Three Mobile provides the best coverage inside London but can get patchy if you leave London.  Orange/T-Mobile are great for voice coverage but not so great for 3G coverage inside London.   4G is coming soon and Three is proud that it will be offering 4G at no extra cost. We kick start our 4G roll out in London, Birmingham, Manchester and Reading, with the aim of reaching 50 cities by the end of 2014.    Here are some tips to improve signal quality. On your phone:
  • Try sitting near a window.
  • Try using your phone in a different room as some rooms get a stronger signal than others, depending on the thickness of the walls.
  • Try switching your phone off and back on again.
  • Make sure you have enough battery life as this can affect signal strength.

 On Mobile Broadband:

  • To make sure you get the best from your dongle, MiFi or tablet with a 3G SIM, treat it like an aerial. You should think about positioning, so placing it upstairs may be better than downstairs.
  • Using the USB cable that came with your dongle will help to reduce interference from your computer and should make your signal stronger.

  • Try using your dongle, MiFi or tablet with a 3G SIM in different rooms as some rooms get a stronger signal than others, depending on the thickness of walls. The more windows a room has, the better.
  • If you have MiFi, place it where you have the best signal as it sends out a Wi-Fi signal. Placing MiFi by the window with the strongest signal in your house can significantly improve your Mobile Broadband experience. Find out more about our MiFi.
