More than 200 people have so far responded to our new survey on mobile coverage – and the reaction still seems to be that things are improving, but not fast enough.

Annette Mason-Gordon from Best of Suffolk has had concerns about mobile coverage near the Suffolk coast for years. She said: “The coverage is better than it was, but there are still notspots, especially when you are driving around. It tend to take routes where I know I will get a signal.”

Phone companies say they are working to improve coverage. A spokeswoman for Vodafone said: “We remain committed to improving the network, having invested more than £2 billion on our network and services across the UK since 2014 with another £2 billion planned over the next few years.”

Meanwhile EE said: “We already offer the widest mobile coverage in East Anglia, but it isn’t as good as it needs to be and that’s why we’re continuing to invest in upgrading existing sites and building new ones.”
