Is your hometown still stuck in the slow lane?
There’s no doubt that 4G is a significant step forward, bringing improved and more reliable connectivity to all its users. But despite a major push by networks and the government, some areas are still missing out on the benefits. We all know you can get 4G inside most major cities, but what about outside of these? Here are 10 places that are still to get connected…
The famous seaside resort and former fishing port is on the most easterly point of England, yet despite being a hub for both nuclear and oil power, no 4G networks reach the town. The nearest connected city is Ipswich, over 30 miles away.
Often populated by lorry drivers and families heading on the car ferry services, the white-cliffed coastal town is yet to receive 4G connectivity, meaning that those social media farewells and frantic photo uploads may struggle slightly when competing with your fellow holidaymakers.
Another popular tourist destination, the seaside town of Weymouth sits midway along the Jurassic Coast, a World Heritage site. Its 52,000 residents enjoy balmy summer temperatures and many major sailing events, but as of now, no superfast internet connections.
