Norfolk County Council has had talks with all four major operators who have said newly available frequencies should help them boost signals.

Nine villages which aren't covered by any of the operators have also been identified as potential locations for government funded masts.

"We will continue to talk with the government and providers to promote Norfolk's cause for good mobile provision. We will emphasise how Norfolk leads in science, agriculture and tourism and therefore has an ever growing need for good mobile communications. Additionally we will continue to emphasise how poor signals across our rural areas and along our coastline adversely and dangerously affect communications in times of emergencies."

– Dr Marie Strong, Norfolk County Council
