Government crackdown on mobile ‘notspots’ | BBC News
“The government plans to oblige mobile operators to improve their coverage, possibly by sharing rivals’ networks. Partial ‘notspots’, where there is coverage from some but not all of the mobile networks, affected a fifth of the UK, leaving people unable to make calls or send texts, it said. One possible solution would see people transferred to rival networks when they lose signal. But experts are not convinced this would work.”
Meanwhile, home secretary Theresa May has reportedly moved to quash an attempt by her cabinet colleague Sajid Javid to improve mobile phone coverage by warning that the plans could aid terrorists, according a leaked letter.
