Vodafone Rural Open Sure Signal programme
What's Open Sure Signal?
An Open Sure Signal unit is a larger version of our standard Sure Signal (which creates 3G signal in your home or small office). It’s also ‘open’, so as long as you’re within range and have a 3G device, you’ll automatically connect to it. This means you’ll be able to make clear calls and get online in rural locations where you couldn’t before.
Why Open Sure Signal?
Lots of rural communities sit in areas with geographical challenges, meaning signal from our masts can't reach them.
Some of these communities, along with many national parks and trusts, don't like the idea of a big mast on their land. But Open Sure Signal is much smaller and more discreet - the ideal solution to blackspots in your rural location.

There may be times when it’s hard to get a mobile signal – in an old building with very thick walls or in a rural or remote location.
If you’re on one of our Pay monthly Red bundles, with a compatible phone, you can keep the conversation flowing with Wi-Fi Calling wherever you have Wi-Fi – even where there’s no phone signal. And you don’t even have to download a separate app.
