3s 4g rollout is painfully long and will not reach you anywhere near December. Just keep that in mind.

This is true. However a decent ultrafast phone would do until then. I want a phone with a replaceable battery I always buy them with them built in which means they are knackered in 6-12 months.

Ill see where I am then. Still got the cash to save now smile even a 3 3GB ebay sim would give me 5mbps up so I don't have to stay with EE

My iPhone battery lasts just long enough to get me from wall plug to wall plug, with the odd stop off in between.

Yep if your usage is low why the hell pay for an expensive VM connection. I'm heavy on Netflix, we have it on the TV now so I need my home broadband really.

Lucky - testing with my Three PAYG SIM in my new 42mbps capable "mobile wifi" box - I get at best 10meg download and its VERY variable from 6 to 10, in about 3 locations (home, friends, and inbetween) and the best upload I saw was 3 meg, most of the time it was 1.5meg. Not been to EE store yet, will try next week.

Oh I've always had Netflix but my backup and free sky connection is running it just fine

Something happening with EE I'm suddenly getting 15mbps down. I have done a screen site ill upload it later I'm on ipad.

But it's always been 8 and never more

@jc I have a 3 Miri which I unlocked that's about the same on 3 but I've used giffgaff too

The site could have been connected via microwave using older equipment which may have been replaced. A few LTE masts are put in place before this upgrade.
More backhaul (assuming it was always hard wired)
Or it finally got hard wired

Or whoever has been hammering it has finally gone away for a while.

Few possibilities

They must be silly to hammer it its expensive

The upload is still half what I had on contract but it'll do

I've been to the woods where the 3 are. The highest one IS the Orange cells (the kit at the bottom has the logo on) the second highest is O2 the one actually in the tree line is Voda.

So I hope they turn that one on too
