Hi,

Which mobile network gives the best coverage on the Northern Rivers, especially Horning ?

My contract is up and I'm just wondering about changing networks if it meant obtaining better coverage.

Many thanks,

Michael.

Hi Sloshed
I live in Stalham and only use my mobile for text
messaging, with the occasional incoming call from my
wife. I use Vodafone and have had little problem with
it anywhere in broadland, whether in the car or out on
the water.
Regards
Mat

hi micheal,
we changed our phone network earlier in the year from t-mobile to virgin . while stayed in horning back in september , i tried our phones and to our surprise they'd worked , whilst moored outside the ferry inn . when we was with t-mobile we never had any reception there  . but overall were happy with virgin network and on monthly contract with them .
cheers

steve and vicky

I've unlocked my Siemens phone and I have Tesco (02), Orange, & Vodafone pay as you go cards which I also use in my Nokia PCMCIA laptop GSM/GPRS card.

I have to say that the Vodafone is way in front with coverage. I cannot get a signal in South Quays with any other card....   Smile

We had decent signals with both Voda & Orange in that area this year.

Reception round Horning with Fresh is hopeless - give it a miss. Good everywhere else though

I've only tried Orange, BT Mobile (which at the time used T-Mobile) and Vodafone.

In my experience Vodafone is way ahead of these in most places on the Broads.

I've never found O2 to be much good on the Northern rivers. I often want to use the WAP facilities of this site to look up pub phone numbers etc only to find I've got no coverage.

When I was trying to phone the Lion Inn on Saturday morning (from near St Benet's) I had to stand on top of the boat and only just about got a signal. We subsequently discovered that friends on Orange had full signal strength..

I use o2 at the moment but will be changing to Vodaphone.
The reception with o2 is poor on the north rivers but many of my friends at the New Inn use Vodaphone and have no problem even getting a signal inside the pub.
