I joined in January last the 750 gb package with three. I was informed although I had my own modem that I had to take one from three which I did and sold my tP link. The service was excellent and with a small and acceptable drop from 6 pm each evening. I was getting 30-35 mb down and 40 upload. In the past three weeks the service has dropped down to 1 mb some evenings so much so I cannot stream operas from Grand Met or now TV. I find that switching off for a few minutes when not in use does not resolve the issue. This evening I find the speed down between 1-4. Mb. But on resetting the modem the speed suddenly jumps back up to 30. This has happened on a number of occasions. Now I genuinely feel that there is an issue with my modem. So I would like to exchange one at three shop but have been informed by three support that this is not possible. I can bring it back to three shop and they will send it to HUAWEI or I can myself as it’s under guarantee but no replacement. I am really disillusioned by threes inflexible approach expecting me to be without a service whilst the modem is being looked at. A tech rep. rang me today and he advised me to turn off the modem once a day when not in use. I did this evening and the speed remained at 1-3 mb. Once I reset the device it’s back to normal. I live 2-3 km. from two masts and have sight of both. Modem is near a window. Really is this business practice so unfair by three? Surely it’s not too much to request a replacement modem while my own one is being checked out.
