Miss McIntosh said, “Everyone pays the same for their phone package but phone reception is very variable and many people are not getting a good deal.”

“The Government and phone companies need to take notice of this fact and ensure that no one is missed out from the mobile network.”

“I would invite everyone to download the app and make use of it so the Countryside Alliance can have the best possible information to take to the Government and phone companies.”
