Better mobile phone coverage coming soon

The planning application for a mobile phone mast on the B4035 near Pound Lane has been allowed on appeal. Harlequin Group say that they hope to have the new base station up and running before the end of this year. it will bring 4G mobile phone coverage to users of the Vodafone and O2 networks. The two other main networks, EE and Three, are not involved at present but could join in later.

Many people are customers of virtual network operators that run off the main networks. For example, O2 supports giffgaff, Sky and Tesco, so customers of these operators will benefit from the new mast. Consult the full list on Wikipedia if you are in doubt about your operator.
