Mobile coverage check

For Ofcom helping to improve mobile coverage is a priority. The new map is designed to support people and businesses in choosing services that best suits their needs.

Around a fifth of homes now operate with no landline so a good mobile signal is becoming ever more necessary and with the trend for homeworking and non office based staff increasing, businesses must make sure the provider they choose enables their staff to work efficiently wherever they are.
