Virgin Mobile says goodbye to EE, switches to Vodafone masts

There’s a number of “virtual” operators to choose from when you’re looking to get a new mobile or a SIM. You really shouldn’t shy away from them either, because they’re as good as the “big four” for the most part. Under the hood though, they’ll use the masts …

Better coverage in the country. The Shared Rural Network.

A figure you may not see in many headlines is the fact that just 66% of the UK landmass has 4G coverage from all four mobile operators. With all this talk about 5G, it’s surprising that we’ve not got a higher 4G coverage. Of course, the operative term …

The Huawei Mate 30 – Missing more than just Google Apps

Huawei is a massively successful company. We’ve been to see them in China. We visited the university that teaches staff, the accommodation where workers stay and play.

EE responds with unlimited 5G too

When EE launched their 5G plans we noticed that the example 5G plans were £10 more expensive than the same 4G ones. After a bit of digging, there were bigger disparities, so we had to question – why? It’s something that Three couldn’t understand either, and they announced …

Spotify added to EE Music Data Pass

When we detailed the new EE plans you may have noticed that one streaming service wasn’t included in the “data free” list, and that was Spotify. Well, my friends, this morning I can tell you that EE have added Spotify to their Music Data Pass, so if you …

Rootmetrics, a US based company founded back in 2008, has one sole purpose – to provide mobile network performance information. Today they have published the results for 2019 testing of the UK networks. By using a batch of store-purchased Samsung Galaxy S9  smartphones, the testing itself was conducted …

HTC, remember them? Now you can’t buy their phones.

Once upon a time there was a smartphone manufacturer called HTC. Nearly everyone had one of their phones, but now there’s about 15 people buying their phones each month. It’s sad to see, it really is. I reviewed the HTC U11 and I’ve had a hands-on with their …

Changing networks – Text to Switch Explained

Today marks the start of a new method of changing networks. For all too long people here in the UK have had to call the infamous “Retentions Team”. They will try lots of things to keep hold of you as a customer. Sometimes this process has a good …

BBC iPlayer and YouTube now added to the EE Video Data Pass

Heard about the Video Data Pass? On EE it basically means that you can watch as much video as you like from selected providers without it impacting your allowances. We covered it and the other Smart Plans in detail back in May but now there’s some even better …

OnePlus 7 now available to order

Don’t get confused, this isn’t the 7 Pro (that’s the one on the right), so you won’t be getting the flip camera or Warp Charge. The screen is a bit lower resolution and the battery is slightly lower capacity, but it’s £499 for the 6GB model. That’s definitely …

Compared – 4G vs 5G

There’s no doubt about it, 5G is going to make an amazing difference to your data speeds. The throughput is astonishing and we’ve seen examples of entire movies being downloaded in seconds. There is, though, two very important changes that 5G will cause. The first, rather obviously, is …
