3G mobile broadband

I've been having real problems with 3G mobile broadband. Great service in the middle of the night but speeds in the middle of London, at peak times regularly registering under 100kbps. Top speeds not as high as advertised, topping at 2,700 kbps at best really (High speed broadband at that). Anyone else having the same issues?

Yep. The misses has just got an iPhone 4 on Three.co.uk's "All You Can Eat" Data Plan.

We live in a little village in North Oxfordhire top speed 300k here. (Expected due to location)

However she works in Reading and top speed there is (you guessed it) 300k.

We will son be on the phone to Three's Customer Services as not what expected.

They used to be really fast and in fact when I started work this morning, I had a speed of 3,500 which is great. I think demand has oustripped supply and their network capacity's maxed out. I'm trying to sort it out with them at the moment and will let you know how I go with the service over the next couple of weeks.
