@Occasional - I’ve checked and you’re in a low 4G coverage area.

Please test changing your phone settings down to 3G only, to see if this improves it.

Thank you for the reply Gemma.

I have done as you suggested and now just get GPRS when on 3G. I don’t think the 3G is working.

@Occasional It looks like we've done some work recently in your area which could've been affecting your 3G coverage. 

As @Gemma has previously mentioned, you're in a low coverage area for 4G. Changing your device settings down to 3G only should help. Please test this again and let us know how you get on and if possible, please also include a screenshot of a speedtest

I can’t even get 3G now but it’s fine when I travel so not my phone. Perhaps the work has gone wrong?

Still no signal on 3G or 4G. When will this be fixed? How is it that your updates fail so quickly or is it that you move equipment from site to site?!?

Is all this a big joke? Just had a look on network map and yes there is an issue in my area but why has coverage on your coverage checker now been downgraded to just 2G indoor and outdoor when it was 3G indoor and 4G outdoor yet I could get 4G very well indoors.

@Occasional Our coverage checker is a computer generated prediction, so should be used as a guide only.

@Occasional - Our network engineers have performed some maintenance to your local site and they haven’t found any faults.

They’ve also advised 3G and 4G is expected to be poor at your location and this would include when indoors.

With the maintenance they’ve done, you may notice a slight improvement.

The coverage gets worse and worse, how come when I used to get very good 4G and even better 3G both inside  and outside. When will you sort this?Have I been miss sold my contract?
