We’re building our strongest ever network

The network you can depend on

Our network is now even bigger and better, reaching more people and places than before.

And don’t just take our word for it – independent industry experts P3 think so too. As part of their connect Mobile Benchmark 2016 awards, they’ve named us:

  • The #1 network in the UK
  • The #1 network in London
  • The #1 network for Voice in the UK

P3 also confirms we’re the most improved network since 2015 – especially for browsing, chatting, streaming or working on your phone.

By investing over £2 billion in both our fixed and mobile network, we’re ensuring it’s fit for the future and suitable for the increasing demands of people and businesses – and the everyday services you rely on up and down the country.


UK’s #1 network: Awarded “Best in test” by connect (four operators tested, two winners). Network performance assessed independently by P3; four operators tested between 21 September and 4 October 2016 in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. Coverage may vary.

London’s #1 network: Network performance assessed independently by P3; four operators tested between 21 September and 1 October 2016 in Greater London. Coverage may vary.

How we improve our coverage

We work hard to continuously increase and improve our coverage across the UK. We do it in a variety of ways: physically building new masts that provide coverage to geographical and population areas that we didn’t cover before; deploying new masts in areas we already cover, to increase the capacity of our network; adding more spectrum or new technologies such as 4G to existing masts; and reducing downtime on our network by fixing faults and outages more quickly.

Check network status

We're really proud of our network's performance, but we know our signal can sometimes dip or slow down. Chances are, we know all about it and we're already fixing it.

Wi-Fi Calling
