really poor signal

really poor signal



​im glad someone has visited every square meter of the uk, tested signal strength for all UK carriers and then taken the time to report back on HUKD. Thanks for your efforts
Really poor service. Waited 2 weeks for my SIM to arrive, but no luck. Cancelled order yesterday. Since placing order, they had generated a bill the very next day and decided to take payment when I hadn't even received the SIM!
Do virgin not use the EE network?
Was told by an advisor in the cancellations department that many customers had complained of the same problem..SIMS not arriving and apparently it's Royal Mail's fault. However I had placed another order with a different provider and they managed to get the SIM delivered to me the next working day (Via Royal Mail).
Yes they do

I had a similar problem with waiting on the Sim Card.. however when I spoke to Virgin Mobile customer services they were very helpful, apologised for the inconvenience and sent a replacement SIM card with Yodel and credited £5 to my account as an apology.

So that is all you have to say really poor signal-presume you mean where you live-on virgin mobile and fine where I live,so like the last person said have you visited every square metre of the uk-please do your research before posting stupid comments.

Had a similar problem to you on a recent sim deal through sim not arriving by royal mail so obviously complained and what they do is when you insist you want the sim quick is then send another sim for next day delivery by yodel which I got and through the complaint they give me a nice credit on my account but must admit there is no excuse for the first sim not arriving.

Has anyone used this as leverage to get 3 to up their data? I pay £13 for unlimited calls/texts and 8GB data on a 30 day rolling contract.

I cant call three today to find out but wondered if there were any success stories as i'll give them a call tomorrow...!

I was also thinking this
So does this automatically renewal with the 20gb does it? Or just a one off 20gb?

It's not like-for-like, as Virgin customers network use is lower priority than the EE customers because they're sharing for a discount.
so this sim is for 1month only, or this is rolling contract and you can go as long as you like?

This is my concern. Couple of months until my deal is up but if this is still around I might be interested IF the speeds are ok. Has anyone moved from EE - Virgin on this deal and can advise how much lower the quality of service is?
Does it include calling free 0870 numbers?
hot! beats all the networks
Data rollover and free WhatsApp also make this a better deal.

No issues in East London. 4G pretty much everywhere and speeds are good.

3 are hit and miss. You might get lucky!!
Is Virgin 4G now?
I ended my Virgin contract about 5 months ago. Despite their promises made over a period of months, my data connection remained 3G. 4G was only available for business contracts. Worth checking.
Will this sim work in an iPhone 6 locked to EE? Since it sounds like Virgin Mobile uses the same network.
This is very cheap even if you want to put it in a mifi device , providing it works ?

​no it doesn't
I was on Virgin for a while as they piggybacked EE which was on a whole quite good.
However and I know this will not apply to everyone...if you go to a highly populated area like a festival or also in my case a cricket match with a full house you get kind of cut off.
At the cricket in particular during the whole match I had no data, could make no calls and was getting nothing incoming either.
After the days play I get far enough away to join the next mast or whatever and my phone bursts into life.
Basically all EE users were fine and get to use those services struggling off 1 mast or whatever but Virgin as they were just piggy backing are demoted to nothing.
This happened on several occasions and it was too much of a coincidence.
I contacted them and they denied all knowledge but it's clear you are treated not the same as a EE customer on their signal.

As I say wondering around town shouldn't be an issue but concentrated areas beware.

Good for people who missed it to get. In my opinion its faster than O2 4G. My samsung s7 edge shows 4G+ signal in London area and way faster than O2.

I use it in Central Scotland and hit around 25MBPS
I ordered one a couple of weeks ago, took a week to arrive. I have better coverage than I did on Giff Gaff with 4G so I am happy so far..

​i pay £16 for 8gb i called a week ago. they would not budge. they could only offer me 30gb for £22. i ended up with my pac code
Anyone got any idea when it expires?

The same here I called them to complain but they said it's royal mail even though it was delivered by royal mail but processed by UK mail. If they used Royal Mail it would've been a lot cheaper for them and quicker for us.

I think if your a Virgin Mobile customer you get access to the Virgin Media WiFi on the London Underground for free... Correct me if I'm wrong??

Also, I understand EE customers get to use it free as well because of the EE / Virgin Mobile network sharing.
