Mobile Phone Coverage

I was interested this week to hear about an initiative to create a mobile coverage map.  The idea is to find the strength of mobile phone signals in a particular place and to plot this on a map.  This would provide data to press phone companies for better coverage, especially in rural areas.  I know that there are parts of my constituency which have poor or no coverage and this is an inconvenience to those who live and work in rural areas. A free app called Rootmetrics can be downloaded onto a smartphone or tablet and the results of a signal strength test will be recorded automatically. I hope constituents will take part.
