It is important for Tesco Mobile customers to learn the difference between 2G, 3G, 4G and 5G because in the Tesco Mobile coverage map it will give a clear description of what areas are coveted by which data service technology. Tesco uses O2's network which is good but sometimes Tesco customers can experience bad signal due to factors such as the type of environment.

Tesco Mobile Coverage Map

The Tesco Mobile coverage map is designed to give the Tesco Mobile customers a display of what areas has coverage. The Tesco Mobile coverage map gives a clear image of the areas in the United Kingdom that have strong and weak signals indoors and outdoors. There are also areas that have no service so Tesco Mobile customers should check the Tesco coverage map regularly in case they don't have service and it's because they are in a no service area. The Tesco Mobile coverage map uses Google Maps so Tesco customers must make sure to agree to the terms in order to use the Tesco coverage map.

Tesco 2G, 3G, 4G

It is important to understand the different types of data service technologies. For example, 2G is one of the earliest forms of data service and is a very slow and weak level of data. 3G is a lot faster than 2G Tesco Mobile customers who have 3G will be able to check their emails daily but will struggle to find a consistent strength of signal when browsing on social media and watching videos. 4G is the latest version of data service that Tesco Mobile has. Tesco mobile customers can benefit from what 4G technology offers, Tesco customers can enjoy browsing on social media and watching videos it does a good job at keeping customers alive online.

Tesco 5G

If you are a Tesco Mobile SIM only customer than you have good news because in the early months of 2020 Tesco Mobile will have 5G technology. This means all Tesco customers will experience data speed like never seen before and have the luxury of watching videos and not having to worry about it buffering. Also, another great feature about 5G is that if you are in a busy place the signal won't be weaker compared to if you only had 4G. There is a major difference between 5G and all the other data service technology.

The Tesco Mobile coverage map will show customers all the 5G areas in the United Kingdom. There are already cities and towns that are confirmed to have Tesco Mobile 5G technology.

What network does Tesco use?

Tesco Mobile does not have its own network because it is a mobile virtual network operator (MVNO) which means that they need to piggy back off another network. Tesco Mobile uses the O2 network which is a good thing because O2 is one of the major network providers in the UK. This also means that Tesco Mobile customers will receive the same network as O2 customers. The Tesco Mobile live status checker is linked to the O2's network coverage map so all levels of data service technology will be almost identical to O2's coverage. The best part about the status checker is that it is updating every hour of the day so customers can check at any time.

Tesco Network Problems

O2's network is really good which means it will provide Tesco Mobile customers with great network service. However, there will be problems that Tesco Mobile customers will experience with the signal that are out of O2's control. For example, if a Tesco Mobile customer is in a building with thick walls this will force the data signal to be very weak or even a loss of signal. If the weather conditions are very bad or the customer is around huge trees this will cause the signal to be weak. Most of these issues can be resolved by simply changing locations but Tesco Mobile customers must be aware of these problems.
