Re: Internet speed

Personally I would not recommend something to friends and family until I had tested it properly for myself.

Re: Internet speed

Are you sure it's the entire county of Derbyshire? Or can you be more specific, which post codes are you referring to.

 

I find it unlikely that the whole of Derbyshire is not covered by O2 as that would be ridiculous. And O2 should do something about it.

Re: Internet speed

Although this is stating the obvious, there are many areas where the internet speed is fantastic. I live in London (again, I know this is stating the obvious) and I could not ask for better internet speed. I am not even that bothered about 4G, when it arrives, because the speeds I am getting now are perfect for a bit of light browsing and playing the odd youtube clip here and there.

 

Sorry that giffgaff isn't for you - it is not for everyone.

Re: Internet speed

well for SK13, they are carrying out mast maintenance which will impact on your 3G speeds.

 

SK13 is also a rural area if you move to Glossop does the signal get better?

 

According to the O2 coverage map (http://www.o2.co.uk/coveragechecker) the 3G signal sould be fine in your area. hopefully once they've completed the maintenance the 3G will get better. But to be honest in a rural area and gettings over 1Mbps you're doing well.
