The Get Us Connected campaign launched a petition yesterday (Thursday 25 September 2014) to lobby the Government and network companies to improve the signal in the region.

At Shropshire Council’s full council meeting at the Shirehall, Leader Keith Barrow said:

“This is a real issue.  We have a wonderful local paper, the Shropshire Star, and wonderful local people, and the message is we want proper mobile phone coverage.

“This is about all of Shropshire, we are together across the county, and together we can do more.”

He put forwarded a motion that the council work with the Shropshire Star on the petition and that it be delivered to local MPs and the Secretary for State for Culture, Media, and Sport, Sajid Javid.

It was passed unanimously.
