still in the 20th century?????


[link to this post]
 
Hi, I am not asking anything, but I'm just going to tell you a few things about my village.

mobile- I only have 1 bar of 2g
- vodaphone saying that they are making stronger 2g when everywhere else has 3g

Broadband - adsl - should be 7mbps download according to DSL. I only have 1.5mpbs
- not even getting fttc until October


I am so annoyed!!!

An obvious place to put the extra runway that is needed and an HS2 link too!

Vodafone doesn't have much 3G coverage UK wide. Other providers are likely to be better mainly EE is the most likely to have 4G/3G.

Yeah i got to say i love EE signals I've not found myself without 3G yet even when i was on a farm in the middle of nowhere which was pretty surprising.

I can go from EE 4G then 10 feet away indoors drop to GPRS.

Getting some elevation helps of course.

Was a surprise to find their 4G network was here, after years of GPRS on both Vodafone and Orange. The Vodafone is so flaky I have a SureSignal.

Join the club, 1 bar of 2g outside my house on O2 only, forget the others. ADSL market 1 exchange, currently 2mbps, FTTC around October this year with a 69% chance of getting Superfast broadband according to our local BDUK website. I don't even class myself as "out in the sticks".

checks out at 4 to 6M on ADSL on the BT checker. Is your 1.5 the best possible ?
