Shropshire Newsroom has here announced the launch of a new campaign to improve mobile phone reception across the county. The Get Us Connected campaign is a joint venture between Shropshire Council and the Shropshire Star. It is asking people to sign a petition in order to lobby the Government and network companies to improve the signal in the region. The petition will be delivered to local MPs and the Secretary for State for Culture, Media, and Sport.
Anyone who wishes to sign the petition can do so here. The petition reads:
Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport Sajid Javid, the UK phone companies and Ofcom.
We call on the Government and Ofcom to apply pressure on the phone companies to provide a better service. We demand action from the phone companies to act now to improve coverage in Shropshire.
