The mobile operator is promising to extend the core applications and uses of the fixed-line broadband internet to mobiles with a new pricing model.
Customers will be able to make unlimited calls from their mobile using Skype, watch their home television on the move using Sling, access their home PC remotely using Orb and have access to internet and messaging services from Yahoo, Windows Live Messenger and Google.
X-Series will be priced in the same way as fixed-line broadband, offering mobile internet services for a flat fee.
Customers will be charged flat access fees for X-Series mobile broadband services on top of their basic subscription. The fees will include unlimited instant text messaging, browsing and Skype use.
An additional access fee will apply initially for customers who also take hig her-bandwidth services like Sling and Orb. All X-Series services will be free at the point of use, subject only to fair usage limits.
"We believe that giving our customers the benefit of the favourable economics of the broadband world will lead more customers to join our network," said Frank Sixt, group finance director at 3 owner Hutchison Whampoa.
"The X-Series heralds important changes in the business model for mobile media and internet. Moving away from unit charges will set mobile users free to enjoy broadband services without fear of 'bill-shock'."
