Rural areas across the UK are being 'hobbled' by poor mobile phone reception

15/05/2017

Rural areas across the UK are being 'hobbled' by poor mobile phone reception, says a survey. Full or partial mobile signal 'not-spots' affects 70% of firms, according to the study by the British Chambers of Commerce (BCC). But the proportion of companies based in rural areas which report such issues (91%) is considerably higher than those in inner cities (56%). 'Not-spots' are areas of no mobile coverage by any operator, while 'partial not-spots' have some coverage but not from all networks.
