Improving mobile and broadband coverage

Vodafone recently texted customers that upgrades to masts in our area, which includes some 4G coverage, are complete. Indeed, a check of coverage on the Vodafone website indicates a broad availability of 4G in and around Tattenhall. Yet, residents report varied availability of service, which is also reflected in the coverage map. While 4G service is more widely available, the map reflects that those on Harding Avenue and Keysbrook, for example, are most likely to have service outdoors, while service indoors, even on 2G, is inconsistent. This is in line with the feedback of frustrated residents.

Vodafone is aware of the existing issues and have said improvement in Tattenhall will come with what is called the Beacon roll-out — this upgrades voice and data coverage, in particular with regards to 4G data. The site that covers Tattenhall is currently planned for upgrade on 17 August this year.

However the team are now looking at whether this upgrade can be brought forward to June/early July. There are various dependencies, including upgrading the network capacity at the site to handle the additional data usage that 4G brings with it.
