Could 4G and Mobile Repeaters Finally Fix Coverage Issues?

05 Jul 2014
Grass Sky Clouds and Couple Uncropped

The past year has seen mobile phone operators introducing their 4G networks throughout the UK at a great pace, with EE currently leading the charge. The mobile giants stated that they wanted to have achieved 98% 4G coverage by the end of 2014, and they look set to achieve that. At present, 73% of the UK can access a 4G signal. However, there is still lots of work to be done, and there are still locations with extremely poor coverage.

Improving 4G coverage in remote areas.

With this being said, there are still concerns regarding the coverage accessible in the Scottish highlands and isles, where at present, mobile customers across the board face frequent signal drop outs and unreliable mobile internet. This issue was even raised in the House of Commons recently, such is the scale of the problem.

Mobile users in remote areas, such as the highlands, would almost certainly benefit from mobile repeating technology. On the whole, large mobile providers are unwilling to spend money improving signal in sparsely populated, secluded areas, as it proves extremely costly, thus leaving the consumer to solve any signal issues they have on their own.

Urban coverage can be surprisingly bad

However, on the other hand, many areas with poor signal are in urban, rather than rural areas. This comes as a result of the way towns and cities are constructed. Due to the materials used throughout buildings, and their size, they can create areas where it is very hard to secure good coverage. Essentially, this is a downfall in the 3G protocol – it is not very effective at passing through certain materials, especially metals, and loses quality over long distances.

For anyone struggling with poor signal: signing up to a 4G network may be the solution. If not on its own, then certainly in together with a high quality mobile repeater, and here is why:

  • 4G is a superior protocol to 3G and 2G.
  • The 4G signal is capable of travelling much further than a 3G signal.
  • In terms of mobile network bandwidth, an 800MHz signal is great at travelling long distances, whilst the higher 2.6GHz band cannot travel as far, but offers blistering speeds.
  • 4G providers within the UK have coverage at both ends of this spectrum. In theory, this should grant great coverage in the countryside, whilst securing high data speeds in cities.
