There are still a few rural and remote locations across the UK with poor mobile coverage. This is mostly due to geographical challenges or restrictions on siting masts in areas of outstanding natural beauty.
The Community Indoor Sure Signal scheme will create 3G coverage in around 100 rural community hubs, from pubs to village halls and community-run shops, in mobile coverage ‘not-spots’ across the UK. This builds on the success of Vodafone’s Rural Open Sure Signal programme.
Each Indoor Sure Signal will provide up to 50 metres of 3G coverage. So if you’re on the Vodafone network, and within range of the unit, you’ll be able to get a 3G signal. The 3G coverage may also reach outdoors, to beer gardens or carparks for instance.
