3's bold move

Last week, mobile provider 3 launched a flat rate data plan. Similar to fixed line broadband services today (ie, my DSL line), 3 is offering subscribers unlimited data packet services over its high speed 3G data network, escentially becoming a mobile ISP (yet with real assets like spectrum).

Like it or 3G client for companies developing 3G handsets.

I think we’ll see 3G handsets available in the middle of next year, just about the time 3 realizes that to make the service really work, it needs to lean on the fixed network (and Wi-Fi) to lighten the load.
