MP demands action on mobile phone coverage

Arran MP Patricia Gibson has criticised the lack of mobile phone coverage on Arran and has backed calls from the Federation of Small Businesses (FSB) for the UK government to improve Scotland’s poor mobile phone coverage.

Figures released by the UK regulator Ofcom show only 17 per cent of Scotland has 4G mobile coverage, compared to 60 per cent south of the border.

In more than a fifth of the country, it remains impossible to make or receive a mobile phone call at all. In a third, people cannot access a mobile data service.
