Now we just need Three to have indoor coverage...
Really think Three should change back to O2 as their fail-over network where they don't have coverage. Orange's 2G coverage is about the same as Three's own 3G coverage.
Orange (now EE)'s 2G coverage is pretty good actually, its just Three turned off the fallback roaming after they'd spent a few billion upgrading the 3G network. Round here we get fantastic Orange and T-Mobile 2G service (1800mhz) and pretty awful O2 and Vodafone (900mhz). Probably because they had to build more transmitters in the 90s they did, and that's helped in the long run.
If Three launch LTE at the 1800mhz frequency (as EE have) this could be good for radio propagation as 1800 is much better than 2100.
The 800 and 2600 frequencies being auctioned at the moment will be interesting to watch as which handsets will support these.
