Hi all we are coming up in September for a couple of weeks and was wondering what the mobile phone networks were like in general on the broads now as we have not been up for about 5 years I have O2 and Vodafone on mine and my wife's phones just wondered if any others were worth having as I run a Limousine hire company and don't want my drivers not to be able to contact me should there be a problem any feedback will be great

Thanks
Norm

If in doubt trim out

Cell phone coverage varies between suppliers and depends on locations, its a bit of a black art predicting which is best / worst.  Horning is a well known blackspot for most networks.  I'm with 'EE' (Formally known as Orange) it does ok but does have blackspots at Horning and a few areas on the Ant too.  Salhouse is OK if I walk up the hill.  Standing on the coach house roof often increases the signal strength.  If you are on a Rag-n-Stick, shinning up the stick would help!

Norman hi,

I have Vodafone and normally have no problem with signal.  Having said that I do tend to spend more time on main rivers.  I would think having 02 as well you will be pretty much covered.  

Kind Regards
Alan...

Do a 'Google' search for 'mobile phone coverage maps' and you can get something like this - http://www.o2.co.uk/coveragechecker
These are only 'predictive' coverage charts and I know that as I worked for a mobile phone company that they are not exact as local conditions can cause variances.  Trees are wonderful at blocking out mobile phone signals so bear this in mind if you're in heavily wooded areas.  Cheers.

Iain

Hi

I've used Vodafone on all the Northern rivers for many years now and never had a problem anywhere.
