Does anyone know of any reputable or disreputable sources that I might use to compare, in a general way, the quality of coverage people get with the different mobile carriers in Sydney?
Is there anything in the way of mobile companies in comparison to what whirlpool forums is to broadband for example? Whirlpool has a phone carrier section but the comments don't seem overall helpful when I look through it.
Does anyone in Sydney, or with general knowledge, have any input to make on the matter when it comes to selecting a company? For example right now me and my wife are with 3, and the problem we have is that they sort of suck when it comes to having repeaters inside every shopping plaza and parking lot. I know from a friend that he does pretty well with Optus in comparison to where my connection fails. I've heard mixed things about Telstra, and that Vodaphone is merging with 3, however 3 customers who on a current contract won't benefit from the changes unless they change their contract, which means paying it out. My wife isn't obligated to pay out her contract, so I'm searching for her, but the thought of a company requiring that people pay out their contract just to go back with the same company pisses me off. I payed out 12 months of 3 about a year ago and the reality is that you should get all your minutes when you do that, but you don't.
I rambled as usual. Biases set aside, does anyone have any input into who offers better overall coverage in Sydney?
