Mobile signal improvements
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.”
