Best Phone Coverage in Blandford?

#1
I'm sure that this question must have come up before, but the Search function being what it is I'll ask it again....

I'm hoping to get a posting to the home of the Royal Corp shortly. This “happy” event coinsides nicely with my Orange contract being due for renewal. Blandford is famously bad for mobile phone signals, so which company currently provides the best coverage of camp? I'd like to be able to continue life without a landline so (DHE dependent) I may need coverage at Pond Bottom.

Vodafone. Everything else seems to play up.

Though the lack of available quarters on camp will mean you'll probably be living nearer Poole. :p

Vodafone as the mast that feeds the others is on the wrong side of the water tower and iirc facing the wrong bloody way.

Went one year with O2 and got now signal, went last year with vodaphone, fair bent the needle on my vswr (good buddy )

Cheers gents. I'll not be getting an iphone then.

I agree, definitely Vodafone. I had O2 there fairly recently and it was rubbish. Unless you like standing on one leg whilst leaning out of the kitchen window!

I find land line the best....................

It's the School of Signals therefore nothing is going to work. Try tin cans and string.
 
#15
Get an HTC Desire on Vodafone. Good signal, excellent phone.
 
#17
Sooo, any update on this 3G coverage with 02? Vodafone?

On a course there soon
I have a voda iPhone 3GS and was at Blandford only a month ago. Had absolutely no issues getting on Facebook from either the school buildings, the sgts mess or the craddock. It was much faster than the cable internet in the office too.

Get posted somewhere decent. Problem solved!
Can't help but agree with that, we did some work down at Blandford up at LSRC, what a dump the town centre is, it looks like it got to the 1970s and then stopped. Home of the Royal Signals, no coverage. You'd have to be American not to see the irony...
