Comparing mobile broadband in Liverpool
Liverpool generally has very good mobile coverage with all four networks - EE, O2, Three and Vodafone - providing at least a 3G signal to the central and outlying areas of the city. That means you should have no trouble getting fast mobile broadband wherever you are. There is also access to the superfast 3G now offered by some networks such as Three.
4G is also available in Liverpool from all network operators, though 4G coverage throughout the entire country is currently patchier than 3G. It will give you excellent mobile speeds when available, but otherwise your device will fall back on the older standard.
