Comparing mobile broadband in Sefton
If you own a 3G device in Sefton then you’ll generally find very good coverage from Vodafone, Three, O2 and EE. Indoor and outdoor use should receive a strong signal around the centre of the borough – although you might find indoor coverage drops off occasionally towards the outskirts with everybody but Vodafone. Three’s Advanced 3G using HSDPA gives fast download times for those who want 4G speed but who don’t own a compatible device.
If however, you are looking to upgrade to 4G mobile internet while out and about you’re looking at a choice between three networks. Vodafone and EE provide the most comprehensively unbroken coverage across the region, with EE having improved their network to double speed broadband in some areas. O2 covers the centre of Sefton well, although there are areas to the north-west where you won’t get a 4G signal indoors. Three’s coverage is the weakest in this location currently; you’re only going to be able to use their 4G outdoors at the moment.
In order to use mobile broadband you will need either a USB dongle or mobile Wi-Fi hotspot, or a data enabled tablet, iPad or laptop. In our mobile broadband section you'll find a wide variety of packages which are available with a hardware device or as a SIM only option.
