Just had a look back on 'e old org to see if its still going (just it would seem) and it appears that half the gripes on there are about mobile coverage.  What I don't understand is why folk seem to be using SIM Operators that are different from the Network Operators, which is fair enough and normal, but that the SIM Operators that they have chosen only have arrangements with single NetOps (Tesco, Giff Gaff, etc) and then they complain of poor coverage??

WTF is that all about?  Surely if they are going for a SIMOp that is not a NetOp, they would go for a multi network one?

You can even buy your Anywhere SIM card at Argos in Wick.  

Are 'e old orgers really as stupid as to expect wall to wall coverage from a single NetOp?

Only two companies do 3g in these parts, EE and 3, they both use the same transmitters when one is bad the other is bad. People who live close to Tescos Wick have o2 as well.
