My friend and I both have galaxy s9 i am on 02 and he is on EE
We both go to see sale sharks rugby at M30 7EY aj bell stadium approx 7000 people there each time
When sat in our seats( next to eachother) my phone only ever shows 3G or H or H+ never 4g - the speed is so slow I cant really access facebook or other apps that require data
My friend who is on EE has no issue what so ever sales through on 4G or 4G+ all the time
this has happed for the last year since we got these phones
Any ideas what it could be ?
could it be a setting in my phone thats set different to his?
it has happed to often to me for it to be a one off

I'm afraid that's standard for O2.
They don't have the bandwidth that EE does.

It will be nothing to do with your settings.
Factually some networks are better than others dependent on where you are.
When I'm in Yarmouth O2 is great. When I am in Brean in Somerset then O2 is OK but my friend on EE gets a better signal than me.
It's swings and roundabouts really.

@Mawdz Is your data connection poor wherever you go or just in that one particular area? If the answer is the former, then the solution is you should switch to EE.

I have both EE and O2 contracts. EE is far superior to O2 almost everywhere that I travel and at home.
Below both taken from home sitting at the back door.
Massive difference but O2 speeds are sufficient for my needs. If I go into town then I use EE for most things as O2 suffers from congestion.
