Coverage & Availability

Three’s home broadband service differs from most other providers as it doesn’t rely on a phone line or cable connection into your home. As such, it may be available in different locations to other home broadband services (e.g. you might be able to get it in rural areas where it isn’t possible to get a fibre connection connection).

  • Three’s 4G home broadband service is available in around 7.1 million UK households (approximately 25% of all UK homes).
  • Three’s 5G home broadband service is available in selected postcodes across 194 UK towns and cities.

You can check the availability of the service where you live by entering your postcode on this page:

If you’re unable to get Three’s 4G or 5G home broadband, you might still be able to get the Huawei 4G Plus MiFi. This is a battery-powered 4G mobile broadband hotspot. Although it isn’t as powerful as the 4G Hub, it has the advantage that you’re able to use it more easily on-the-go in other places.
