Prof. Darwazeh in discussion

Are you still struggling at times to get a mobile phone signal 30 years since the first mobile call was made in Britain? 2015 marks 30 years since that first call, however there are still some places in the UK that do not have any coverage and even in towns and cities there are occasionally “not spots” where there is limited coverage. Last month, the government and mobile networks struck a £5bn deal to improve coverage across the UK.
