    Just to let you know previously Jersey and Guernsey were not part of Free to Roam but are amongst those that have been added in last few days. I can say that I am overjoyed to have successfully connected from both Islands (I did need to go to Network settings and choose provider which coincidentally is my home provider but my contract with them is more expensive than 3 so will be changing my Jersey mobile provider to 3!!!!)
    Was in Norfolk and Portsmouth last week using 3 sim card in mifi, then 2 days at home in Jersey, now in Guernsey for 4 days then departing here to St Malo to pick up m'home from storage then to S'hampton for Boat show, staying Ashurst Forest site couple of days then making way to Lincoln Show then back to France for 2 weeks m'home wandering. So really pleased I can use 3 mifi seamlessly - well near seamlessly just having to go into network settings everytime relocate.

    If Three have added the Channel Islands to Feel at Home you will still only be able to use it for two months a year, unless you keep buying new PAYG sim cards. Or are Three now a full provider with their own network there, as opposed to using someone else's, which is what they do elsewhere in Europe.

    As I said would take out contract and not remain on PAYG. They have in past offered me some very good contract packages but always turned down as previously would not be using their network every month of year when not available at home in Jersey (about 4 or 5 months of year). Now can use in Jersey makes sense to change.
    Having said that I must have been lucky as been using 3 for past couple of years for continuous periods of longer than 2 months and have never been cut off and never cut off after period not using and using again later in year with same PAYG card.
