I'm with Orange or EE as its now called I've been with them for 14 yrs and never been with another network so I can't say much about other companies
but I have always managed to get a connection while out in the sticks where others haven't.

I've just renewed with Vodafone, don't know why, wish I had gone back to O2 ! Unless you live in a big city the coverage is shocking. Apparently you can have G4 in London, I'd be happy with any connection that works.

Just been through this and ended up staying with Vodafone because of the deal they offered me. I've been with them 16yrs and Coverage has never been an issue.

13/month gets me 300 mins, 250Mb download, and unlimited texts.
Additional 5/month means Me, Mrs Nasher and the two younger Nashers can talk to each other 24/7 for the 5.
Then Piggyback contracted Mrs Nasher and the two younger Nashers onto my contract for 6.74/month each, giving them each 300mins, 500 texts and 250Mb. This is obviously additional to talking to each other 24/7 for the 5 mentioned above.

Considering I was topping all three of them up @20/month on their PAYG Vodafone deals we're a lot better off.

I never use my phone for the internet, so will probably reduce the cost down further by having the 250MB download removed from my contract.

Not that I'm aware of.
I thought EE was Orange and T-Mobile

My Broadband is with EE, perhaps I can get some discount by adding the two packages together

Dont think so-we had Orange in work vehicles and the coverage was shocking. My own phone has always been Voda as it was the only service provider that covered the run from the M5 to Barnstaple without dropping out for years.

They have merged with another company I could be wrong with Vodafone.

Just googled it, its T-Mobile.
