Our team is currently engaging with all four mobile operators along with their industry body MobileUK to facilitate the roll out of further mobile coverage in our county, including 3G, 4G and 5G.
As Staffordshire is a rural county, we are showing a keen interest in acting as an enabler for the Shared Rural Network (SRN) project to increase our mobile coverage.
Delivering reliable mobile coverage
The SRN project is being delivered by the UK’s four mobile network operators (MNOs) with support from government. This will deliver reliable mobile coverage to 95% of the UK, addressing the digital divide by improving 4G coverage in the areas that need it most. Currently in the West Midlands and Staffordshire, coverage from all four operators is forecast to rise to 92%, up from the current 78%.
