UK’s biggest mobile networks agree deal to tackle poor rural 4G coverage

The mobile operators in the UK have taken a pledge to invest around £1bn for one ‘Shared Rural Network’ (SRN) meant to tackle 4G notspots.

The four mobile operators, Three, EE, Vodafone and O2, have penned down proposals in order to boost 4G rural coverage across 95% of the country by the year 2025 through £530mn. Meanwhile, the government has committed to invest up to £500mn, thus bringing the overall value of the agreement to around £1bn.

As per Ofcom, the present geographic coverage of 4G network from these four mobile operators stands at just 66%, with 8% places having no coverage in any way. Besides, a recent analysis on the network coverage data has also shown that 8 in 10 UK areas lack a full coverage of 4G.

Under the new ‘SRN’ set up, the four providers will be investing on one network of existing and new phone masts which they’ll share equally. This would result in further coverage for around 280,000 premises as well as 16,000 kilometres of roads. The consumers would be dependent upon their own operator’s network for using their phones at wherever place they are.

Notably, the SRN is subject to a legal agreement still and the proposal is yet to arrive at an official agreement early the following year.
