4G coverage (and calls dropped)

Since 3G and 4G have arrived in my area (sort of), I find that calls often drop as, whilst masts about 4 miles away were upgraded to 3/4G, the ones local to my town were not - they're only 2G (despite planning permission for 2 O2/Vodafone upgrades being granted a couple of years ago). The rollout seems to have stalled! Therefore indoor coverage is pretty bad for data and it doesn't always switch from a distant 3G mast to a closer 2G one - calls get cut off instead. I know I can switch the phone to 2G only, but not ideal. Contract ends soon & might be an opportunity to research the other networks perhaps?

Re: 4G coverage (and calls dropped)

Just get PAYG sims from other networks and try them out. All networks will send you free sims off their websites.
