I live in Cornwall and travel across the SW and SE a lot, I'd agree - only EE and 3 cut it as far as coverage is concerned. But the 4G coverage of all of the networks in the SW is nothing to write...

To be fair to O2 and VF, it's not as if EE and 3 have bathed the region in 4G coverage either.

But unlimited "phone data", and it isn't fiendishly difficult or impossible either hide tethered traffic or just do the heavy data usage on the phone itself.

It's a shame we don't have all four...

So they're more expensive than Three, but their network is nothing near as good as Three?

That will be a thoroughly enticing product. Shame it'll mean the ultra-misers will clog up 3 for the rest of...

I'm in Reading - dire speeds on 3G, 10Mbps+ on LTE.

I think Reading needs LTE.

I'm saying it is similar in terms of places and schedule. EE started with bits of Plymouth and Exeter and later did South Devon, now 3 is mirroring that.

If South Devon is getting 4G it looks like 3's rollout is paralleling EE's. Still next to nothing in Cornwall except for overspill from Plymouth.

MicroUSB is pretty poor, but I believe one of the main reasons for moving to it (apart from it being thinner) is that the springy contacts that wear out are in the cheap cable, not the connector on...

For pay monthly, at least:

If I want to call 3, it's an 03xx number. Same cost as a geographical call, or inclusive. Or free from a 3 phone.

I was under the impression that the Virgin backhaul also handled MBNL 3G too, that's why upgrades to DC-HSPA weren't instant.

Even assuming an even split, 500Mbps per operator per cell site (?)...
