Just to throw in to the mix....
T-mob is pretty ok. Works in Horning Smile  Blackspots for it are from the first sign for Brundall heading to Yarmouth to just after Brundall Bay Marina. Another blackspot I know is just past Somerleyton.
I've used voda and T-mob on the broads without too much hassle, but have seen people holding the phone up in the air to get a signal (O2 cusotmers I guess lol) which given they didn't have hands free made me wonder how they were going to get their head to arm height to be able to speak when they found a signal above their heads Smile

I did once rig up a carrier bag onto the halyard of a yacht mast outside the blue shed in Horning.... typed in my text message, pressed SEND, and ran the phone up to the top of the mast.
Earlier, ground level, attempts failed - but that particular message did get sent.

I'm with vodafone, very good coverage on the broads, even in Horning sometimes, only blackspot I have found is Loddon.  Surprised to hear you can't get a signal in Brightlingsea as I lived there for 5 years until recently and never had any issues.  Unless you really are near the water then you might have caught the Point Clear/St Osyth black spot!  (Which, I've been reliably informed, is due to the fact that they are actually still living in a time warp before mobiles were invented!)

Evening, all,

I have an ancient Nokia 3310, only bought for emergencies originally, so imagine my disappointment when I was on O2 to find it was out of contact more than in contact whilst on the boat. Changed to Vodafone and never been unable to make a call or send a text since. Even in Horning! The old uns are the best.

Regards, Ray.

Hi Charlie, as you know Brightlingsea I can tell you that I live three quarters of the way down tower Street, right in that blackspot you were talking about, if I go up into the high Street the signal is quite good.

All the best Ted.

Eddy,
That would explain the problem, far too close to Point Clear, you must be almost back to the 1960s down there!  Evil Grin
I must much further up the town, off Red Barn Road and had a perfect signal.
