4G coverage checker launches

Mobile phones

A new 4G coverage checker has launched, enabling you to check coverage across networks – almost drilling down to street level.


The coverage check, which has been launched by mobiles.co.uk can be filtered for all of the major networks (EE, Vodafone, O2) and also by type of signal (4G, 3G, 2G).

Jay Karsandas, Digital Manager at Mobiles.co.uk, said: “Despite a slow start, the UK has made significant progress in the provision and speed of 4G. Where there is some catching up to be done in comparison to some countries, the major networks understand the consumer and the need to create a better connected world. There is still a responsibility from networks and retailers to educate the general consumer and businesses on the benefits of 4G, as well as ensuring they can make full benefit of the technology.

“It is likely that the initially high price point of 4G dissuaded consumers from taking contracts that utilised the high-speed technology. With a range of flexible and competitive 4G plans on offer by major retailers, and a race to provide the most UK coverage, 4G will inevitably be the future of mobile connectivity.”
