      Hello All
      I am not sure if this deal were to go through I would be affected or not as I am
      now with 'Giffgaff' which I think is owned by O2 the deals are quite good as G-G
      calls are free which helps keep the 'costs down'............

      Maybe this will kickstart a 'tie-up ' between Sky/Vodafone if BT do succeed with EE
      as the forward march for quad status !! heats up. After all I believe vodafone are
      major shareholders in Sky !! Skymobile could become part of the Skytalk package
      to keep pace with BT...............

      Coverage poop, but cheap, CS has always been great even when they fork up they have always gone out of their way to correct it.

      Hope the coverage improves, the wife is with O poo and always has a good signal when I have none.

      I have both O2 and 3, to be honest was just about to give the 3 contract up as their coverage and CS are pretty poor, why am I with them in the first place, they offer good amounts of data, for little money, hopefully O2s CS will remain because to be honest will not pay O2 price for 3 service. But if this does allow me to use 3 where at the moment I can only use O2. So if the take over allows me to get full coverage on 3 then maybe I can have all my contracts with one company, next it would be nice to have three or more sims on one contract.

      My main gripe against Three at this time isn't that I have unlimited data, but that I can't tether my Laptop to my phone unless I pay £5 per month extra just for 1GB.

      I used more than this with my Pay-as-you-go sim whilst in Northern Ireland last September. I was only there for just over a week and used a fair bit more than 1GB.

      Sky Fibre Unlimited Pro: Connected at 80,000 kbps / 20,000 kbps
      Previous ADSL2+ Speed 19999 kbps 1153 kbps, Line Attenuation 17.5 db 6.9 db, Noise Margin 7.5 dB 8.7 dB
      Speedtest: 17.15MB/s 0.97Mb/s Ping 31 ms
