Home is where the signal ISN’T: 40% of Brits living with mobile phone blackspots

Global Wireless Solutions’ mammoth study of wireless connectivity in UK homes combines data from extensive programme of engineering-level testing inside properties with results from nationwide poll

  • 1 in 14 calls fail during in-home testing of EE’s voice network in London - only 1 in 174 test calls failed on highly reliable O2 voice network
  • All of the big 4 UK operators are having difficulty extending their 4G networks into British homes
  • Kitchens most liable to be mobile dead-zones and therefore best for quiet family dinners; Liverpool and Cardiff worst UK cities for blackspots in homes
