Calls For Superfast Signal In Cornwall
7:02am 2nd August 2014
Could Cornwall ditch its mobile not spots for mobile hot spots?
Campaigners want superfast signal rolled out faster in Cornwall.
4G arrived in Saltash this week.
It is five times faster than 3G.
But it is the only place in the Duchy to get it so far.
Sarah Lee is from the Countryside Alliance 'Sick of no Signal' campaign, she said: "I think that is fantastic news for Saltash to be receiving a full 4G signal, this will help improve not only just mobile connectivity but also broadband connectivity for households and businesses in that area, however, that is only one small area of Cornwall and we know there are a lot of people who can't even make a phone call or text on 2G.
"It is imperative for people to have access to mobile coverage these days, we rely on it like we rely on electricity and gas, more and more people are accessing the internet through their tablet or mobile devices, and this isn't going to change, so we need to make sure not only can they connect with their neighbours but within the country and internationally as well."7:02am 2nd August 2014
