With #Powerof5, we've tasked some of the UK's best Instagrammers to see what they can do with full signal - in some of the UK's most picturesque places...

Picture the scene: you’re out and about, you pull your phone from your pocket, capture a perfect picture and get ready to share it with everyone on Insta and everything grinds to a halt because you’ve only got one or two circles of signal. What a nightmare.

We’ve been working really hard over the past few years to make sure that’s a problem you rarely run into on our bigger and better UK network, which is why we’re celebrating the #Powerof5…circles of signal, that is. Read on for all the details.

Full signal, full steam ahead

We know how important is it for you to get connected and – more importantly stay connected – where and when you need it most. That’s why we’re working hard every day to make our network even bigger and better. The upshot? You should be seeing all five of those reassuring circles atop your iPhone’s screen more and more often, no matter where you go.

And that’s a great feeling, because when you’ve got full signal on your smartphone or tablet, you know that you can share anything and everything with the people you love the most to your heart’s content – without ever catching sight of that pesky buffering wheel.

So, to help you make the most of our network, we’re heading around the UK with some of the country’s best Instagram photographers – @paperboyo, @cestmaria and @hmiguelsousa – to show you how you can capture the magnificent scenery of the places with the #Powerof5. Because when you’ve got full signal, there’s nothing you can’t do!

And, as you can see here, the results are nothing short of spectacular.

We’ll be sharing the rest of the shots from our instagrammers’ time journeying to the tips of the country and the heart of great signal over the next few weeks, as well as finding out how they found their online fame, and gleaning tips for budding photographers everywhere. So stay tuned!
