Right now I'm getting the full five bars on DC-HSPA but only one bar when switched to 4G. Are they not using same masts?

Not much an improvement, glad I'm not paying extra for 4G right now.

That was always my worry with 4G 1 bar signal draining battery.

Today I was in Leyton East London and didn't get a 4G signal but now I am in Stratford near the Olympic stadium and I have 4G and 4 Signal bars.

That looks good. I would love to know the criterial based on which Three is connecting people to 4g. I am on payg so I am assuming I will be one of the last people to get it. Oh and I live in South Woodford and am going through Stratford everyday to work so I will be thinking everyday how people are getting 4g and I am not. If you have a chance to go through the city (Liverpool str, Oxford str etc) could you please check if you have 4g connection? I am assuming you will...

@nicv27

Yip, they're kind of the speeds I'm expecting.

When I'm in Liverpool city centre next I'll check if the 4G signal is stronger. I was expecting the ping to be lower though too as this makes the connection better for gaming.

I am a Pay Monthly Customer and have had a 3 Contract for about 10 years.. Don't know if that's why I have it. On Friday I should be working in Blackfriars So I will do a test there and hopefully Sunday, Weather permitting I will be going to Oxford st and Covent Garden and I will try there also.

I wonder what the fastest speed anyone has had on any 4G network so far?? Better upload speeds is welcome too I can't wait to try my LG G2 in white on 4G as it's super fast already!!!!!! Three told me it is just rolled out as & when they get round to activating it on your account. They told me nobody takes priority over anyone else. But I guess they would tell me that I am on my 5th month paying my bills on time they should be giving me 4G now £38 per month & I look forward to using tethering on my computer with 4G all being well i get a signal

The 4g coverage is not great. I live in South Woodford and there is no 4g after Stratford. Also I work near Bond Str but I could only get 4g coverage near Oxford Circus. I don't know about Vodafone and O2but EE 4g coverage is much better (I have a EE 4g sim card as well)

Lol that's pretty much what my signal is like
On 3G @ Aussieland

But if I walk up the road into another near
Town I get full signal it's just absolute crap
At home and it makes my battery run out
Really fast :/
