All Kinds Of Awards

We’re still in only in October but the awards season seems to already be in full swing and, never one for subtlety, the mobile industry has been giving itself one big pat on the back of late. Interestingly for readers of this blog there have been seemingly no end of mobile broadband related awards in the last few weeks so I thought it would make sense to pull together here something of a complete list so you can get a feel for who’s been recommended recently. Three seem to be the biggest winners with Vodafone and T-Mobile also doing well which certainly mirrors what we are seeing on this site too. O2 and Orange clearly struggled over the awards although O2 did pick up one prestigious award from industry magazine What Mobile.

Free Spotify Premium Offer With 3 Mobile Broadband

There’s an interesting, if little publicised, offer on at the moment on all mobile broadband deals with 3 Mobile (dongle, SIM only, free laptop, mobile WiFi, iPad SIMs).

As a 3 Mobile broadband customer you can get three months access to the premium version of Spotify for free. Spotify is a great music streaming service and the premium account lets you stream unlimited music from a vast library at no cost and with no adverts. You can stream the tracks to your PC or laptop and (and this is probably the biggest advantage of the premium account) to a compatible mobile device like a smartphone or ipod. It normally costs £10 a month and there’s no obligation when they three months end. You can obviously stream the music out of your mobile broadband allowance or any other way you’d access spotify.

We love Spotify and think this is a brilliant deal and one Three should probably be making more of. You can see the full T&Cs on the deal pages of any of Three’s mobile broadband deals.
