Borders MP Michael Moore has held talks with Ofcom to discuss problems with mobile phone coverage.
The Secretary of State for Scotland raised concerns about problems Vodafone customers in Hawick have had in recent weeks, with the service having failed three times.
Mr Moore said: “The problem of poor mobile phone coverage in the Borders has been highlighted in the past couple of weeks as Vodafone customers in Hawick have been left with next to no service – a deeply frustrating situation for individuals and businesses."
“In this digital age, mobile phones are an essential part of life and it is extremely unfair that people in rural areas are not being provided with a decent service or sometimes any service at all."
