Why can't I get internet connection even when I have 4g symbol

I've been into the EE shop to ask why, but have been told it's because the signal in Oxford is poor - this is happening all over the country to me.  Whichever app I'm trying to use, I get a message saying 'Could not activate mobile data network'.  When I use my phone abroad (obviously on a different network), I don't have a problem which makes me think the phone is set up correctly.  Any advice would be appreciated.

Hi @JoC_87

 

Welcome to the community. 

 

Is mobile data switched off within your phone settings?

 

What kind of phone do you have?
