EE coverage Vs Plusnet

Hi - is it still the case Plusnet coverage is not the same as EE? These earlier posts suggest Plusnet do not have access to 800mhz network

Yes.

To justify the budget price tag. Plusnet only offer a subset of the full EE offering.

Hence the restricted number of bands, no short code calling etc.

I fear that you only get what you pay for.

Re: EE coverage Vs Plusnet

To put this straight I was with Life mobile only on 3G then was transferred to PN when they took over so it's a few years and was then onto 4G

I have a good signal on EE/PN  where I live and mostly where I go and use my phone as a hotspot at the caravan with no problems  PN let you tether and at 30GB U/L Mins U/L Texts for £10 it's a bargain 

You cannot use certain things but short texts are something I personally would never use because of the costs for some codes and repeat charges for others

It's a suck it and see and only a 30day contract its well worth a try for little cost 

I also have a Three sim  back up phone and the signal is not as good as PN but have it in case the  EE goes down
