3 last week revealed it’s to launch a new £15 unlimited calls and text tariff through stores in November.
The deal, which also includes 1GB of data, will be available for both new and eligible upgrading customers, but will not include any cross net calls to other networks.
The announcement came at a 3 press gathering in response to the network’s determination to offer consumers better packages for cross network calling but is restricted due to mobile termination rates.
Details of the plan will be revealed late October. 3 refused to make any further comment at the time of going to press.
3 UK sales and marketing director Marc Allera said: “We would love to offer in there a shed load of cross network minutes, but we can’t, which is where we are restricted.”
