Doesn't look at all acurate for the two, admitedly fairly rural, locations I am interested in.
Obviously not enough testers to cover the entire UK.

Says 44000 people took part, I was one having the application running on the android phone, Trouble is everywhere wont be coved by that amount of people in the short time it was being done.

Nice program as it bought up a graph on the phone of time on 3G 2G or nothing.
I got 99.6% 3G, can't moan at that. 0.4 on 2G and never a duff spot. Nice.
On 3 network and HTC wildfire s phone, works for me.

I go knowhere but to work and back and maybe to Oxford (I did) and a walk in my town nearby so I would not give much data, same places every week, if everyonew as the same then silly test for the time and numbers.
But good for what it is if you live in an area where some of the 44000 went.

What a rambling, but my piece said!.

Well - I have been running this from the beginning and coverage snapshot map doesnt have a tile covering my house for any network!

I also spent a week on holiday on the Llanollen Canal where the signal was distinctly dodgy - often not even 2g coverage!

It is not obvious as to whether the exercise has now ended. Do I now remove the app from my phone or are they still collecting data?

Hello I have taken mine off when the piece on the home page came up. Guessing it has finished. Did sign up to something from the company doing this so they got my email, not heard anything but taken off, Been on pretty much from the start when I read about.
