Storrington and Sullington Parish Council are continuing to tackle mobile phone signal in the area.

The parish council confirmed Ofcom had completed testing of mobile signal strength in Storrington, Sullington and Washington last week and the results are expected to come in towards the end of the year.

Due to the ‘excellent response’ of residents’ reporting the mobile signal problem to the council, this enabled them to encourage mobile phone providers, communications regulator. Ofcom and the government to improve the signal in the area.

The council are urging more people to report the issue, by filling out an online form via their website, which is available until the end of October.

The council is particularly interested in evidence of problems caused to local businesses.

Please visit http://www.storrington-pc.gov.uk/ to report an issue.

Ofcom has also launched a new mobile research phone app which enables the reporting of bad signal to go directly to them at http://consumers.ofcom.org.uk/phone/mobile-phones/coverage/Ofcom- mobile-research-.
