Ofcom Mobile & Broadband Coverage Checker (FREE)

Posted 27th Jan
Before you switch mobile networks, avoid any disappointment by using the free Android / iOS / online app from Ofcom. It has a regularly updated signal-strength heat map of all mobile providers. You can zoom right in to street-level detail, and check 4G Data* / Voice / Indoor / Outdoor coverage.

iOS: itunes.apple.com/gb/…t=8

Android: play.google.com/sto…ker

via browser: checker.ofcom.org.uk/

It also covers broadband availability, although personally I think there's better tools out there for that.

*5G data coverage isn't on there yet, but if you're keen to check where it is so far, there is also this page - 5g.co.uk/cov…ge/ that has links to all the network's own 5G maps

Good link. Thanks for sharing
Reviews seem quite bad for the app so im feeling cautious
Not very accurate in my area so I will give it a miss.
As it updates on a daily basis, it looks like it changes according to meteorological data, so will only ever be as accurate as a weather forecast. Saying that, I've found it generally accurate based on feedback from friends and neighbours (and it helped me choose the best network for the area I live in)
