Who is unlimited data plan for?
If you use your phone for streaming live tv or movies from Netflix or spend your time playing online games for long periods, the unlimited SIM only deal is for you. You can download to your hearts content as Three do not have a cap on the unlimited data plan. They do limit the bandwidth during peak times generally in the evenings but other that you should not see significant speed drops.
What speed will I get?
Three operates on the 4G network you can expect speeds 5 times that of 3G. Three’s current 4G download speed is just under 19Mbit/sec. Although this is not the fastest when compared to other networks but is still fast. If you are in a patchy area with little or no 4G coverage the network will default to 3G speeds.

I had an Important Spanish test and I did not do so well at, it was a speaking test I was left speechless from the start to the end. If you have gone over the limit of your personal tethering allowance you buy further add-in to boost your tethering.
