Three's Ultrafast Pony Taking On EE's Superfast Labrador !
Three's 4G network might not be going live until the end of the year , but it hasn't stopped the operator trying to take on EE's Superfast 4G network with their own Ultrafast network. Both companies have engaged in huge marketing campaigns across all media in the UK !
Three have now unveiled their latest barmy TV advert featuring Socks the "Dancing Pony". The advert is hilarious and features Socks dancing to his favourite song, Fleetwood Mac’s ‘Everywhere’. He's quite the mover and can even moonwalk and Three are also inviting users to make their customised Pony dance over at PonyMixer.com.
The advert has been produced to promote the amazing Youtube sharing enabled by Three's Ultrafast 3G network. Socks will make his debut on UK TV this evening in the break on ITV's Coronation Street, which is the most desirable advertising slot on British TV !
Three's advert, which can be viewed above, is a response to EE's advert featuring "Fenton" the Labrador who was brought back to promote EE's Superfast 4G network. In EE's video Fenton is seen chasing a wide range of animals including an Elephant and T-Rex !
EE's advert, which you can view above, was produced to highlight the amazing sharing features on EE's Superfast 4G network. The network is up to 5 times faster than standard 3G networks, but in the real-word it doesn't perform much faster than Three's Ultrafast network.
We actually prefer Three's advert it's more funny and witty and there Ultrafast network is also a lot cheaper than EE's 4G network. Furthermore, Three confirmed they won't charge customers to upgrade to 4G when their network launches later this year.
