Mobile signal arrives in Weaverthorpe
Welcome to the mobile phone revolution for residents and businesses of Weaverthorpe in North Yorkshire. As part of the £150m investment by the Government in mobile masts to improve voice and data coverage the village now has a mobile mast to provide coverage in the area and based on the comments from the major mobile operators we presume all four networks are available.
"“The UK has one of the strongest and most competitive communications markets in the world, and this initiative will make that global position even stronger. This boost to connectivity will bring added social and economic benefits to Weaverthorpe and communities across the country, and we’re pleased to be supporting this unique and strategic partnership between government and the telecoms sector."Olaf Swantee, EE CEO
Arqiva won the contract to provide the mast infrastructure back in May 2013, with the Government money providing the capital funding, and the operators covering their own costs for the next 20 years.
