    That's nice

    Any chance of putting some 2G coverage in the North while you're at it? O2 coverage is bobbins near my folks.

    Oh too little, too late

    Got fed up with network busy messages a while ago. To the point it was getting difficult to make calls in the city around 5pm.

      Had EXACTLY the same issues with Vodafone at Fulham Broadway in London. Can't send SMSs. Can't make phone calls. Network busy. FFS.

    NSN press release

    Too late for me

    I left O2 months ago because of their shit network coverage (in central London!). Very happy with Vodafone now, thanks.

      Hmm..

      My friends on Vodafone can rarely get HSDPA coverage in central London in various buildings. I'm consistently happy with T-Mobile's coverage and my phone falls back onto Orange if ever necessary which seems to be very very rarely and only went in the countryside.

    Pity they can't do something about SMS delivery reports....

      Alert

      I'm glad I'm not the only one who gets annoyed about that

      All the other networks seem to cope with SMS delivery reports. How about it, eh O2?
