Mobile coverage for voice and data (2G and 4G services) is below the England average in all areas of the county except the main cities* causing widespread concern amongst businesses and communities across the region.

The programme aims to improve network coverage so that people can make reliable mobile phone calls and use 4G across the whole geography of the county, including A and B roads, and rail services by 2022.
