How we improve our coverage

We work hard to continuously increase and improve our coverage across the UK. We do it in a variety of ways: physically building new masts that provide coverage to geographical and population areas that we didn’t cover before; deploying new masts in areas we already cover, to increase the capacity of our network; adding more spectrum or new technologies such as 4G to existing masts; and reducing downtime on our network by fixing faults and outages more quickly.
