Comparing mobile broadband in Bolton
You shouldn’t have any issues using broadband on the move throughout Bolton. Good indoor and great outdoor coverage on 3G networks is reported by all of the four main providers: EE, Vodafone, Three and O2.
You can also get 4G in the Bolton area. EE’s 4G network may become a little patchy indoors on the outskirts of Bolton’s town centre. They do, however, offer a Double Speed 4G service which seems to iron those issues out and gives pretty consistent coverage over the town and the outlying areas. If your contract and hardware supports it this can offer outstanding mobile internet speeds.
Three’s 4G fades off indoors to the south-west of the town and Vodafone customers might find that their 4G coverage is stronger outdoors towards the south-east but both are otherwise fairly reliable. O2’s indoor 4G coverage is much better to the south of Bolton than to the north.
If you just need an inexpensive and basic mobile data service then 3G mobile broadband is ideal. However, 4G does offer much improved performance and many dongles, tablets and smartphones now support it so it doesn't have to be costly to use.
