Three UK releases Ultrafast Galaxy S3
Residents in the UK have only recently been treated to access of 4G LTE mobile data that allows the downloading of content at much faster speeds. The cost of this has been quite high so far with carrier EE, but rival Three UK has muddied the waters somewhat recently by announcing the Ultrafast service that will come at no extra cost to customers. Now the company has released the Samsung Galaxy S3 to consumers on the service.
While Samsung may be getting things ready for a release of the Galaxy S4, its predecessor still has a lot to offer especially if it can access faster data speeds. The newer version of the Galaxy S3 will use the carriers DC-HSDPA technology that is capable of speeds of up to 42mbps.
The handset is also thought to include a LTE radio for when the carrier switches on the network later this year, but the DC-HSDPA network from Three currently covers around 55% of the UK population and is expected to increase to 80% by the end of March.
Other than the radios inside the handset everything remains the same including the 4.8-inch HD Super AMOLED display, 1.4GHz quad core processor, 8 megapixel rear facing camera, 1.9 megapixel front facing shooter, and 16GB of internal memory expandable by a further 64GB via a microSD card.
The price plans start at £34 per month after a cost of £29 for the handset, and for this you get unlimited data, 500 minutes, and 5,000 texts. To find out more about the Three price plans for the Ultrafast Galaxy S3 and other handsets click here.
