: Three Ireland today announced that it will extend its free 4G access promotion to all customers, including former O2 customers, who up to now have not had 4G access.

The promotion will mean that 1.5m former O2 customers* can get access to 4G from 1st July, for the first time and it’s free. The extension will also benefit Three’s original base of 500,000 as the advertised 4G fee of €4.99 per month will be waived for the next twelve months.

Three first launched 4G in January 2014 and, following the acquisition of O2, is rolling out 4G to former O2 customers as part of its network investment of over €300m.

From 1st July 2016 4G access will be available for purchase through an add-on for €4.99 per month.
