Hello

Does anyone else have problems with O2 in Hampton ?  I find my coverage very poor with constant dropped calls or bad lines.  I am thinking of changing my provider but wondering if other networks are the same?

Do tell ...

Hi Helen,

I'm with Vodafone and have similar problems, so I use a Vodafone SureSignal box which transmits the signal over my wifi using my router. I now have a good signal all round my house. The box only works with Vodafone unfortunately and I don't know if any other providers do anything similar.

I hope this may be of use to you.

I'm with 3 and have difficulties too...

There's a thread of the Vodafone customer forums complaining about the weak signal in the TW12 area. It was fine until the summer then disappeared completely. There are various responses from the tech team ranging from "there's a problem with the cell and we're dealing with it" to "there are no problems with the cell, have you tried turning it off and on again?" which only goes to prove they don't talk to each other.

I am considering asking for a SureSignal box (they're £100 else) but that doesn't solve the problem when out and about in the area. I was thinking of moving to another provider, but perhaps they are all having similar problems.

my wife is with 3 and cannot get any signal at all in the house. I am with vodafone and was fine until the summer :-) Now it comes and goes!

I was with O2 for years but then I found I couldn't use my phone in my house, since move to Vodafone and all is fine, O2 and Hampton are not a good mix!

Just another comment, but I have been with O2 for years and in Plevna Road and Avenue Road it's never been a problem for me. Go out of Hampton / London to the country and in comparison, we are so, so fortunate in Hampton. I can not speak for other providers.

I am with BT mobile and live in Tangley Park Road, never can get a proper signal in my house, everyone who visits my house has the same problem no matter which phone service provider they are with, my property is a real dead spot for reception, we sometimes end up having to stand in the garden to make and receive  mobile phone calls.

Until about a month ago there wasn't a problem, but now....hopeless!

Not even Third World standard.

Networks trying to cope with too many mobile phones, not upgrading to handle the increase in traffic means the service is now saturated.  I'm with Vodafone, signal strength is random - either OK or none, according to them if you turn off 3G there isn't a problem, excuses seem to be, working on the transmission in your area, temporary problem turn your phone off and restart, too many people using the network at the same time, it's your phone!

Seems Skype is a better proposition.

Thanks all .. I have lodged my views with O2 and there is a long process involved until they will investigate. However they did offer me an option which I can use being a pay monthly customer - Tu go which is a booster. So will see how this goes. Fingers crossed.
I was on O2 and we had poor coverage where I live. I moved to T Mobile that swops between Orange if signal is poor and is owned by EE. I find it works well all around the area. I also use an iPad on the EE 4g and that's very fast and works at home.

Skype still needs a 3 or 4 g signal, as does Facetime, which seems to work better than Skype. Of course you can just use Skype on a computer, but rather large to put in the pocket Lol!
