As part of its long-term economic plan, the government has set out plans to eliminate the poor mobile coverage that blights a fifth of the UK.

Culture Secretary Sajid Javid today said mobile users in many parts of the UK regularly suffer from a poor signal leaving them unable to make calls or send texts.

These areas  “so called partial not-spots” have coverage from some but not all of the 4 mobile networks (EE, O2, Three and Vodafone). Depending on the network consumers are on, they therefore may have no coverage.

The Culture Secretary is determined to improve coverage from all 4 networks in these areas and has therefore launched a consultation on the various legislative proposals that can help achieve this.

This will give the government the chance to hear views on these proposals from all interested parties.

The consultation closes at 12am on 26th November 2014
