star this property answer text <p>Through the Mobile Infrastructure Project we are investing up to £150 million to improve coverage in areas with no coverage for voice calls or text messages. The project aims to address coverage in the final 0.3-0.4% of the population without basic coverage, and once built most sites in the network will have capability to provide 3G and 4G coverage. The latest site to go live on air was in North Molton in Devon, providing coverage to over 200 premises over approximately 30 square kilometres.</p><p>The Government is also looking to improve coverage in areas where there is a signal from one or more of the UK network operators, but not all four. We are working with the industry to find a voluntary solution and on November 5 the Government launched a consultation on proposals including national roaming, infrastructure sharing, reforming virtual networks and a coverage obligation.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Ofcom is committed to assisting consumers to exercise their choice and switch broadband service providers with greater ease and convenience. The new regime of Gaining Provider Led Notification of Transfer (GPL NoT) for switching between broadband providers that use the Openreach copper network should be implemented by June 2015. This new process should make changing providers more straightforward and transparent for consumers. No charges should be made for switching provider, however consumers must be aware of contractual obligations that might apply – such as the cost of leaving a contract early or charges for new equipment from the receiving provider.</p> more like this
