3 UK launches 5 GB one-month mobile broadband contract

Mobile operator 3 has launched a 5GB mobile broadband package on a 1-month contract. The move follows rivals introducing similar deals, including Orange and O2, which offer 30 day or one month plans.

3’s new package costs £15 a month and includes 5GB usage allowance on a rolling one month contract. The 5GB allowance is generous compared to similar short-term mobile internet deals from Orange and O2.

The deal requires a one-off fee £19.99 for a USB dongle that connects to the mobile internet service - and if you already have a compatible dongle, you can sign up to the deal on a sim-only basis with no one-off charge, according to the company.
