    Depnds on where u are located really i think as regards speed and coverage etc
    Ithink if u go to any of the phone shops they have maps and they can bring up the range and location of the masts
    show blackspots etc

    seems that alot can depend on traffic at times some providers are better than more and visa versa

    If you check the main providers ,they all coverage maps so you can see exactly what would be bad locations . I myselvf find o2 excellent.

    All mobile phone providers continue to give priority on their networks to mobile phone calls and texts. That's why at certain times of day (usually the evening) you get bumped offline or else you get serious slowdown.

    Mobile phone companies are right up there with the banks for pure cuntery.

    Pick the dearest one that will be the one with the least users and that is what makes mobile braodband usuable.

    O2 is fairly good

    3 is muck as is meteor

    Using Vodafone myself at the minute its ok now at 2am during the day it is terrible.

    But you take a chance with any of them because none of them can control how many users will be connected to a particular mast and all sharing the same limited bandwidth.
    Its the Crips and the Bloods all over again
