Snapped up a talkmobile deal thinking Vodafone reception pretty good, but it turns out it's worse?

My calls most times people do not hear me properly, I got WiFi and volte enabled.

Anybody else experience this?

    I had a few problems with Talkmobile when I first got the sim. They did help me sort it out though. I have noticed a slight decline in reliability from my last provider however not enough to warrant a cancellation. I'm overall pleased with the price/performance value from Talkmobile. £12 from £23 with more data too.

    Reception is worse, data especially. I can get decent data speeds, but I have to restart my phone or switch aeroplane mode on and off to do it most of the time.

    We found the same with Asda mobile, have just switched to Vodafone Basics instead and noticeably better.
    Thank you, seems like I'm going to revert back to Vodafone/Voxi

    Yes, many years ago. You're not getting fully fledged Vodafone, Instead you're getting a 'Vodafone lite' signal. The pitfalls of going with a MVNO

    Priority given to Vodafone customers (like me)
    Thank you, wish I was prioritised lol

    Did you do a test on Vodafone SIM using the same phone?
    Yeah had a voxi SIM prior which was basically a Vodafone SIM, calls are noticeably worst. But not the data though (edited)

    Talkmobile was bought by Vodafone in 2011

    Give lebara a try. It uses Vodafone too. You might find it better.

    I switched (back) to Talkmobile after being with Lebara for five months because of the 100GB for £10 BF deal.

    Don't really use voice much but data is noticeably worse - think I will swap to Voxi or go to a full VF contract.
