Default Low signal since 4.3

Anyone on Djembey Mke using the MKE modem notice a lower signal since updating? I'm on EE in Southampton and I'm rarely on 1 bar maybe 2 max. Signal drops to E in my office now have checked with EE and no reported problems.

I'm on EE using MKE firmware+modem
I can't say I've noticed any difference, but let me know how you get on with MK8 modem. I'll give it a go if it's looking good.

It does seem to be a better signal, at my desk, on MK8, over MKE. Will need to test it further though.

For now, nice one Syd!

No difference for me at all. Still 0 bars and E when indoors. Probably the area though as a mate from london was down and his HTC had 1 to 0 bars in this workplace . Honestly EE has been getting worse. Probably time for a switch next year.

Guy sat opposite us on his Lumia 700 on O2 had full signal. Irritating when a mast sits in the middle of our car park.

After 4 days on the MK8 modem, I can honestly say that there is no difference, for me, to the MKE modem in the various locations I have tested it.

You're not the only one having problems with EE in the UK and their signals as these two articles point out...

This one is a breakdown of a BBC Watchdog programme that lambasted EE for their signal problems...

As do the landlords of The Hunters, Kings Head and Red Lion!

(I always wondered how they could afford villas in Spain and Caribbean cruises. )
