  Good morning.
We are ( hopefully) moving to Neatishead from Berkshire at the end of the month??
Can anyone advise on best mobile phone network reception in that area please, and also wifi and broadband?
Many thanks??

  "3" seems to be the favourite at the moment. We had reasonably reliable connections to both phone and wifi
during our weeks holiday in July.

  I have always found that Vodafone is good around the broads area. For Broadband you will be lucky to get 2Mg so supplier is not so important

  I use the 3 network and this is generally good, but there are dead spots in the Broads area.
I have high speed broadband in Ludham, so I don't see why you can't do the same in Neatishead. Often it depends on distance from the exchange and Neatishead covers a big area.

Welcome to the area.

  I use 3, and mostly it's not too bad. However my pal uses Vodafone, and he gets a good signal almost everywhere, including the Horning black hole! Most annoying to hear him chatting away, when I've got "no service".

Regards, Ray.

Whatever happens now, I'm blaming it on Brexit. Everyone else is!

  Have to say that I have ditched 3 in favour of Vodafone and now have a functioning phone even in Horning.



Old enough to know better.

  Hello again Nigel.
Who supplies your broadband? Is it fairly quick?
I'd heard broadband is very slow on the broads.... some of my family ( including me) are a bit lost without it! All though hubby is hoping we have nine atall and no mobiles!??
Many thanks,

  My broadband is BT Infinity. About 30Mbit down and 9Mbit up. In theory you can get faster, but I am too far from the cabinet.

  Likewise SteveO not many places now with no reception, Voda seems to work very well almost everwhere...
