3 Named Best UK Carrier


Broadband Expert took a survey of over 11,000 people from January to August 2010 of the UK carriers. It turns out that Vodafone has the fastest network with an average download speed of 1.78 Mbps. 3 comes in next with 1.76 Mbps then Orange with 1.46 Mbps, O2 with 1.42 Mbps, and T-Mobile bringing up the rear with 1.07 Mbps. However, when it comes to customer satisfaction, T-Mobile comes in first with a rating of 71%. Then 3 with 69%, Vodafone with 68%, O2 with 65% and in last place Orange with 64%. T-Mobile also gets the fairest pricing award because they don’t charge extra if you go over the download limit, while O2 has the best pay as you go prices. But where it gets good is with coverage. Usually the winner is Vodafone, yet the it turns out it is actually 3.

Which means that because 3 also won the mobile dongle category, 3 has been named as the best overall mobile broadband provider in the by Broadband Expert in the 2010 Mobile Broadband Awards.
