Happy 10th Birthday to 3 UK, 9.5 out of 10 based on 2 ratings
Rating: 9.5/10 (2 votes cast)
“3 UK is 10 Years old. 10 years on Three have successfully attracted nearly 9 million current and active customers. Three have supplied endless promotions and fantastic TV adverts, beautiful high street stores and relationships with all major phone suppliers to keep your handsets up to date.”
On the 3rd of March 2003, Three was born. Yes, this week sees us celebrate our 10th birthday! And like all 10 year olds, we’ll be stuffing our faces with jelly and ice cream before playing musical chairs with our friends. Ok, so we might not be doing that, but we sure are going to celebrate, and it will probably involve jelly and ice cream. Or at the very least, cake.
I think we’ve got a lot to celebrate too. We’re currently the UK’s fastest growing network, with a whopping 8.8 million customers at the last count. And I’m sure fact fans will be interested to note that 8000 of them have been with us since the very start. We’re currently rolling out our Ultrafast network and launching more and more enabled smartphones to go with it, making your mobile internet experience even better. And this weekend saw the nationwide TV debut of Socks the plucky little wonder pony, our latest star.
Some of you may remember the heady days of bizarre jellyfish adverts and brick-like phones. If you fancy a trip down memory lane, check out our amazing video. We’ve managed to get our hands on every phone we’ve ever sold and you can see them all here, in chronological order. Can you spot your first phone? Which one was it?
We’ve really had an incredible 10 years and feel proud to have been at the forefront of the mobile internet revolution – I think most of us can barely remember a time when we weren’t able to check Facebook or Twitter or our emails on our mobile phones. As we enter the next 10 years of our story, we hope you’ll all be along for the ride, sharing every cute kitten and wonder pony along the way.
