PRESS RELEASE

The Samsung Galaxy Mega is now available on Three's Ultrafast network with all-you-can-eat data, on both Pay As You Go and pay monthly price plans. The device will be stocked in all Three stores from 2 July and available through Three.co.uk from today.

The Samsung Galaxy Mega is available for £33 a month with no upfront cost on the Ultimate Internet 500 plan, £35 a month with no upfront cost on the Ultimate Internet 100 plan and for £37 a month with no upfront cost on The One Plan. Both plans are available with all-you-can-eat data.

The device is also available on Three's new market leading Pay As You Go rates of 3p a minute, 2p a text and 1p a MB of internet for £449.99. For even better value and all-you-can-eat data add ons are also available. All in One 15 costs £15 and gives 30-day access to all-you-can-eat data along with 300 any-network minutes and 3,000 texts. Or All in One 25 costs £25 and offers 500 minutes, 3,000 texts and all-you-can-eat data for a 30-day period.

Three's Ultrafast network is supported by DC-HSDPA technology and covers more than 80 per cent of the UK population, with 4G LTE rolling out later this year. This fantastic smartphone is also future-proofed so that when 4G arrives, Three customers will experience even faster speeds, at no extra cost.

Sylvia Chind, Head of Devices at Three said, "You can carry the Samsung Galaxy Mega like a phone, but use it as a tablet, thanks to the huge 6.3" screen which even has split screen capabilities. It is the perfect device for gaming or streaming YouTube ‘fail' videos on Three's Ultrafast network, wherever you are."

The Samsung Galaxy Mega also boasts powerful performance, equipped with a 1.7GHz dual core processor making it quick and easy to switch between apps. And the 8 megapixel camera can take stunning still pictures, but can also capture full HD video at 30 frames a second and be played back in the same quality. To support all of this power and performance the Galaxy Mega comes with a huge 3,200mAh battery capable of up to 700 hours of standby time.
