Sign up now and profit forever

The very low tariffs for voice telephony are a landmark. Anyone who signs up with 3 gets all the advantages of Mobile Multi Media (e.g. Video telephony) yet does not have to give any thought to the old way of communicating (voice telephony), which he receives on top. Those customers who sign up for the summer promotion, profit from this offer as long as they remain a 3customer. Why should any customer continue to use his old mobile if with 3 he gets Mobile Multi Media as well as voice telephony at the lowest possible tariffs?
