Angus MP Mike Weir is backing a move by the Countryside Alliance, who are asking people to become ‘phone detectives this summer.
The organisation is hoping to map out real ‘phone reception rates.
And Mr Weir said: “Everyone pays the same for their phone package but reception is very variable and many people are not getting a good deal. I know from my own experience that there are many areas of Angus, and not just the rural areas, where the ‘phone signal is very bad or non-existent.
“The government and ‘phone companies need to take notice and ensure that no one is missed out from the network.”
