One in three get no signal or a rubbish reception at home

For me it’s not too surprising. While networks concentrate on pushing out 4G networks, they do so from existing masts, so the actual coverage doesn’t really change a great deal. Sure, you could argue that the different frequencies used by some networks for their 4G signals has improved …
