The House Service is currently developing proposals with suppliers for making improvements to the mobile phone signal across the whole estate. This partly relies on the support of the mobile networks, and so far discussions have been held with one of the four mobile networks and Airwave.

Surveys of the estate have already been completed and a network supplier has started to design a system to improve the cover. Work will start shortly.
