Report: Almost 4,600 miles of UK roads have no 2G coverage

A report from the RAC Foundation -- a UK transport policy and research organisation -- said almost 4,600 miles of roads in the UK have no 2G mobile phone coverage from any network provider, meaning drivers couldn't call for help in the case of a breakdown, accident or emergency. The report, based on Ofcom data, also found that an additional 111,679 miles of road (45 per cent) only have partial 3G coverage. When it comes to 4G signals more than half (56 per cent) of the road network has no coverage and more than a quarter (27 per cent) has only partial coverage. Report
