I get that when I'm indoors sometimes...
Check your network coverage here https://giffgaff.com/coverage-and-service
If that is all clear, try a manual roam https://community.giffgaff.com/t5/Using-giffgaff/How-to-perform-a-Manual-Roam/ta-p/4871794

Hi there @jevic66 

 

E stands for Edge or eGPRS (Enhanced Global Packet Radio Services). In this day and age, E is one of the weakest data signals you can get on your phonecame at the latter end of 2G, making it slower than 3G but faster than GPRS.  There maybe issues with a mast in your area, you can use the link underneath and popping in your postcode and see if there are any problems. https://giffgaff.com/coverage-and-service

 

As GiffGaff uses the O2 Network, be sure to check their Network Status also: https://status.o2.co.uk/

it just seems unlucky the signal is very weak where you are. should be better when out and about in different area.
