I’ve only noticed this in the last two days. I’ve used Orange/ Virgin for the past 7 years because we can see the mast (on a water tower) across a nearby field. Always had a brilliant signal and good 3G, even though we are in a rural area of North Essex near Finchingfield. Now the signal is only one or two bars at most (no signal 50% of the day) and GPRS instead of 3G. Are they dropping the wattage or even taking the cells out?
