Welcome to Vodafone Community
I've just posted another thread about lousy coverage at Waterloo Station. Lots of promises to improve service in this thread but seemingly no action.
From what I see around the place, Vodafone can't cope with the capacity issues. Everything works during none Peak periods but come rush hour they get saturated and they don't care. They probably don't even test during those times to see if we are telling the truth or not.
I'm looking at moving to O2 as I heard we also have that option at work.
Waterloo is regularly tested and optimisers regularly look at performance, in fact work in hand currently to re-balance traffic at peak times. O2 is a really bad option as they have very limited spectrum and peak performance is worse than all other operators especially at peak times. Which platforms or areas are proving to be a problem?
I was recently at Waterloo station and the surrounding areas. I was carrying contract SIMs from Vodafone, EE and O2 and a Pay as you go SIM with addon from 3. It has to be said that Vodafone's performance was, on average, probably the best of them all, with Vodafone and EE in close competition.
As for the remaining two...
Has this been fixed yet? I've been using Three for their US roaming but won't be off to the US for a while now and Three have no data availabilty at Waterloo at 6.30pm at all. So I'd like to move to a network that at least lets me look up train times.
@andykn I'm not sure what Three's USA roaming offer is, but our Global Roaming Plus is included with all Red Entertainment plans sold with a phone from 15 August 2018, or a Red Entertainment SIM only plan after 4 September 2018. So that means no roaming charges in 77 destinations worldwide – including the USA 🇺🇸
We also offer the Network Satisfaction Guarantee, which allows you to test our network for 30 days. If you're not 100% happy with our service, you'd be able to leave with no strings attached. You could also pick up a free Pay as you go SIM to test our network first to see if it'd suit your needs and let you easily look up train times 😊
It’s not fixed. I checked my original post on this and it was 2 years ago. The data download speeds are really slow at peak times. Vodafone either don’t know how to fix it or don’t care. I would not make your choice in the hope that you would get better downloads.
