Mobile Phone Coverage in South Devon

Mobile phone coverage can be patchy in South Devon. In fact, you may not have any signal at all. The rolling hills, ancient sunken lanes and high hedges may be pretty but it comes at a cost. Due to the undulating nature of the South Devon coast and countryside, you may find that your mobile phone dips in and out of signal. You could lose network coverage entirely if you’re in one of the vales surrounded by hills, relaxing on the beach in a sandy cove or hiking on the moor. 

If you’re looking to completely switch off and escape the rat race for a few days, that’s fine. But if, on the other hand, you’re trying to keep your hand in at work, stay in touch with family or friends, having a reliable mobile network is essential and high on your wishlist. 

But it’s not all doom and gloom 

In reality, mobile coverage isn’t an issue for those of us who live and work in South Devon, yes the signal may weaken from time to time when we’re out and about but it’s not a problem. If the property you are staying at doesn’t have good network coverage you can usually connect to WiFi and make phone calls, send texts and WhatApp which is very straightforward.

We recommend checking the mobile strength for the location of your holiday home. You will just need a postcode which we can provide you with so please get in touch with one of our team.
