Not quite true.  It depends on the signal.

Hi there and welcome to the community.

Have you tried to perform,a manual roam.

1) Go to your phones "settings".

2)Select mobile network options.

3) Change the Network Selection Mode from Automatic to Manual

A list of available networks will be displayed after a few moments.

4) Select any other network that is not your home provider network. After a few moments you will see "No Service" on the display.

5)Now select your home provider(which is o2) network and change the selection back to Automatic.

hello my friend - you may want to look into your phone and find 3g only mode so that u get a fast connection instead of connecting ti 2g!

Are you currently getting a 3G or 2G signal on your phone. It could be that although your signal is good you are in a 2G only area. Does the service checker show good calls and texts or good mobile data too?

Unhelpful and abit rude tbh if I had broadband I'd use it. And I don't think watching a couple of videos on YouTube is classed as demanding.

Not rude and correctly spelt (some of that was rude, do you know which bit?)
