All the networks show strong where I am but just not in real life as far as EE/Vmob. Could you recommend a site to locate the masts in knaresborough, i will then walk the local streets concentrating on my phone whilst colliding with Telegraph Poles etc.
Thing is there are only 4 networks and there is a lot of mast sharing EE share with 3 and Vodafone with O2. So moving network may prove a little more complicated than it looks
Complicated isn't even the half of it!
EE & 3 have a 50/50 share in the MBNL joint venture, but that was primarily for 3G - the situation on 4G is complicated and 5G even more so. In some cases, site locations are shared, but the physical kit is now separate. In others, the passive kit is shared but active equipment is separate, and in some the antennas are common.
O2 & VF are right in the middle of splitting their "CTIL" sharing setup, and are back to - for all intents - going their separate ways albeit on shared locations.
That's not to mention the spectrum holdings that puts certain networks in a particularly good place. You really do need to look at each of the 4 network operators on their own merit - and then consider the piggyback "MVNO" operators after that.

Wow! So even if I'm looking at a future strong signal from Vodafone, it could be hamstrung due to limitation of the Vmob to Vodafone contract? It is complicated isn't it. I'll ask around and see how people are getting on. Cheers All.
