Vodafone and EE mobile coverage claims probed by the UK telecoms regulator



The accuracy of mobile coverage claims by Vodafone and EE are to be investigated by the UK telecoms regulator.

 
Ofcom said EE had overstated its 3G coverage in rural areas, while Vodafone had understated its 4G coverage.


EE - which is owned by BT - apologised for any confusion it had caused, and said it had updated its coverage maps.


Vodafone said it "may have been inadvertently under-reporting the extent of our 4G network coverage".


Companies have a legal obligation to provide accurate coverage data to Ofcom.
The data is used by the firms themselves to give coverage information to customers and to potential customers.
