Do virtual networks get the same signal as the main network?

Generally, do virtual networks get the same signal, or does the main network get priority? For example - do giffgaff customers get the same signal as O2 customers?

Yes, but when there's a problem the virtual operators have less clout in trying to sort the problem. You have to go through them, and only if they want do they then forward the problem to the actual network.

giffgaff gets exactly the same signal as O2. There is no "priority" given to O2 customers.
