    Anyone with poor EE coverage and good Vodafone coverage get ready to shop around.

    EE's coverage is deteriorating rapidly as EE decommissions transmitters and creates coverage blackspots which did not exist previously. What a bad move by Asda Mobile.

    EE are not decommissioning masts anymore. In fact they are upgrading over 6,000 ex Orange masts into the MBNL network to support the latest 2G, 3G and 4G standards. This consolidation will be complete at the end of 2014 and should leave EE with the best possible network with over 18,500 masts and 99.2% 3G coverage and 98% 4G coverage.

    Yes the decommissioning of masts has affected users but ultimately it's leading to a better network.

    Personally I agree they are more expensive than others but some will be happy with their prices. They are, at least, lower than Orange's on PAYG.

    My signal actually improved with the merger I think I am the only one :P.

    I am hoping to leave EE soon, terrible coverage.

    No matter what network they use they are still very uncompetitive on price!

    I'm puzzled that networks still see 100MB as a usable amount of data in a month. My phone would use more than that just in the background.

    However, ASDA's call centre (in Rothesay, Scotland as I recall) is superb.

    This could be interesting.

    I wonder if it will be for new business only or if there is going to be a SIM exchange operation.

    I can't think of an example of a Mobile Virtual Network Operator moving network.

    Does anyone know how this could be done ?

    Lycamobile has switched networks in a number of other countries in which it operates. If you're looking at how it can be done from a technical point of view, this would be a good example to look at.

    A mild Scottish accent is probably the clearest accent in the English speaking world, unlike the accents of most Indian call centre workers who not only have problems making themselves understood to customers but also understanding what customers are saying to them. We're not talking about strong Scottish accents such as Rab C Nesbitt's.

    I don't personally have any issues with what you said in-fact with stronger Scottish accents I struggle too. I find this with some Indian, Irish, Yorkshire and Welsh accents. It isn't meant to offend it's just the accents I am used to and the differences in dialect.
