Three massively reduces planned 4G coverage for 2015


[link to this post]
 
Hi All

I've mapped the changes to Three's planned 4G coverage for "end of 2015".

https://www.google.com/maps/d/viewer?mid=zOAnXJFLQHC...

As you can see there are lots of places that will get reduced coverage. It seems that Three plan to fill in some gaps in their existing coverage without expanding out to more remote areas like Kent...

All info came from Three's own coverage plan page http://www.three.co.uk/Discover/When_will_I_get_4G

Yeah I know but only "single-speed" and outdoor only coverage... not worth even trying.

I've managed 25mbps download and 10mbps upload on "single speed" which beats Three's 4g here (which managed only 10 down, 5 up).

Interesting, thanks. I did wonder about the possibility of switching to Three as they had stated that LTE would be coming to Yeovil by the end of 2014. Turns out they have dumped plans for pretty much all of Somerset now instead!

That's shocking.

Glad I migrated.

I need to point out to everyone that this misses some towns, mainly ones that were enabled early and therefore never part of the 2014 end-of-year plan. These towns will likely be the "50 main towns"

But even with these missed from my map as green dots it still doesn't paint a good picture. If I can find the list of the "50 main towns" I will add these.

I'm also considering adding a note for "New" towns that are actually already live.

Original plans:
http://www.itpro.co.uk/networking/20600/three-bring-...

Of course, there is no guarantee that those were done either. I noted that Hull was one of the "removed" ones from your list ... yet appears on the plans above; not done then either, I guess.

It's a shame they've scaled this back so much and not made any announcement.
