Three content doesn't make users happy
3 UK is touting the benefits of having their walled-garden content at high-speed - again. But some report it is not all that.

Mobitopia's Martin Little tried using a NEC e606 in Edinburgh, Scotland to check the things British are famous for: weather, football (soccer for North Americans) and Finance news. And apparently the content didn't get a pass mark. Or just.

"Going to my personalised Yahoo! Weather via WAP on my P800 quickly gave me a localised Edinburgh forecast for the day including the current temperature. The GPRS connection may well have cost me about the same amount, but it was faster and I'm able to set up preferred locations, speeding my information gathering further."

"The Three finance service, on the other hand, would appear to purely monitor UK FTSE shares. Setting up a portfolio was a struggle. Ugh"
