-From [[https://toomanyadapters.com/buying-sim-card-united-kingdom/]] April 2019\\ 
-Four operators: O2 (GiffGaff), EE (was Orange; is also Lycamobile, Lebara), Three, Vodafone (VOXI) 
- 
-Best network: EE, then O2 and Vodafone.  Three has least coverage.  
-He recommends EE for most travelers as it has better network outside major cities.\\  
-You can buy in airport but you'll have more choices and spend less money if you wait.  Easy to find SIM card stores in central London; they'll discuss package options and install and activate the SIM in about 2 minutes.  No need to show passport or other ID; you get a SMS notification confirming all is well and then it works straightaway.
