What carriers do you guys use?

Just asking curious to see what people run and why.
Three and O2
(iD and Sky)
Three was my choice for my main number by process of elimination. Only network with 5G and B20 here where I live so good combo of fast outdoor and good indoor (EE B3 only and O2/VF B20 only). Smarty and iD still have free EU roaming which is important for me, with iD supporting upto 30GB 5G roaming vs Smarty’s 12GB 4G roaming - a clear winner.


Sky was free. lol.

Three, EE, Vodafone (Lebara) & O2, because why not? 🤷‍♂️
All SIM's are in a router, just so I can keep an eye on all 4 networks 5G progress in my home town of Kilwinning. :rolleyes::giggle:

Very expensive no?
Not too bad really xqplc, the EE unlimited data SIM is from Scancom which worked out at around £10 per month, and the three business SIM is an unlimited data SIM at £6 per month.

O2 and Lebara are £5 each for 10 GB per month which is fine for testing purposes xqplc. (y)

A grand total of £26 per month, not bad for all 4 networks.

Just an O2 Unlimited Data+Mins+Texts plastic SIM which currently costs £6.79/month.

It's not the best, but it gets the job done. I don't have a 5G phone and my area doesn't currently have 5G coverage from O2.

  • RWG for the house mobile - £20 for a year: 250 min, 250 SMS, 2GB per month
  • RWG for my 4G Nokia 2.4 - £free: 50 min, 50 SMS, 250MB/month
  • iD Mobile for my 4G Imo Dash when out walking or motorcycling, I might damage a phone and just need calls/texts to/from home or emergency on PAYG 3p/m 2p/SMS
  • Three for 4G Broadband, also using Lyca £3 30 day unlimited SIMs
 
EE unlimited esim and currently a 6 month 20GB Vodafone payg in the sim slot. When this runs out my Three unlimited data sim @ £6/month will take it's place.
I live and work in the west of Scotland so that pretty much rules out O2 and I still see too much 3G on Three to make that my primary line.

Where do I start - I Use 3 as my main - Thats for my Z Fold 5, S9 Ultra and Pixel 8 Pro. Also a SIM for MBB / TPL X80 5G.

Voda as a backup on Z Fold 5, Have SIMs for the family with Tesco on O2 and I use Spusu for EE (Also on Z Fold 5) as they wont clear me on their network...
(They have such a high bar...)
 
Sercomm router - Three Scancom 500GB sim
Sercomm router - EE Scancom Unltd sim (FUP)
NR5103E router - Three sim
Pixel 6 - Lebara 3GB (99p)
Xiaomi 10T pro - O2 40GB sim

For my main sim I have a 160gb for £10 a month Vodafone e sim but despite me being in a Vodafone host area there is basically no 5G around at all and recently I am finding Vodafone dropping down to 2G on some roads where it used to be 3G. And 4G being extremely slow in some locations and in one location I go to right next to the mast I am unable to load anything at all because it is a b20 only monopole shared with O2 so essentially useless

So I also use a £3.99 Lyca 30gb plastic sim that I get 5G on often and excellent 100mbps+ 4g everywhere I go

So I do sometimes question why I am still with Vodafone but it’s a mix of me having 160gb for £10 and also the fact that when I go into many buildings when I am outside them I can have 2mbps Vodafone b20 and meanwhile with EE I’m getting 100mbps+ B3 4G and also N78 5G but once I go inside I have no service at all from EE but still have 2mbps b20 from Vodafone which is admittedly very slow but much better than having no signal at all
