    I can confidentially state when 4G rolls out on Orange/T-mobile, it will be the worst 4G to date.

    Wouldnt touch Orange or T-mobile with a 10 ft barge pole.

    I'm sure it will seeing as no other UK network has 4G yet :p

    Why couldn't it be O2? Would love 4G with them and I know they'd do it well.

    Same here, but O2 and the other networks won't be able to roll out 4G until next year.

    Rumours are that Three will be leasing 4G space off Everything Anywhere, then you can see hw 4G will be done correctly.

    Not a rumour, Three have actually purchased 4G spectrum from EE.

    Whether they will be allowed to use it before next year is another matter, but I agree with your sentiments.

    3=great data network.

    3 is the best data network by a significant amount IMO. Have 3 for my iPad, O2 for my phone.

    Everything everywhere is miles better than O2 for 3G coverage.

    Three is king but annoyingly has no coverage in 2 places I frequently visit.

    Looking forward to EE 4g myself

    There is no "better" or "best" network.

    What's best for person A, is worst for person B.

    Pick a provider that has great coverage where you live, work and socialise and you're good to go.

    For example, Orange was shockingly poor coverage for me, but 3 has been the best so far.

    I have friends who are on Orange and say its the best for them and 3 is the worst.

    "Best" is very subjective and "What's the best network to go with for my iPhone", is a question that can't really be answered by people on forums.

    I always suggest that people grab a PAYG SIM card from all 5 of the (UK) networks and try them to see which one gives the best performance.

    In my experience i would agree, there reception around Manchester for me is awful. I'll be so happy when my contract is up with them.

    They should also get Visual Voicemail sorted.......... moan finished:D
