OK for most networks, as far as I know, though you might be struggling in some of the more remote valleys.

3G coverage is a different matter, though. The map actually shows limited coverage in the town where I live but nothing else for 30 miles or so in any direction. I guess Edinburgh would be the nearest.

Of course, having mobile broadband where I live isn't a lot of use...;-)

I just can't fathom why, in areas where you can get 3G, the cost of using it is - apparently - several orders of magnitude cheaper than an 'ordinary' mobile connection...;-(

I suppose that in the Greater Scheme of Things, it wasn't so long ago that we were on dial-up connections... remember that iconic noise?

...doh, is there such a thing as an iconic noise?
