Improved mobile connectivity in Na h-Eileanan an Iar will remain a priority. Mr MacNeil has been persistently lobbying the UK Government and mobile operators to ensure that improvements are made to mobile connectivity in the Hebrides. 

Angus MacNeil recently met with representatives from EE and BT at Westminster and was pleased to hear about improvements being made to the network across the islands. 

Commenting Mr MacNeil said:

“Whilst there is still much work to be done, I hope that many people are finding the improvements to the 4G service to be useful in their daily lives, it has certainly been quite a struggle to get to this point but following my meeting with EE and BT, I am optimistic that progress is being made to enhance the 4G service.

“There are now 44 operational 4G masts across the Hebrides and another 8 new masts in the pipeline. This is an issue I will continue to pursue with mobile operators.”
