I m on O2 with 50% discount get unlimited mins text and 5gb data £11 for life,
The signal has been poor of lately have the iPhone 6 on 4g thinking shall I move onto 3 as checked signal coverage and good at home and work, I use wifi at home and don't use mins at all all I do is text and use data?

Any thoughts from anyone?

Its obviously a personal choice. I moved from O2 to 3 recently. Deal was a little less than O2 but gor free 4G and I can use my allowances in many of the countries I travel too so a big saving over the year.
#2
I know it's personal choice 3 at home looked at it don't visit the countries they offer O2 have to go which I used whilst in Malaysia.
Been with O2 for many years.
#3
Have 3 improved their coverage? I was with them for 12 months a few years ago and couldn't wait to change network as my cellular and data signal regularly dropped out. I live in SW London so it's hardly like I'm out in the sticks.
#4
why not take a cheap 3 30 day contract out keep ur o2 line and then if ur not happy dump three... would prob cost less than 20quid..
banned#5
I am thing of doing the same whats 3 cheapest unlimited data deal.

Pick up a free sim or a PAYG pound one just to try for a week or so, you can test properly in all the areas you visit in a week

Have you installed TuGo too?
Not great if you can't get wifi or cellular data, but good at times for filling in the gaps
you've got a great tariff which many would hold on to.
three might say fine on their site but only way to test is in practice - ask a mate or get a PAYG sim.
obviously depends where you live. I've had pretty good phone signal but data can be temperamental, i'm not getting blown away by 4G superspeeds at all

Is 3 4G speed temperamental?

i checked it when it first came in, and it was pretty fast. then i stopped monitoring it except when it wasn't loading at all.
recently i've realised that it has always taken ages to load pages so have been doing the odd test, and it's anything from 2-7mb/s, nothing to write home about. upload speeds seem really fast, but I rarely upload. it has been 16mb/s in the past.
i've also recently gone from a psuedo-4G phone (iPhone 5 which 3 did support for 4g (sorry about all the numbers!) but not sure if it was true 4G) to a proper 4G phone. no improvement.
i don't have any other network so can't compare.
I pretty much always have 4G (75% of the time) but I am in London which is a key market/densely populated
#10
3 4G is fine in Nottingham and derby
#11
4G don't exist in some parts of Yorkshire with O2 but 3 works perfectly
Don't know what to do?
#12
iv had all the major networks within the last few years and 3 have been the best...for me.

good signal, cheap, unlimited internet
#13
O2 has pathetic customer service..
#14
I think you answered your own question. "O2 signal is pants in my area, should I change?".

If the network did not matter and you use wi-fi then why ask the question?

I think forums have answered my question, why should to a network that keeps removing tariffs?
#16
I'm thinking the same thing.Think I will stay with O2 never had a problem with them.
