O2 launch new coverage checker
There's nothing more infuriating than buying a mobile phone or mobile broadband, only to discover they're as much use as tits on a window. And as we pointed out recently on Bitterwallet, it's not as if there's any guaranteed recourse if you find yourself in a post code with no voice or data coverage.
O2 are making a fist of assisting consumers in making an informed choice, by launching a new coverage checker. The interactive map allows the user to enter an address or post code, and then toggle between voice coverage and data coverage in that area.
It'll be no help whatsoever when O2's network service is seemingly switched off at random for several minutes at a time, but forewarned is forearmed and all that.
