Ofcom, UK’s telecoms regulator said it will investigate Vodafone and BT over disparities in the 4G network service in some areas.
Ofcom said in a statement that:
“This investigation is examining Vodafone’s compliance with information requests under section 135 and 136 relating to mobile coverage predictions.”
“Specifically, the investigation is examining whether Vodafone provided accurate information in response to Ofcom’s requests for 4G mobile coverage predictions across the UK.”
Ofcom also said it is also investigating EE, owned by BT Group, meaning that its 3G coverage was over-predicted, particularly in rural areas.
