After migrating the family from VM to GG last year (mainly becos of dreadful VM customer service) I was looking forward to 4G speeds (not possible with VM unless I went onto another contract - long story!) Transfer of number went thru smoothly this morning but when I did speed check how disappointed am I !!
4G @ 1.79/1.37 Mbps
3G @ 2.76/0.54 Mbps
I didn’t expect ‘mega speeds’ in the real world (maybe 10-12 Mbps) but this is pretty wet - even olde worlde 3G is faster ?!
Rubbish VM did better than this on 3G ... and yes, I did a 4G coverage check before pressing ‘the big red button’ to move.
Will 4G speeds on the O2 network improve over time/usage or is this it?

Looking on the bright side at this rate I’ll be able to go to the cheapest goody bag as no chance of using a 8GB data allowance.
