MPs discussed mobile 'Notspots' as part of a House of Commons debate
Yesterday saw MPs discuss mobile 'Notspots' and broadband rollout across the UK as part of a House of Commons debate.
The debate, which took three hours looked at the issues surrounding broadband fibre vs cable and mobile 3G vs 4G, the main focus point however was on mobile Notspots and how best to deal with them.
This debate has been bought forward by the Conservative MP for Boston and Skegness, Matt Warman (pictured), who was previously a former Daily Telegraph technology correspondent.
Warman started the discussion by stating, "That this House notes variations in the effectiveness of roll-out of fixed and mobile superfast broadband in different parts of the UK; and calls on the Government to host a 'not-spot' summit to consider ways to tackle this issue."
This is not the first time that MPs have commented on the state of superfast broadband rollout and mobile notspots with UK Prime Minister David Cameron vowing that the "new Conservative Government will ensure that a newer, faster mobile infrastructure will be put into place to help with faster fixed broadband and mobile signal coverage."
Mobile network operators have a deal in place with UK Governement, as part of which the four major MNO's will be investing £5bn into the UK's mobile network infrastructure in an attempt to increase broadband speeds nationwide.
This deal takes place alongside the Department for Culture, Media and Sport with an aim of bringing 90 per cent geographical coverage to the UK by 2017.
