Also, if it did work in all those places you just "tested" why aren't they advertising it?

The 3 Mobile Broadband is fantastic! It gets 3G coverage in shitty areas of Lincolnshire that my O2 phone can't even get 2G signal.
I thought it'd be crap when the GF first got it, but I was quickly swayed. We use it for stuff like 4OD and it's faultless. The HSDPA coverage when you can get it is lovely and quick too.
