carrier pigeonA ROSS-SHIRE MP has told PM Theresa May that mobile phone coverage is so poor in some parts of the Highlands that people would be better using carrier pigeons.

Challenging the Prime Minister to take mobile infrastructure in the Highlands more seriously, Ian Blackford said coverage needs improved across Scotland.

Speaking in the last Prime Minister’s Questions session of 2016, he said that results just published by the Government’s own infrastructure watchdog put the UK behind even countries like Romania for coverage – making this one of the poorest served areas in the world.

“In the Highlands it is typical to get the message ‘no service’ and it would often be better to use carrier pigeons.”

Will the Prime Minister recognise this is not acceptable and take responsibility for improving the mobile infrastructure. It is time to connect the Highlands to the rest of the world!”
