Broadband and Mobile Coverage

July 2017 - Manafon CC are pursuing 4 avenues of potential for securing mobile coverage, will update as developments arise

May 2017 - BT Openreach advise an issue with a wayleave has delayed roll out to June

May 2017 - We are waiting for a response from EE to arrange a meeting to see if we can have some remote equipment in public places to facilitate a mobile signal in the valley.

Feb 2017 Mobile Project - Despite a decision to place this on hold, we have now received further correspondence from the Home Office and EE, see below to those links for more detail. Manafon CC will now share this information with other local community councils with the expectation that if we all continue to lobby fiercely we will get a resolution sooner rather than later and we urge all sister councils to join us in this fight for a reasonable communication platform in the valley.
