Grateful for any recommendation for a mobile phone supplier who's signal is reliably receivable between Hertford & Stevenage via Waterford & Stapleford.

I am on O2 (iPhone) and have an unreliable signal round the Watton at Stone By Pass but it is okay through the villages. My OH commutes to Stevenage and he is on Orange (Samsung Galaxy old model) and has the same problem but I would say his is marginally better.

You could try looking at these sites to see who has the most coverage: This site usess the old Sitefinder data but bare in mind it's from 2012 ... J#map:id=3

While here they claim to be up to date but noticed some sites don't appear. ... tford&Z=14 Though you may have to zoom in quite a bit before the sites placement marker appears.

But to give you some idea. Vodafone has a mast at Tree Heritage, Orange Bramfield Ln & Warrenwood Ind. Est, Three Warrenwood Ind. Est
all three site share to the right of the A602 before Mill Lane

Thanks for the responses.

We are on Three and have had major issues with getting a signal when our car broke down. Although generally we're very happy with Three we want a cheap PAYG emergency phone for when we can't get a Thee signal.

It looks like either O2 or Orange will suit.

It does beggar belief that within a few miles of one of the centres of world commerce (no, not Dane End) you cannot , & never could , get a reliable signal.
