Network coverage

By: daveynix | 05-06-2015 14:09

I love giffgaff, but the coverage into area (north east of Scotland) is terrible. I can't get 3G at my house!! 


This is appears to be due to limitations in the O2 network coverage. 


My idea: talk to other network suppliers and offer customer the option of giffgaff (O2) or giffgaff (3) and so on.

Or or even better - allow your users to automatically connect to the strongest 'partner network' at any given time!!

I don't think it would be a deal easily done by giffgaff to use other providers masts. I think it is sorry to say that giffgaff would not be the provider of choice for you in your area unless O2 have plans to improve their coverage in the area then I would consider the wait and use another network in the meantime.

??PS you can already get "work on best network" SIMs (they are usually for business) but it quite expensive.

Why not get hold of one of the free EE network SIMs (either EE itself or one of the many MVNOs which operate on the EE network).  If you get good service that way and once you are satisifed with the service (in particular that you can port away again if it turns out to be a dud), then consider porting your normal number.

Have you seen the new "delightmobile" offer on EE for example?  It sounds too good to be true to me (remember Ovivo) but great as a second mobile number / backup.

The Peoples Operator however looks  much better to my mind.

I think with Three likely taking over O2 - if the networks merge that might be your best hope - it might happen automatically at some point?
