T-Mobile UK vs Orange for Mobile Internet?
Hey, I know Orange & T-Mobile have merged but they cannot use each others 3G...
Now T-Mobile has almost the same 3G coverage as Three as they share base stations (and no I don't mean orange, THREE and t-Mobile share masts, they havent merged they just share masts).
But I think T-Mobile has slower speeds than Three... Can anyone on T-Mobile tell me what speeds on 3G are like?
Also on Orange I can get 1GB internet (for use on browsing, streaming, downloading, whatever I like). But T-Mobile give you 500MB Streaming & Downloading and UNLIMITED browsing and E-Mailing. (However some apps use a streaming connection so will eat into that 500MB).
What would you say is best? 500mb streaming and unlimited browsing or a flexible 1GB to use as you want to?
Finally what network would you choose overall, Orange or T-Mobile? and why?
THANKS IN ADVANCE!
