Why stay on O2... they seem bad at everything now??

So basically there's absolutely NOTHING good about being on O2 anymore, AFAICT? 

 

- seemingly, EE has double UK data 4G speed. 

- EU & intl data roaming is best on Three. 

- most of the networks have cheap intl calling/texting bolt-ons. 

 

The only thing no one seems good at, is local calls (e.g. while in US, calling a US landline/mobile). 

 

Amirite? 

 

I'm shopoing around and am leaning towards EE for my (London-based) UK speed usage. And then perhaps getting a Three sim for data while in the USA. Nothing on O2 seems worth buying into, as a current customer; the Travel bolt-ons are rubbish for data, and the other companies offer cheap intl call add-ons as well. So what on earth does O2 do best at...?

@jimthing0  If there's nothing from O2 that appeals to you, you have the option to go where you think you'll get a better deal. We are all customers, so no one here will try talking you into or out of anything.

Sure thing, lol! slight_smile

I'm legitimately lost on why I should stay on the network, before I consider going through the mass faff around of changing to another.

 

I appreciate the phone and online staff are probably the best, but from a purely technical stand point on what they offer and how well they offer it, I can't see anything keeping me from going.

Unless someone has a great point on something O2 offers (however small or big) that's not available on other networks...?

I have no affiliation whatsoever with O2 or any subsidiary companies. Comments posted are entirely of my own opinion. This is not Customer Service so we are unable to help with account specific issues.

@jimthing0  You have to go where you think your needs are served best. The prime criteria that should govern your decision is coverage. Any other offers with whipped cream and a cherry on top are useless if you don't get a good signal in the places you frequent most.

Much as I'm impressed with 'Priority' (not very) and 'Refresh' (you wot? likely *******), I couldn't say these are "hold on a second, what am I thinking, how could I possibly consider changing network!" things. 

 

And given I'm in London mostly, coverage on all networks is decent enough-ish, possibly maybe. 🙂 

 

Well I'm off then, ta-ra everybody! 

"Good bye Good bye, I'm leaving you tonight"...
