Is the O2 network a good switching option?
Having been with EE for several years I'm considering a switch to O2, which seems to have better coverage in my area including a limited 5G zone in town. Would a switch to a 5G SIM only deal (I own my 5G ready Galaxy S20 Plus outright) be a good idea? I would welcome general opinions, particularly from local NR33 O2 users, please.
Thanks for the reply and sensible suggestion. It is for that reason that I was tempted to get a (contract free) Giffgaff SIM that piggy backs the O2 network, to see what O2 coverage is actually like. And aware of the 14 day money back entitlement should I get a 12 month O2 5G SIM deal.
The network map for EE shows that outdoor coverage for my specific location is great, but indoor less so, and in fact I always have reception issues making and receiving calls within my house. The O2 map shows great coverage for both indoor and outdoor in my specific location.
@Bambino I've learned to make or take calls in certain limited parts of the house but far from an ideal scenario, so certainly my house may be a factor. However, I have EE's WiFi calling set up which should mitigate those issues...apparently! I do have a very strong WiFi connection too. I'm quite sure its an EE coverage issue and now, with my current EE contract ending soon, is an opportunity to test that out with a GiffGaff or O2 5G SIM.
