I don't use many minutes and texts now so Flext35 is a bit OTT and I have an iPhone and have got a PAYG SIM with unlimited web access provided I top up £10/month which gets me 300 texts and £10 of calls a month - more than enough for me at the moment and I thought would be ideal.
Yesterday I put my O2 SIM in my phone - it has HSDPA so I thought I'd be OK.
Wrong! The max speed I have got is about 580k but I can run the same test (it uses speedtest.net) again and get 29kbs (that's download not upload!) with T-Mobile I once got less than 600kbs but I used to get 1200kbs but recently have been getting 1400-1800kbs and if I did get a 'low' reading it was a one off.
I got a colleague at work to try the speedtest as well (on O2) and we were both getting very erratic readings - he once got over 900kbs but most were either ~580 or ~29kbs and this was on full 5 bar signal.
3G coverage on O2 seems poor round here as well - we wnt out yesterday evening and were down to 2G.
I think I'm going to have to phone T again and the best they offered me was to extend my existing arrangement for another 18 months.
Oh well, £20.51 for Flext35 (old version with free voicemail but they've just put up the price of 08 numbers and I don't get to text abroad) and W'n'W Plus is not bad I suppose.
Is it just me, but when I look at http://www.mobiholic...fs/#entry989095 the cheapest plan I see is Flext 40!
