Graph is smoother too on the download, which means at that point of testing it should be more consistent. Nice.

Cant beat EE for speed. o2 is about max 10mbps down and the same up although signal is weaker.

All three tests being much more sensible, and a usable speed if repeated at various times for a couple of days smile.

Dont think it will replace my land line but useful as a backup. 3m USB cable on the way. Be interesting to see if hanging at the window improves anything.

That suggests to me that in your area O2 has only 10 MHz spectrum, and EE has their typical 20 MHz spectrum. 10 MHz is akin to a single carriageway road, and 20 MHz is like a dual carriageway.

That explains a lot. GiffGaff is around the same speed.

Maybe more users on o2 than on EE. Or latest offers on handsets people liked were on o2.

Most people think all the networks are the same apart from price.
