Just got a Lebara 5G Sim on the Vodafone network,  I'm in Blackpool. Vodafone sites say I'm covered for 5G, my download speed is 10mbs.....I had EE on 4G which was 7 times faster....anyone else having Lebara problem?

    It's not Lebara problem, I was Vodafone direct before and did testing, there was no difference between speeds of Lebara and Voda direct. So if it is slow it's the Voda network in that location or your SIM/phone settings.
    Remember the saying: if it looks too good to be true it almost certainly is.

    It just could be that Vodafone signal is not great in your area.
    Your best bet is to see if other people in your area have the same problem ask friends or family if you have any near by.

    Where i live in Essex O2 is terrible signal EE and 3 are the best Vodafone is not to bad but not great i also have a couple of Lebara sims on the 1p deal from last year.
