Three Network Expected To Bring Huge Savings To Your Mobile Phone


Three is making it easier than ever for its customers to stay in contact with the launch of a useful new Wi-Fi service.

The operator has revealed its customers will now be able to enjoy the benefits of Wi-Fi calling for the first time.

Users with a compatible device will now be able to talk even when they don’t have mobile signal - although they will still need access to a Wi-Fi network.

The service is available now for Android and iOS device users, provided they have a device that is able to connect to the network.

The necessary devices include LG G5, Samsung S6, Samsung S6 edge, iPhone 5C, iPhone 5S, iPhone 6, iPhone 6S, iPhone SE, iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus.

Three says that the Samsung S7 and S7 edge will also be compatible from mid-February.

iPhone device users will need to make sure they have iOS 10.2 of more or installed in order to use the service.

Once this is done, users need to head to Settings > Phone > WiFi Calling to activate it.

There’s no specific software requirement for Android users, except for the need to be subscribed to the latest build of the Three app - users won’t even need to change any settings.

The new service replaces the previous Three InTouch app that the network’s users previously needed to launch separately to enable Wi-Fi calling.

The news comes soon after the government revealed plans to greatly improve the reach of the UK’s phone and internet networks.

This followed suggestions from a group of MPs looking to end the spread of signal "black spots" around the country by allowing mobile users to switch between networks.

This 'roaming' infrastructure would allow people to continuously connected to the strongest possible signal, rather than being tied in to one provider's network all the time.

17 million people in the UK suffer from poor mobile reception, with 525 areas around the country that have no coverage at all.

This was despite the government agreeing a £5 billion investment deal with mobile operators back in 2014 that aimed at providing coverage to 90 per cent of the UK by the end of 2017, but now seems to be falling far behind schedule.
