Vodafone is a disgrace. Massive under investment in 3G. They are a solid network for voice but for data, at the rear again. For Vodafone very much how the Romans lost Rome. They went off to conquer the rest of the world and forgot about the heartland.

Vodafone will need to roll out an amazing network to tempt customers back after such poor customer service, and slow sporadic 3G data.

Vodafone covers 30% of population but it's service is excellent, again it's all set to prove slow and steady wins the race, even in the Ultrafast 4G race :)))

And yet half of my county (Kent) still doesnt have 4G. Its well and good covering the larger cities. Fair enough, there's more people there. But those of us who actively try to avoid the bigger cities are suffering for it. When are EE going to fill in the gaps between the cities?

I wonder if EE will acknowledge the mass issue they have with 2G in Brighton since the masts were upgraded?
Somehow since the 4G signal was launched we've had endless amounts of people with 2G phones coming in complaining... 2 Masts with 2G signal apparently working in a big city is madness!
