For those of you that frequent the Lake District, Peninnes & Welsh regions, which mobile network are you using & what is your experience when it comes to coverage?
I’m thinking about changing my mobile contract or maybe getting a separate 4g/5g hotspot (on a different network from my mobile) for use in the caravan while I am away.
Having recently got back from a trip to the Lake District, I was unable to get a useable signal from many of the summits or the campsite.
I also found that my signal was often weak or unreliable on a previous trip to the Peninnes & in some parts of Wales.
I realise that the Lake District is well known to have very patchy mobile coverage & coverage is likely to be hit & miss on all of the networks in mountainous terrain such as the Lake District, the Peninnes & Wales but I wondered what other people’s experience was & if any of the networks faired better than the others in these areas?
I’m currently on Three. I’ve generally been very happy with the service but have noticed that as soon as I leave civilisation the signal plummets & becomes a bit hit & miss.
My partner really seems to like O2 & often still gets a useable signal when I cannot.
I’ve heard that Vodafone has very good coverage (but I’ve also heard a lot of bad things about their customer service).
I’ve heard a few people moan about EE’s coverage with a similar theme to Three.
I guess that I’m swaying towards O2, even if it is a little more expensive.
Your thoughts & experiences?
