First village gets coverage from £150 million UK government Mobile Infrastructure Project

The North Yorkshire village of Weaverthorpe has been the first to benefit from the UK government’s £150 million Mobile Infrastructure Project. In the next couple of years, hundreds of other communities are expected to benefit from the national scheme.

Overall, an estimated £340 million in economic benefits is expected to be delivered by extending coverage to and eliminating so-called ‘not-spots’.

Site infrastructure is being installed by Arqiva, while connectivity and ongoing operating costs will be arranged by EE, Telefonica, Three and Vodafone.

Ed Vaizey MP, Minister for Culture, Communications and Creative Industries, said “We are now delivering mobile coverage to small communities thanks to the government’s investment in our digital infrastructure. For the first time, these small, rural communities will enjoy the benefits of mobile phones that the rest of us take for granted.”
