Anyone else on Three having serious signal issues? - Wherever I go, no matter what City it is seriously poor goes to -95dBm tops at any given time. Been like this for a while now, even on my HTC One

However when I have tried my o2 sim card, my signal is full strength everywhere.. I wondered if maybe this could be solved by flashing Three's modem (H3G) to my phone. And Does anyone happen to have it? saves me downloading the firmware and extracting it.

Unfortunately I don't have the modem for you, however my signal hasn't been affected at all recently ! If anything its been quicker, Last night was on 10mbs using 3g/hspa - Give them a call, they are no doubt working on upgrading your services and didnt inform you via text

Well 4G is supposed to come here (York) next month, but my signal has been super poor for about 3-4 months now, was in London the other week and Leeds a few days ago and it was the same, internet is pretty intermittent also. Guess I'll have to ring them and shout at them again.

Hmm, I'm thinking it is possible my SIM is a tad dodgy maybe? - I'll give them a ring tomorrow and see what's what, cheers for the replies fellas.

Yeah worth a call, Like i said my signal and speed has been brill lately ! tip - remove your sim and turn the device off and on before you call otherwise they will just fob you off with that and get you to call back after or from another line !

2mb/s download speed - Some people would say thats 20mb connection

Not sure if its a good thing that my mobile phone has a better connection than my fixed landline

Sounds like sim could be dodgy! I'm in bournemouth and i'm getting Good speeds (19MB) and i travelled to wales and back and got pretty good speeds, average about 16MB but i have noticed that the Note 3 definitely doesn't get as good signal as the 1020 i have... For example, my note 3 will have no or one bar but my 1020 will have 2 or 3. And sometimes the Note 3 will display 3 or 4 bars but as soon as i go to call it says "not registered on network". Thats only out in the middle of nowhere (Wool, Wareham).
