Invitation to participate in DCMS survey about rural network coverage (mobile)
“ Would you like to contribute to government policy? We, the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS), are currently researching the impact of mobile coverage in rural areas. This is part of our Shared Rural Network programme which aims to increase mobile network coverage across the UK to 95%. Now, we want to find out how this programme can help you in your daily life.
We particularly want to hear from you if you live or work in rural UK!
You can participate via this link: https://dcms.eu.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_7QWTy9OUU4PNnmK
The survey should take around 10 minutes to complete.
Or email Laura.Hensel@dcms.gov.uk to request to complete the survey over the telephone.
