It looks like we've actioned a number of upgrades to your site (81930) recently, with more scheduled at the beginning of next month @brentrobbo. This will show on our network status checker and update once it's completed  If you're still having issues after this time, please update us on your thread here and we'll take a closer look into this for you.

It looks like your coverage is patchy for 2G, 3G and 4G - the planned changes may be able to improve this. In the meantime, either our Wi-Fi Calling feature or Sure Signal device would be beneficial, as both help with making and receiving calls in areas where you may usually struggle to get reception.

Thank you for replying.

The problem is not at home where I can take advantage of Wi-Fi calling but in the neighbourhood.

I'm puzzled by the upgrades that you refer to as the network coverage map shows absolutely no difference between current and planned coverage.

@brentrobbo It's likely the upgrades may not be 4G related in that case, we're unable to determine the exact nature of each upgrade. Rest assured, you should notice a difference following the work though!

Bearing in mind that complaints have been made about coverage in this area for a number of years (without any significant improvement) your response is disappointingly vague.
