The signal is awful where I live, although it could be fantastic in some places. But what really lets Orange down is their service. It was so bad that I eventually left, and two weeks after requesting my PAC code, I received a letter from them. It said they thought there were many reasons to stay with them, but the best they could come up with was Orange Wednesdays (you can get two for one cinema tickets on Wednesdays if you're with Orange). But they couldn't offer me a decent phone service, which is what I paid them for. So I went over to Vodafone. Much better - no comparison.
