    Just advising anyone to not go on '3' when choosing a network. Unless you live in a big city the signal is pretty shocking, don't be dragged in by their deals

    Technically speaking they have the most 3G coverage in the UK. And technically speaking they have more coverage than O2 and Vodafone.

    But at the end of the day it really matters where you live/use your phone the most. Every network has blackspots so that's why i recommend to anyone to use a pay as you go sim first before signing a contract with any network.

    So tbh i don't agree with your first post. I've seen other people say what you've said for T-Mobile/Orange/O2/Voda. And if that was the case then no one would be with any network :P

    Go with the network with the best signal in your area and a plan/price to your liking.

    All down to opinion I suppose

    How many of these network arguments are we going to get.

    Yes 3 have statistically improved. However they most definitely have blackspots, just like other networks do. Ask local friends how their signal works. Like I've mentioned before a friend of mine couldn't get 3 signal and before I switched to Vodafone I had hours where I'd get no orange signal in my house.

    It's all down to personal preference and at the end of the day you'll be stuck with that contract so don't just listen to what others say on the internet (myself included) since they aren't in your area.

    I would also agree that it depends on your area. I live in a fairly small town, and have quite a decent 3G signal on 3.
