3 may have struggled to drum up quite as much interest as it would have liked for its 3G video features like person to person video calling, but the company has done a decent job of tempting people in with its extremely attractive tariffs. This has developed a weird situation where the company that offers the most high tech services on a mobile phone, has a fair proportion of customers who couldn’t give two hoots about all that 3G nonsense and just want to save their pennies.
The rumour doing the rounds that Vodafone is soon to launch its own 3G service for consumers could very well be the reason that 3 has announced plans to shave even more off its already very competitive tariffs. With the deals the company’s offering now, it will be very difficult for Vodafone to offer similar prices for 3G since it would mean dramatically undercutting what it charges existing customers for the normal service.
