Top 10 Broadband and 3’s exclusive money-saving mobile broadband deal is set to expire in just three days time, it has been confirmed.
Under the terms of the cheap broadband offer, customers get £10 off 3’s dongle, which is ordinarily priced at £29.99, when they sign up for the broadband provider’s pay as you go deal online through Top 10 Broadband.
In order to take advantage of the credit crunch-defying offer, customers must first visit the 3 page of Top 10 Broadband. They can then select the mobile broadband deal from the broadband comparison tables and enter the promotional code DONGLEDEAL and complete the order online to secure the discount.
3 offers a mobile broadband connection speed of up to 3.6Mb, with a £10 top up entitling buyers to 1GB of usage, which must be used within a month of purchase.
According to 3, 1GB is enough to allow users to send 1,000 Outlook or HTML e-mails or surf the web for ten hours. It is also sufficient to allow five four minute videos or 32 four-minute music tracks to be downloaded.
3 has one of the chief beneficiaries of the mass take-up of mobile broadband. This was highlighted by a recent report from the Times in which it was revealed that the company is thought to have sold over one million mobile broadband dongles since entering the market.
As well as its keenly priced pay as you dongle deals, customer demand for 3’s mobile broadband services is likely to have also been driven by a recent price cut for its 15GB Broadband Max package. In March, the company halved the cost of the 24-month contract deal in a bid to appeal to cash-strapped consumers.
Top 10 Broadband is also currently running an incentive on selected 3 mobile broadband contract deals. This offers customers a free £20 accessory voucher to spend at 3.
