Thread: 4G signal in Southampton/Eastleigh

  1. Default 4G signal in Southampton/Eastleigh

    Just thought this might be of interest to anyone struggling with BT Mobile.
    I've been with BT Mobile for years, but in the last few months, the 4G signal has been virtually non-existent in both Eastleigh (home) or Southampton (work).
    I ordered a new SIM from BT, but no difference.
    I then ordered a Giffgaff SIM and on putting it in my phone today, I have 4G blazing on my phone wherever I am.

    If you're getting a strong signal but its still slow then Its probably network congestion - ie too many people trying to connect to that providers masts. I had a similar problem in reverse near Brighton. Vodafone were really slow and switching to BT improved it.

    BT Mobile use the EE network (naturally, since they own it)

    Ah yes it's EE. I'm with three and I've never had an issue.
