We are all using more mobile devices out and about. Some for GPS or tracking and some just to pick up emails or catch up with social media. In coffee shops this may mean logging onto Wi-Fi but more and more of us now just the mobile data bundles with our mobile phone contract.
Coverage and capacity of mobile phone service on Anglesey has always been an issue. It is hence good to hear that one operator , EE, has announced it is to update 14 rural site sin North wales by the end of the year.
The investment is part of the Shared Rural Network (SRN) initiative to extend coverage in rural areas.
SRN is a programme between the UK’s four mobile network operators and the UK Government to extend 4G coverage to 95% of the UK’s geography by the middle of this decade.
Although EE will be upgrading their masts, all three main mobile networks will be able to use the masts. Hence, coverage will improve for users of all networks.
On Anglesey the mast in Llanerchymedd will be upgraded.
