Good UK Network (Mainly coverage, Speed for Data and little messages and talk)

Hi there,
I am looking for a good carrier that supplies 1.5GB or More data, good coverage in NN and between Birmingham and London(3G) with good speeds and support for messages up to 200 and talk up to 60 minutes.
Had Tmobile PAYG with Textboost and 500MB internet when topped up 15? and changed, because I forgot to top up, to smartpacks10 to have internet usage
The data there (1GB) is used off now at the 17th already, dont know why to be honest.

EE prices are a joke and in the main area (NN) not even on LTE.
Three seems fairly cheap with 15? but i am currently locked with my 920. (could unlock it though)

Not sure about the offers P4U CPW Orange tmob and EE could provide for me

Can take contract or PAYG. The advantage of tmob PAYG was topping up and not using it so I had around 80? recently on the phone.

Could also take my girlfriend over to the other network if that makes anything cheaper for combi offers.

Three is good for data. Bad for message and talk. Its 3G or no G.

If you want constant reliable connectivity that's when you want 2G, 3G or 4G likes of EE or O2 or Vodafone.

I've never had any problems with Three, always have H+ signal strength, but I guess that depends on your area & their network coverage.

I dont need much of message and talk to be fair.
I wanted to stay with tmobile but I am not sure about 12 or 1 month contracts and if they will lift the LTE Speed for example into the contracts, if EE will get cheaper, if CPW or P4U get the same stuff in cheaper contracts
just compared
16.00 12months 1000mins Unlimited texts 3GB
?18.00 30day 1000mins Unlimited texts 3GB
and they seem to be the same prices on tmobile and p4u.
So you would recommend to stay with tmob orange and EE network. or go to o2 or Vodafone.
compared the Internet you get tmobile even seems to be the best provider there in terms of charges

Vodafone. Phones4u customer service is terrible, they'll do anything to sell you something and then your gone.

Best thing you can do is go to their website and look for the coverage map, it shows where coverage is at its strongest, strong and weak as well as non existent. Good luck

I should add I'm paying 10.50 a month for 600 minstrel, unlimited texts and 500 mb of Internet on Vodafone, great coverage all around too

3UK is the best and cheapest. I used 3 in Leicester and when I worked in Birmingham. No complaints with the speed. 3 is okay in London, Manchester and Nottingham as well. Highly recommended.

O2 have the best customer service out of the lot of them. However, their max data is 1gb.

Three give unlimited everything. However, there customer service and coverage is rubbish.

I'm not quite sure about Vodafone data, but there customer service is terrible.

If your not bothered about customer service and coverage, then go with three.

Furthermore, I think tmobile and Orange are going end soon -- they will be both trading has EE.
