    Wonderful, shame their 3G sucks ass anywhere outside of London.

    I wouldn't use O2 again if they were the last carrier in the UK. Far, far happier on Vodafone - better signal everywhere I go, and 3G that can pull 5Mb.

    lol, O2 fail.

    I was on O2 for 18 months when I got my iPhone 3G. I hated it. So much I changed the phone, because I thought the iPhone was just poor. Moved to Vodafone on Android and was happy. Now eventually I came back to the iPhone with a used 3GS, still on Vodafone, and never been happier.

    Sometimes it is good and reliable but i tend to remember the bad more then the good.

    They also said in their press release that when the service is opened up to the general public after the closed trial that speeds would likely not surpass 15Mb/sec. Still nothing to laugh at, but the speeds show are only going to be usable by the test group for the time being. Until they seriously reinforce their infrastructure they will not be able to provide 100Mb coverage to the mass market.

    Great

    Now they need the raise their stupid 500Mb basic monthly data cap and bring their prices down.

    No point in having 15Mb/Sec - 80Mb/Sec which such a pathetic cap.


    I'm on o2 and consistently get 3-4Mb and it's been a much better network than orange and vodaphone for me.

    I would say three(3) and tmobile were the next best.
