MORE than 40 MPs from the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Rural Business have written to Ofcom to highlight the need for monitoring of mobile operators’ commitments to increase rural 4G mobile coverage.

The Country Land and Business Association represents around 30,000 landowners, farmers and rural businesses across England and Wales and runs the #4GForAll campaign.

CLA deputy president Mark Bridgeman said: “Increasing 4G coverage will unlock the potential of rural businesses and the countryside and we cannot let this opportunity slip.”

"Given mobile operators’ previous reluctance to invest in rural areas, annual reporting on progress should be compulsory.

“Ofcom have made great strides in this area in recent times and it would be a shame if they did not take the simple step to give themselves the tools to publicly keep mobile operators to their word on expanding rural 4G coverage and ending the 'digital wilderness'.”
