So recent trips in teh UK has shown o2 to be lagging and behind the times!
1) at a holiday park in Norfolk, for 3 days no signal my partners phone 3 worked fine, had to tether off her phone so I could use wifi calling to make calls and send texts! she had full 4G
2) Thetford forrest! once again no signal at all, Partners phone 3 full service
3) Cornwall, intermitent service
the best one!!
4) reading and leeds festival! at Reading and guess what no signal at all, reading is a major town and no signal from o2! despite text from o2 saying they had boosted the signal for the festival! couldnt even get onto Facebook to upload a vid or do a live feed!
o2 as a network seem to be lagging and being way behind the times with coverage as well as charging sill;y money for what you get! im paying £70 a month for unltd mins and text with 30gb of data and i cant even tether!! where as my partner pays £58 and gets ultd everything including unltd data and 30gbn of tethering per month, even EE are offering for £58 unltd texts, calls and 50gb of Data! when are o2 going to realise that they are stiffing their customers, overcharging their customers and providing proberbly the worst network covergage and worst 4G speeds?? o2 seem to be overcharging yet not investing in their network infrostructure!
To be honest mate, and I know it's a lot of money to find, in your situation I would be paying off the handset and then looking for a network with better coverage.
Here in Manchester O2 coverage is very poor for 4G whereas my EE phone has far superior connectivity.
The sole reason I have an O2 sim only contract is to use TU for when I'm home in Thailand 🇹🇭
i really am thinking about it @jonsie paying it off and doing a SIMO with three £28p.m and that is all you can eat on everything, i have the iphone 7+ so i dont need a new device anytime soon! i have applecare so if anything happens to the device i am covered by those buggerlugs! its a shame because EE, Voda and Three are continuing to invest money in their network where as o2 seem to be standing still!... i read an article recently that EE/BT are investing 1.5m a day in tehir network to make it the best on the market
O2 claims they are investing £2 million per day
They've been claiming that for as long as I've been posting on here.....and probably even before that
So allowing for a 5 day working week that's £1,560,000,000 they've spent in 3 years
