Mo­bile sig­nal im­prove­ments

Caernarfon Herald - - NEWS -

PLAID Cymru Mem­ber of Par­lia­ment for Dwyfor Meiri­on­nydd, Liz Sav­ille Roberts, has wel­comed fur­ther up­grades to the lo­cal mo­bile net­work in her con­stituency, as two more sites go live, pro­vid­ing mo­bile users with new 4G cov­er­age.

EE has switched on sites along the B4412 near Morfa Ne­fyn on the Llŷn Penin­sula and the B4401, near Lland­der­fel and Rhosyg­waliau in Meiri­on­nydd, ar­eas which in the past have suf­fered dis­pro­por­tion­ately from a lack of cov­er­age.

Liz Sav­ille Roberts MP said: “Mo­bile con­nec­tiv­ity has long been an is­sue for many res­i­dents, busi­nesses and vis­i­tors in Dwyfor Meiri­on­nydd, par­tic­u­larly in more out­ly­ing parts of the con­stituency.

“I’m en­cour­aged that th­ese two new sites, which are now live and op­er­a­tional, will ben­e­fit both those liv­ing along the B4401 near Lland­der­fel and cus­tomers in Morfa Ne­fyn on the Llŷn Penin­sula.

“I have con­sis­tently ar­gued the case for im­proved mo­bile ser­vice in ru­ral ar­eas and hold reg­u­lar meet­ings with net­work providers to push for in­vest­ment in dig­i­tal in­fra­struc­ture in Dwyfor Meiri­on­nydd.

“I hope this in­vest­ment in in­fra­struc­ture will ben­e­fit my con­stituents and help our ru­ral busi­nesses to bet­ter com­pete.”

CEO of BT Con­sumer, Marc Allera, said: “We’re im­prov­ing our 4G mo­bile cov­er­age across Wales ev­ery day by up­grad­ing ex­ist­ing tow­ers and build­ing new ones that will con­nect parts of the coun­try for the very first time.

“We’re mak­ing huge in­vest­ment across Wales in our Merthyr con­tact cen­tre, our re­tail stores and our cov­er­age.

“Cus­tomers will need a de­vice that sup­ports 4G Call­ing to get the best ex­pe­ri­ence of EE’s new mo­bile cov­er­age.”
