Rural mobile phone signals in East Lancashire to be mapped using phone app
11:42am Wednesday 21st August 2013 in News
RURAL people in East Lancashire have been urged to help map rural mobile phone signals by downloading a smart phone application.
Nearly 100,000 samples of mobile phone reception are being collected every day by the Countryside Alliance since it released the RootMetrics ‘app’ in June. The free app tests the strength of a user’s signal and records result.
The Countryside Alliance hopes the data will go towards ensuring people living in the countryside are not forgotten by mobile phone companies.
