    I'm with o2 but not happy with their network, so which one should I go for this time?

    (this poll is for network coverage/reliability....not tariff prices)

    I'm with o2 and get great service. On my last speed test, i got 1.4mb/s which I thought was pretty sweet. However, I am not happy with the 500MB a month limit, but I suppose I could just use WiFi when I am at home.

    I'm currently on O2 but am switching to Orange for 2 reasons:

    1 - Signal strength at home - I have zero O2 signal at home, rendering my wonderful iPhone useless. A few friends have iPhones on Orange and always have full signal in my house (also means I can add them to my Magic numbers and call them for free)

    2 - Cost of iPhone 4 - It's actually cheaper for me to pay off my contract with O2 and sign up on Orange than it is to take O2s early upgrade offer.

    Orange.

    Would consider going to Vodafone but dont see the point in going to O2 when its completely unusable at festivals and any major event where there a few people there.

    Have Orange released their tariff / handset prices?

    I'm going with T-Mobile, I get full 3.5G signal in my house, the town where I live and also where I work so its the obvious choice for me.

    Orange, because they have the best coverage for places I go to.

    O2

    They have the best network coverage for the places i go - Manchester all the way down the M6 and M5 to Bristol and then all the way across to London. I don't care much for the other parts of the country as i rarely visit. They also have the same core values as apple regarding their customer service.
