Which UK operator provides the best coverage?
This is a question we hear time and time again from our customers. Not surprising given the confusing terminology used by operators to help claim their network is the best.
The truth is, there is no single ‘best’ operator. Every operator has hot and cold spots in their coverage. Even the ones that claim to have the best coverage are actually referring to population coverage, not geographic. Meaning they are likely to deliver great service in densely populated cities but won’t be so reliable if you live out in the sticks.
As it’s unlikely that any mobile operator will ever offer you 100% coverage, the best way to approach it is to choose the operator that best suits you. Think about areas where mobile coverage is most important to you. Perhaps this is at home or your daily commute and at work. You can then cross reference these locations with a coverage heat map and see which operator is best suited to your lifestyle. We suggest using Open Signal
Sounds simple enough, but how about when it comes to business? Having to cross-reference mobile phone coverage with employee lifestyle can become a tedious task. And what if there isn’t a one network fits all solution? You don’t want the headache of dealing with multiple operators. Luckily, that’s where a managed service provider comes in – we do all the hard work for you.
From checking which operator is best suited to each employee, to providing advice on the best tariffs, data roaming packages and market advances – our dedicated mobility account team have it covered. What’s more, our special network agreements mean that we can supply multiple mobile network contracts within a single business, and because you deal directly with us rather than the operator, you’ll benefit from a single, easy to manage online bill.
At Arden Group our sole aim is to take the complexity of your corporate mobile estate, allowing you to relax knowing that your dedicated account management team is just a quick phone call or e-mail away.
