my twittering  

09:49 Considering going to the Irish Java Technology Conference in January. #

12:44 News flash: December is exhausting. #

15:04 Had a nice meal in Coman's with thesme and lazy_hoor. *burp* Also finally handed over some bookcrossing books I've had reserved for months. #

17:15 Someone told me that 3, O2 & vodafone use the same masts, so 3G coverage is going to be pretty much the same, no matter which you use. True? #

19:55 Biascut, yes, very proud. I have the power! *evil laugh* #

21:32 Enjoying That Hideous Strength, 3rd of CS Lewis's SF trilogy. So much better than 2nd. I've read more pages in 2 days than I did in 2 weeks. #

21:34 It's not really SF though. So far, anyway. Except for a couple of mentions of the other planets, it's being much more conspiracy/mystical. #

mobile masts
as far as I know, there's a grain of truth in that story about mobile masts; two things:
  1. Three has some kind of transparent roaming arrangement with Vodafone, so that Vodafone's network silently fills in the coverage gaps in Three's network, so Three's total coverage should be the sum of what their own masts provide and what Vodafone's provide.

  2. There is some kind of regulation (not sure of it's a planning regulation or a ComReg thing) that requires mobile networks to share masts where practicable. I think that this means, in effect, some masts will carry antennae for two or more providers, but not all. Just because two providers share a mast doesn't mean they have the same equipment mounted on it either, so a mast might carry 3G equipment for one network, but only GSM equipment for another, for example.

Re: mobile masts
Ok, so he was sort of right, but it would still be worth checking what O2's coverage is like.
Slowness in Dublin is probably contention, but I think we might be just out of the good 3 area at the new house.
