, or on a specific date.
  • Instant Top-up
    Use the Three top-up online webpage, text 'TOPUP'and your top-up value to 50100, log into the My3 app, or contact Three customer care on 1744 to make a top-up payment.
  • In-Store
    Visit a 3store and top up with the help of a member of staff.

What Three Broadband Deals Are There?

Three’s broadband offering is a little different from others on the market in that you can opt for prepaid or postpaid (bill pay) broadband. The options for Home Broadband are:

Three Broadband Deals
Package Name Monthly Price Contract Length
3 Broadband Unlimited 5G Gold €39 24
3 Broadband Unlimited 5G Silver €39 24
3 Broadband UNlimited 5G 12 Months €45 12
3 Broadband Unlimited 4G €30 24
3 Broadband Unlimited 4G SIM Only €29.99 No Contract
Prepay Broadband €30 No Contract

If you are wondering how fast these broadband packages are, the answer is that it will depend on your location. As Three Ireland are specialists in WTTx and mobile broadband technology, your broadband speeds will be dictated by the quality of your local network, and the capabilities of your router. 4G routers can provide average download speeds between 20 Mbps and 100 Mbps, while 5G routers can provide speeds in the region of 100 Mbps to 250 Mbps.

Are Three Broadband Offers unlimited? Although advertised as ‘unlimited’, all Three Broadband deals are limited to 750GB of data per billing cycle. This is considered to be a ‘fair usage’ limit.

What Is the My3 Login Account?

My3 is the Three login online account for both mobile and broadband users, prepaid or postpaid.

  • Check and pay bills
  • Check upgrade eligibility
  • Verify account balance
  • Check usage

Customers with prepaid plans can top up, check their credit balance and buy add-ons, such as extra data from their My three login account. Customers who have registered for the My three login account can also download the My3 app. Unfortunately, the My3 app isn’t well-rated in Ireland with 2.6 out of 5 stars in Google Play and 3.6 out of 5 stars in the Apple store.

What Are the Three Ireland Reviews Like?

Three Ireland has over 999 reviews on Trustpilot.ie and a rating of 1.4 out of 5 stars. Unfortunately for Three, 93% of all reviews are classed as poor or bad. This says a lot about what customers think of the provider. Customers who were unhappy with Three cited issues with the service received and with the internet not working. Customers who were happy with their Three Ireland experiences spoke about excellent customer care and how happy they were with their plan.

No internet or service for weeks and I live in town. When I complained to customer care they said they can’t give a timeframe of when things will be normal again, while continuing to charge me money but leaving me unable to make a phone call. I will switch to a different network today as this is ridiculous. Agata Gondek, Trustpilot reviews.

It is worth stating that more customers take the time to write a comment on review sites when they have a complaint or problem rather than when they are happy. That said, a 1.4 overall review score is quite low and is worth keeping in mind if considering using this broadband and mobile provider.
