Best mobile phone coverage in the loop.

Post Best mobile phone coverage in the loop. 
Having been with Orange/EE for 15 years I've decided to look at changing my mobile phone provider. I'm thinking of going to Vodafone but I was just wondering what people's views were on which mobile phone provider gives the best signal in the loop?. It would be nice to be able to do a live log without having to stand on the magic stone or climb higher each time I want to send a post.

Thanks in advance.

Cheers

Interesting that I was looking at moving back to EE for that reason. I'm on O2 at the moment and well, it'd be quicker and more reliable to send a carrier pigeon.

Agree with POSTY - I'm with Talk Mobile which uses Vodafone network its useless in loop - might as well use a can and a piece of string (although missus can't get hold of you...)

Thanks for he replies so far Folks. So it would seem that Vodafone is not the way to go unless a iphone else has differing experience....

...I had an iphone, now a Samsung s5, with Vodafone, both total rubbish within sight of a hill, might as well leave it at home when I go to the loop!  No

Virgin mobile is ok on Cad East but at the lower part at the Bwlch it was one - two bars nothing to do with drinking so that is our conclusion for mobiles at the Loop.

I don't know if O2 have move a Mast but I was getting 3 bars on top of Cad East Yesterday and regretfully that meant the wife could phone me and
chat a load of b******* while I'm trying to watch where a couple of Eagles were going ..
The Signal down at Dinas was .5-1 Bars with spotty connection .. Haven't looked at the Bwlch as I'm usually driving

Thanks for all the comments folks, it seems that staying with EE might well be the way to go.

Cheers

If it helps there is 8 Orange/EE masts around the Loop, Brithdir,Dinas and Corris and close to BB and Welshpool Road,Aberangell and Cemmaes. no one else comes close to that  Good
