News reports in the last few days state that MPs believe that mobile phone companies should allow customers to roam between networks in the UK where they struggle to obtain reception.
They highlight the fact that Foreign visitors to the UK are often getting better signal than many Brits as they are not tied to any provider, so can use the strongest available signal.
The report sited by MPs by the British Infrastructure Group, said 17 million UK customers had poor reception at home, and it named 525 areas with non-existent coverage.
NOT good for those wanting to stay connected.
The cross-party group of about 90 backbench MPs called on ministers to make sweeping changes, including changing the law to allow domestic roaming in the UK, making it cheaper for customers to switch provider and identifying the worst phone networks.
The report said mobile phone coverage in the UK had not improved significantly since 2014 when the government agreed a £5bn investment deal with the network operators.
However, here at Glemnet we’re delighted to say that we can resolve this problem rather niftily for our business mobile users, thanks to our fantastic Multinetwork solution– Meaning that as long as there is a network available we will connect you to it automatically…a massive boost for users on the move and operating in areas with reduced coverage.
