Rarely get 3G, GPRS/EDGE is terrible!

Is there any way of getting 3G coverage in an area largely dominated by GPRS and EDGE signals? Please help, sick of the slow speeds of GPRS and EDGE!

Does your Vodafone carrier and complete 3G coverage in your area?

Can you look at their coverage maps and detemine this?

no, not in my area, is there any way to do it? or do you know if they're planning on expanding the 3G network now? or is their main priority 4G?
