Network upgrading punches Everything Everywhere in the wallet

Dave Jones

Improving coverage...don't make me a laugh. I know loads of people who have actually lost all coverage as they've switched off masts.... i got out of my contract 6 months early because of this..

Everything Everywhere activates top-secret erections

Dave Jones

Everything Everywhere still have the problem of rubbish indoor coverage, as soon as you step inside you lose 3G, in the likes of shopping centers you lose 2G as well. As part of 'increasing' their coverage they've been turning off tmobile masts in Northern Ireland, myself and numerous other people i know have been contacted my tmobile and told we can leave our contracts early without penalty or take out a new orange contract and use their Signal Boost app (basically a software femcell) for coverage. Everyone i know decided to leave tmobile and switched to o2 or vodafone. I went to giffgaff (o2) and i've now got 3G signal all the time indoors and saved myself 180 quid on my remaining tmobile contract :)

Virgin Media to beef up mobile-data backhaul

Dave Jones

T-Mobile do limit..

My new tmobile sim (3 months ago) was limited to 300k. Took numerous phone calls to get sorted, i can now get 1MB. From what i've read online if you get your phone direct from tmobile you're not restricted, if it's through a third party it's limited to 300k. Of course there's no mention of this on their website. I'm guessing VM classifies as a third party, hence the 300k

Tmobile speed

T-mobile limit speed on sims sold via third parties, which i guess includes Virgin Media. My new tmobile sim was limited to 300k, took numerous phone calls to get sorted but i now get around 1MB. There's no mention of this on their website but there was definitely a limit on my account.

Fools and their money are soon parted........

If you're stupid enough to pay for an over priced iPhone in the first place, then o2 must reckon you're stupid enough to pay a fortune for the 3GS as well.... i'm waiting for the 3GS+ when Apple clock the processor of the 3GS at it's rated speed and enable 720p video recording and charge you fools a fortune again for the latest and greatest Jesus phone....

Heaviest Virgin Media downloaders face new daytime go-slow

Dave Jones

@ Phil Arundell

You might want to clean your glasses you're restricted by 75% not to 75%, so you're paying for a 20mb service and getting 4mb not 16mb
