It's phone upgrade day on Monday. Looking at my tarriff options the 4G ones are 5 more than the 3G ones.
4G coverage is not too good in my area (Hoylake), anyone know how quickly good 4G coverage will spread? Is it worth me getting the higher tarriff and waiting?
Cheers

I'm with EE, based in Eastham but often travel and find that the coverage is pretty good on most of the Wirral and Liverpool City Centre

I'm on Three at the moment and I'm due to get upgraded to 4g soon. It's still due to be unlimited data and tethering too. I travel around alot too, and had no signal problems apart from when I was out in the sticks in Portsmouth last month

This problem, seems to be worst around this estate and also down this end of Leasowe RD/Pasture Rd. There used to be an Orange mast on Tarran Industrial Estate. EE discontinued it and the signal dropped from 5bars to one bar, unless I stand on the back bedroom wihdow sill!
The other problem is pure BT and is connected with the copper cabling between the house and the local exchange. But it is alao time related and is,I believe, to do with the way BT controls the access to its system!

The "coverage" shown is largely in EEs mind. I watched them de-commision the mast on the indutrial estate and my signal drop to zero, as did the coverage at the Pasture Road end of Leasowe Road. A lind line phone call of complaint got me a free "mini Hub" which works well in the house. It also bought an admission that some customers would be inconvenienced. Ha Ha , so don't quote EE propogander

I am with Orange on 3G which changed to EE. The 3G signal on Twicky Dr Leasowe is terrible, there seems to be a black spot between two masts along that road. 2G isn't affected and works great.

Back in Birkenhead the signal is great. Waiting to upgrade to iPhone 5s on EE this summer. How is the 4G signal on the Isle of Man?
