UK regulator Ofcom to investigate Vodafone, BT on data coverage

Oct 2 (Reuters) - Britain’s telecoms regulator Ofcom said it would separately investigate if Vodafone Plc and the country’s biggest mobile operator EE had provided accurate information in response to requests for 3G and 4G mobile coverage predictions.

Ofcom said here it found errors in the coverage data provided by Vodafone, which meant that its 4G coverage was underestimated, particularly in rural areas.

Ofcom also found here that coverage data handed in by EE, owned by BT Group, meant that its 3G coverage was over-predicted, particularly in rural areas.
