    Switched to O2 5G last winter. Easily the worst network data service I've ever experienced on a phone, when using the phone across the South East.

    I took the deal due to the Volt upgrades, but the issues have rendered the extra data pointless. eg. sitting in Brighton last weekend, with a full set of 4G bars but no data speed whatsoever. Mass participation events, (eg. football matches) in London with full 5G signal displayed, and no data throughput. I was under the impression that 5G dealt with network contention, but apparently not.

    I can't recommend O2 and am actively looking to switch.

    I work around London and the speeds are absolutely atrocious, I imagine it’s the same in any built up area.

    I have contacted their support and there response is ‘we are experiencing busier than usual traffic atm, try to connect to a hotspot instead’ which translates to ‘we are over subscribed what our network can handle, deal with it’

    Hi Everyone,

    Ok I have done a bit of research as I asked the question many times on here and there was no answer, so I hope this helps anyone thinking of taking out what is an excellent simo deal here. Yes O2 is not as fast as EE but its cheap and personally I feel the cheaper price out weighs the more expensive options.

    Right, I am an existing O2 customer and I am also a Virgin fibre customer so I get the Volt benefits of double data, BUT, there are also other benefits for Volt customers that give you the O2 Travel Inclusive Zone Bolt On:

    My existing line is a 12 month simo with 100gb which has been Volted to 200GB but when I scrolled further down on my account page I found this, clicking on that + icon shows I have the Travel Inclusive Zone as part of my Volt benefits:
    47616599-qJDSh.jpg
    47616599-y08b9.jpg
    I have the Inclusive Travel Zone so I am happy.
    I then took out an additional line on this deal with the 50GB option and customer services/sales confirmed that once I add Volt to it by doing within my account then it would add the additional Travel Inclusive Zone:


    For new contracts if you are not with Virgin then the following below applies:
    47616599-pEyc2.jpg
    Unless you have a special arrangement with customer services as an existing customer then it will be the Plus Plans that only have the Travel Inclusive Zone applied.

    Hope that helps someone... (edited)

    As is always the case with mobile signals it is always dependant where you are so this is just my experience - I took advantage of a previous volt deal to move to O2. I have had terrible signal in the town where I work and recently went on holiday and experienced the same. I complained and they have cancelled my contract.
    They are pushing hard for new customers, have alot of companies piggy backing on them and I have found their infrastructure is now found wanting.
    Like I say, personal experience so loads of areas no doubt good.

    You can upgrade if your already a customer of o2 with this deal. Go the checkout click it and the option appears then.

    Well I've tried it with every uSwitch deal and it allows me to get to the check out screen then tells me its not working .

    After reading a number of the comments in signal issues I’m thinking twice…having switched to Vodafone last year after being with three for many years I’m really disappointed with Vodafone signal it’s worse than three dare I say. And what makes it even worse is the customer service. Definitely worse than three. Atleast three admit to poor signal Vodafone try everything to avoid it. I was thinking to switch to o2 but the comments have left me wondering…
    Avatar
    You should check the O2 signal first by using any cheap SIM which works on O2, like Giffgaff. O2 may be better or worse for you.

    O2 have some of the best deals but their data is slow and very unreliable and I live in a big city where signal should not be an issue, it may be that they are just over subscribed with all these cheap plans. Was on EE before and their coverage was way better, the only reason I switched was because where I work there was a EE blackspot. I think you are better of paying the few extra quid for a better service elsewhere . Will definitely be switching when my contract is up with o2. (edited)

    Can anyone confirm if this includes the international roaming extra for roaming in USA?
    Avatar
    Yes, with speeds capped at 500kbps, so don't expect to download or stream anything in a hurry 🙈

    I spoke with them through their online chat last week about if the cheap uSwitch deals are applicable for the Volt benefits and I was told that they aren’t. Can anyone confirm if they got Volt this way?

    You can get volt benefits, 100% without a doubt

    I transferred 2 of 2 SIMs to o2 last week and had nothing but trouble with the reception, so now moving them both back to EE (Plusnet).. We did some travelling in South UK last week and the reception was absolutely rubbish.. Screw VOLT, I rather have good speed. O2 used to be the best, what happened???
  11. Avatar
    OK, take my money! What a deal.

    Just to add, it doesn't seem to be available via the O2 app, (10GB for £15 or 120GB for £20 is the closest). Well not for me anyway. (edited)

    I switched to O2 last year from Vodafone, and will be switching back. All over the UK and overseas I find 02 data rates are barely usable. I’ve even done side by side comparisons with my wife who is still on Vodafone where I might be lucky to get 1Mbps on 4G and she can get 20x that on Vodafone. The situation is even worse in the US on roaming where I am lucky to get 3G data rates of 500Kbps. This is the case in New York City, New York State, Texas and California. Occasionally I get 4G speeds but even then it is unusable. Fortunately it is cheap so I haven’t lost out too much and am paying them out and going to move my number back.

    Funny enough I was just in nyc last week, and I can confirm this. My other half has ee, and that was perfect. My o2 on the other hand I couldn’t even load a page half the time. WhatsApp messages never went through at times..
  15. Avatar
    Managed to upgrade my existing plan which was 20GB for the same price with this deal. Thanks!

    In terms of reception, O2 have been pretty good around central London area - I get service everywhere you would expect service and 5G a lot of the time. Plus, pretty much being the only company that does eSim and European roaming for free, it was a no brainer for me.

    Just to echo what others are saying, o2 signal is fine...but nothing works. Sent out a replacement sim and hasn't fixed anything really. Lucky to get phone calls sometimes! Cannot recommend them at all.

    Same signal issues with me on 02. Absymal when I’ve supposedly got full bars of 4g. Any mass events, sports, concerts etc forget it. Call drop outs too.
  26. Avatar
    I’ve been with o2 for years and years. They’ve always been brilliant up until the past year. Despite having full 4g signal, there’s absolutely no internet access at all in any city centres. I went into an o2 store and they told me I just needed a sim swap. They did that for me. Still get the same issue of no internet access. They’re now telling me it’s an issue with my phone. I’m just going to move over to EE at some point soon when I can get a decent sim only deal from them.

    No issues here with O2.

    Every network will have their ups and downs, all depends where you live.

    I just signed up with virgin media broadband with Volt. The sim is only 5GB boosted to 10GB Volt for 12gbp + 18months.
    I want this deal but since my sim was only just activated my account says I am not able to change my tariff since the sim was only just activated.
    I am still within 14 days to cancel the contract... Should I call up, cancel my o2 deal and sign up with this one? Or is there an easier way to get this deal without canceling?
    Avatar
    Personally I would speak to the CS team. I navigated with a guy on the phone to the Uswitch deal, he was aware of it and matched it on the spot for an additional line. Also, I mentioned the TC cashback and he gave me 10% off which gave me the cashback of £14.40 off. That could be because I already have a line with them though. I made the call early morning though so I spoke to someone in the UK....FYI.

    I can also confirm my Volt benefits have been added and I have the Travel Inclusive zone etc. (edited)
