3, also known Hutchison 3G UK or Three, is owned by Hong Kong based Hutchinson Whampoa, and launched in the UK on March 3rd 2003. They are are famous for creating the UK's first video mobile network, shortly after their launch.

3G was a new technology when the company initially launched, and 3 undertook one of the fastest 3G network rollouts in UK history and met their license regulatory requirements 3 years ahead of schedule.

In 2007, 3 UK and T-Mobile signed an agreement to combine their 3G coverage, which lead to almost complete population coverage for 3G services across the UK.
