Develop and widen UK (3G/4G) signal coverage

No part of this small island should be without usable signal. Solid signal is essential for on-the-fly business and the mobile networks in the South East (including Vodafone, Three and Orange) are extremely sketchy. When I travel to Norway I find my Vodafone phone picks up much better signal than when I'm at home on the South Coast (UK). We need to work on improving signal and rectifying 'dead zones' in and around the UK. Customers can do this by supporting high growth areas in this space (4G/5G); industry can help by the reinvestment of profits into infrastructure and government can assist with initiatives, if necessary. Once again, it's a small island and this should be a relatively simple problem to solve!

I agree that mobile signal is vital to effective communication (in life and business). In particular I thing the government should insist that as part of their license mobile carriers should ensure decent coverage on all main transportation routes. It is ridiculous that business calls can't be made from trains on main routes connecting out of London

Absolutely, it's important that mobile phones are, in fact, mobile.
