Tory MSP seeks better mobile coverage for Aberdeenshire

CONSERVATIVE MSP Nannette Milne is seeking a timetable for better mobile network coverage for the north-east of Scotland.

Ms Milne, who has written to Communications Minister Ed Vaizey on the matter, said that recent investment announcements by the UK Government were to be welcomed.

“It is welcome news that the UK Conservative Government is investing £150 million to help provide greater mobile network coverage across rural Scotland,” she said. “This latest investment will assist the 5-10% of people who live in an area with poor or non-existent reception. I have written to Ed Vaizey to ask for a timetable for when Aberdeenshire is likely to see investment in our network.”
