O2 in breach of contract?

Anonymous
Not applicable
I am signed up for and about halfway through my contract.
However the service being provided is awful. Simply put the signal anywhere near my home is so weak as to be pathetic. It's taken ten minutes to get their own forum to load.
Does this constitute a breach of contract as they are not providing the service I am paying an exorbitant amount for?

I've had just about enough, I should be able to use the internet via my phone wherever I am not just in the odd place where the signal happens to be good.

Unfortunatley not as most mobile phone carriers have a caveat and clause in there contracts that you read and agreed to before signing o2's is 2.2 and also section 4 of the quick summary, im afraid the onus is on you to check coverage where you need it to work before you take out the contract. 

 

Have you checked the postcodes you are trying to use the phone in for any network outages in your area?

They told me the coverage was good in my area and still insist that it is. They are either lying or mistaken.
This has been an ongoing problem for two years now so I suspect it isn't due to an outage.
When I go into the shop to complain they look at me as if I am mad.
I'm sick of being trodden down by these thieves.

Have you tried your simcard in a different phone, and seen if the issue persists in a different device, as this could actually be a fault on your handset..

It's your responsibility to check coverage meets your needs before taking a contract or within your 14 day cooling off period.

This has been the same with four handsets. Blackberry 9000, HTC M8, Nokia Lumia 950 and Cubot Dinosaur.

I was told coverage would improve, I have been an o2 customer for over ten years and took them at their word.
My fault for being a loyal customer I suppose. Shame that once the contract is signed they couldn't care less.

Are you on refresh?
If so, just pay off your phone and leave.

If I pay off the phone I'm still stuck with the service charges.
