What’s the best phone network?


Thinking of prying myself away from my current one but have no idea which are good. My current one included for honesty.

  • Vodafone
  • EE
  • Giffgaff
  • Three
  • O2
  • Plus net
  • Tesco mobile
  • Virgin
  • Other (please state)

All help and feedback appreciated!


Generally much of a muchness nationally. Really depends where you live and what kind of deal suits you.

i’ve been on O2 for years but Three seem decent


no idea at all, I’ve been on pay as you go with vodafone since I was 15


not Vodafone. would definitely go with someone else if I didnt get a significant work related discount with them.

tired of them boasting about how great their network is when half the time it’s shit for me, and any times I’ve asked if they’re going to improve their network coverage in areas near me where I can barely even get 3g they say it’s fine and actually my fault :clap:

No complaints with SIM only giffgaff.


i’m really interested in flexibility, as my current provider has me locked in to this stupid idea where you can only ever ‘upgrade’ to something of an equal or higher priced tariff.

Theyre so good for this


i’m about to switch to VOXI, which is vodaphone for millennials (I am not a millennial) .

seems quite good as the payment for phone is kept separate from the tariff and the tariff is flexible, you can switch it every month or leave completely, and the tariffs seem quite reasonably priced, and all social media apps dont use up the data.

i’m doing it sim only £15 for 15gb and unlimited calls/text


might be able to get away with the £10/6gb if social media doesnt come out of the data and I remember to download spotify stuff

id mobile sim only. no complaints other than sometimes I get 3g instead of 4g in really congested areas like London.

16gb/unlimited calls texts - 10 quid a month

Was on EE but got a good deal with Virgin so switched to them. Found out while I was researching them that they use all the same infrastructure. Had no problems so far. Only place I don’t get signal is at work, but that place is a black hole for all networks.

Can’t remember which use which, but I think it said there are only two companies that own all the kit and the different networks use one or the other.

Was all set to get virgin’s £10/10gb deal then they jacked up the price, good work virgin. While researching it I found there are differences, like a speed cap and not using a certain frequency band range, doubt it makes much difference though


O2 ripped me off for years.

GiffGaff are ace.

Giffgaff don’t seem to offer much data tho? I am a data rinser- need about 50gb (but not entirely sure why…)


It’s gonna be Spotify isn’t it




I pay £20 for 20GB a month and I stream a lot of music.
