Thousand of miles of British roads ‘have no mobile phone coverage’

More than 4,500 miles of British roads have no mobile phone coverage, analysis by a motoring charity has suggested.
  
More than 4,500 miles of British roads have no mobile phone coverage, analysis by a motoring charity has suggested.
 
About 2% of all roads in England, Scotland and Wales have no 2G coverage, the minimum required to make a call or send a text, said the RAC Foundation. Almost 29,000 miles have only partial coverage, while 14,554 miles of road have no 3G coverage, it added. Phone operators said billions of pounds a year were being invested in coverage – which “has never been better”.
 
Stretches of road without coverage include the A149 in East Anglia, the A591 in Cumbria, the A93 from Perth, and the A494 in north Wales. Northern Ireland’s roads were not included in the study. The RAC Foundation said its research was based on analysis of data published by communications regulator Ofcom.

 
Areas with least coverage:
Highlands – 452 miles
Powys – 437 miles
Argyll and Bute – 293 miles
Cumbria – 252 miles
Devon – 243 miles
Dumfries and Galloway – 237 miles
North Yorkshire – 231 miles
Scottish Borders – 226 miles
Gwynedd – 172 miles
Ceredigion – 156 miles

RAC Foundation director Steve Gooding said: “There are thousands of miles of road along which you would not want to break down. Even where there is partial network coverage it might not be from your network provider.”
 
However, mobile phone operators said billions of pounds a year were being invested in boosting phone coverage in rural areas.
 
A Vodafone spokesperson said it was investing “around £1bn per year to deliver a strong signal for customers”. “In addition to our largest ever investment programme, we require the support of consenting landlords, updated planning laws, and for the fixed fibre network – needed to link masts – to be extended to rural areas,” a spokesman said.
 
A spokeswoman for EE said mobile phone coverage in the UK “has never been better than it is now. Ofcom’s checker shows EE already has the most coverage, and all operators have agreed to invest £5bn to increase coverage further.”
 
Under an industry agreement, customers can make 999 calls wherever there is network available – even if it is not via their own provider.
 
 

EE gets rival Three’s multimillion-pound Muppet ad banned

The advertising watchdog has banned mobile network Three’s Muppet-themed ad campaign, following a complaint from rival EE.
 
The advertising watchdog has banned mobile network Three’s Muppet-themed ad campaign, following a complaint from rival EE.
 
EE, the UK’s largest mobile phone company, lodged a complaint with the Advertising Standards Authority about the campaign and one strapline where Three UK claims to be the “undisputed” market leader.
 
The ad features Jackson, a Muppet-like creation of Jim Henson’s Creature Shop, in boxing gloves being victoriously hoisted in a Rocky-style moment of triumph. It ran with the strapline: “The undisputed. UK’s most reliable network. Again.”
 
EE, which took to social media posting a tweet with the dictionary definition of the word “undisputed”, challenged whether the ad was misleading and if Three UK could prove the claim. 

A member of the public also lodged a complaint with the ASA.

 
Three UK said the ad’s claims were based on a YouGov report in which it had beaten rivals in five consecutive quarters in a comparison about network reliability. The company also said that there was no standard, objective industry test for network reliability, so the best way to determine it was to ask customers.
 
The ASA said the ad did not make it clear that the claim “undisputed” was in fact based on subjective consumer views, and that those who saw the ad would think it was based on “robust objective measures”.
 
“Because we understood that there were no commonly agreed objective measures of network reliability against which 3 UK had undisputedly scored higher than their competitors, we concluded that the claim ‘The undisputed’ as used in the context of the ad was likely to mislead,” said the ASA. The ad must not appear again in its current form. We also told them not to state or imply that Three was the UK’s most reliable network unless they made clear that the claim was based solely on a survey of consumer opinions.”
 
A spokesman for Three UK defended the company’s track record.
 
“We have been recognised by consumers, based on their direct feedback to YouGov, as the UK’s most reliable network for an incredible seven quarters in a row. Technical tests conducted by Rootmetrics have also recently named us as the most reliable network, so we are naturally surprised and disappointed by the ASA’s decision. We are analysing the ruling before deciding our next step.”
 
And EE couldn’t help but crow on social media about its knockout of rival 3 UK over the claim.

9.7 MILLION BRITS PREFER TO KEEP IN TOUCH USING CONNECTED DEVICES

Thanks to the advent of social media, it’s easier than ever to keep in touch with loved ones all over the world. But are some of us foregoing personal contact for digital conversations?
New statistics released today by Vodafone have found that 9.7m Brits prefer digital contact to meeting their friends in person, despite almost one in three (30 per cent) believing that connected devices make people less sociable.
As part of its new Digital Behaviours study, Vodafone looked in-depth at the digital habits of 12 connected families from around the UK, and surveyed more than 2,100 other British residents on their own tech tendencies.
30 per cent of Brits believe they are less sociable when using digital products, with that percentage rising to 38 per cent of those aged 65 and over.
One in five British parents (19 per cent) are concerned that their families are using digital products too much, with 15 per cent even worried that other parents judge them for allowing their kids so much screen time.
British parents in 22m homes now have the chance to take control with Vodafone’s new broadband service. The service works seamlessly with a companion app, the first app of its kind for home broadband, that gives users the ability to schedule when Wi-Fi is available and when it’s not on certain devices. Users can even set timers for the service to switch itself off when it’s time for bed.
“Connected devices have become a huge part of everyday life for all of us,” said Cindy Rose, Consumer Director at Vodafone UK. “But it’s important that we all strike a balance between our time online and that spent offline. It’s why we give our broadband customers the ability to easily control their internet use through an app. That way, you get the best of both worlds – a great connection when you’re online, but also the chance to switch off.”
Vodafone has also published the latest edition of its Digital Parenting magazine – full of tips on how to help kids stay connected safely and manage their screen time constructively. The latest issue can be viewed here: http://vodafonedigitalparenting.co.uk/
The percentage of UK adults using smartphones has shot up from 39 per cent to 66 per cent in the past three years, with the number of phone users with 4G high-speed mobile internet growing almost tenfold from 2.7m to 23.6m over the course of just 12 months between January and December 2014.
With the ease of being able to access information at their fingertips, two thirds of Brits (67 per cent) believe that using connected devices make them less active – with one in five (17 per cent) even saying they may be too dependent on the internet at home.
Despite this, a huge 87 per cent believe that widespread connected devices is the way things are, and won’t change.

Google to fight Russian anti-trust ruling over Android apps

peoples phone android in box

Google is challenging a ruling that it broke Russian competition laws by pre-installing some Android apps on phones.
 
Russia’s federal anti-monopoly service said that Google abused its dominant position by requiring mobile firms to install the apps.
 
Apps for YouTube and Google’s photography and maps services were at the centre of the row. Google said no operator was compelled to install its apps and there was plenty of competition for its services.
When it reached its decision in September, the anti-monopoly watchdog gave Google until 18 November to change its contracts with phone firms so its apps were not favoured. The firm could face penalties of up to 15% of its 2014 revenue in Russia if it did not change its practices.
 
Google has not complied with this decision and has now published comments on its official Russian blog explaining why. “We intend to challenge the decision in court and explain why we believe it to be unfounded,” said Google
 
It laid out five reasons why it believed there was little evidence that its own Android apps were getting favourable treatment. It said no manufacturer was required to install its apps and some had decided to omit Google’s software from devices and instead add their own. It added that the ease with which apps can be installed on Android phones and the huge number of rival programs meant there was plenty of competition in the Russian market.
 
The Russian anti-monopoly service has yet to respond to Google’s announcement.
 
However, Russian search rival Yandex, which prompted anti-trust authorities in the country to investigate Google, said it would welcome an “open trial” on the issue. “Yandex is confident in every point of its position,” it said.
