What is Three's fair usage policy?

Three imposes a 12GB fair usage cap for all customers on a monthly contract when roaming abroad, and 9GB for those on pay as you go.

This means that, if your allowance is less than this, you will have your normal limit imposed.

But if you normally enjoy more data than this, you'll need to stick within the fair usage cap or risk paying more.

Three's fair usage policy also extends to how long you're roaming for.

Using your phone in any of the countries listed above for two months or more in any rolling 12-month period will put you outside Three's fair usage policy and your roaming will be suspended.
