    I did point this out to them via webchat at least 48 hours ago. They said they'd sort it.

    Looks like they “fixed” it by making it £18 a month.

    Edit

    Just clicked through and put the £18 plan into my basket. The £16 plan looks like an additional line for existing customers. Do you already have a monthly contract with Three?

    If I add it as a second line it does go into the basket at £16.

    I just had my confirmation for my new Three contract.
    I agreed at £14, but note from the paperwork that the 'package cost' is £26 and I get a £12 recurring discount!

    It shouldnít, Three usually give an open discount (so do EE), the fixed discount for the contract term before reverting to full price is a Vodafone specialty.

    No, but I ended a mobile broadband contract with them several weeks ago.
    I don't see where it says it's only open to new customers, though.
