3 Group launches ‘3LikeHome’ cheap roaming in Thailand

The 3 Group with mobile network services in Denmark and Sweden as well as Austria, Italy, Ireland, and the UK is now offering its cheap “3LikeHome” roaming service when visiting Thailand.

It means 3 customers can use their phones in Thailand just like at home in Europe. They can also enjoy the same convenience in Singapore, Indonesia, Vietnam, Hong Kong, Kina. No need to buy a local SIM card when arriving in Thailand anymore. This expands the number of countries under 3LikeHome to 53.

3LikeHome is included in all 3’s mobile broadband subscriptions for retail customers, and in some services for business customers.

3LikeHome covers traffic on any network in the partner countries, incoming and outgoing voice calls from/to Danish and local numbers, texts and MMS to Danish and local numbers, and up to 10 GB of mobile data for 30 days from the customer’s usual package. Calls to numbers in foreign countries other than the one where the customer is, are charged at the normal overseas rates.

The 3 Danmark and 3 Sverige mobile phone companies are part of the 3 Group Europe. 3 Group Europe operates 3-branded mobile telephone networks in Austria, Denmark, Italy, Ireland, Sweden and the United Kingdom. 3 Group Europe is owned by CK Hutchison Holdings Limited which is a Cayman Islands–registered conglomerate headquartered in Hong Kong.
