    Which networks have best signal over the campus? Are there any which don't have signal in certain areas? Specifically in Runnymede 2, since I guess everywhere outside should have signal.

    I'm sure it's not on purpose, but I find the SU, Crosslands (bar in Founders) and Medicine/Stumble Inn (ie all places that involve getting wasted) have poor reception.

    Stumble I can understand as it's below Medicine and Founders doesn't surprise me given how old it. Medicine's normally ok though.

    Hmmm....might have to double check Medicine then - I could be basing that opinion of it from when it was Holloways. Not that they've done anything except remodel the insides...*shrugs*

    I've not noticed any problems whilst walking around outside. I've not been in the giant eyesore that Management call their home, so I don't know what the signal is like inside.

    I'm with t-mobile and the house I rented was rubbish signal-wise for me, though my housemates (not with t-mobile) didn't have any problems. Outside the house there were no problems Aside from that I think most of campus is fine, except for the bars and SU as people have mentioned.

    A lot of people from a number of networks had problems getting signal if you live on one of the lower floors/in the corridors of Wedderburn (you have to be right by the window) I suspect that other halls might suffer from the same problem. O2 worked well for me last year and, bar what I just said about lower floors, I had signal all over campus.

    on O2 outside is fine, but as far as I know all of the "new halls" (williamson tuke butler gowar wedderburn) all have pretty terrible signal. in my bedroom on the top floor I didn't get more than 3/5 bars and no 3g, and on the bottom floor you nearly have to sit on the windowsill to have a conversation. Stumble has no signal and medicine very little, SU was fine for me.
