North Coast 500 Mobile Coverage Map

The new NC500 map outlines the level of 4G coverage offered by the UK’s mobile network operators (EE, O2, Three and Vodafone) throughout the 516 miles of road. After surveying the length of the route which circles northern Scotland with its Coverage Mapping solution, FarrPoint identified more than 40 miles of road without mobile coverage from any provider.

How did we measure the coverage?

Our mobile coverage mapper is an autonomous network monitoring tool that provides real-life performance statistics of all available mobile networks. The Mapper comprises a small internal unit with magnetic antennas which are placed on the roof of a vehicle. The unit can be fitted into any vehicle and will measure the signal strength of all mobile networks simultaneously as it drives the route of interest, in this particular case the NC500 route. As the Mobile Coverage Mapper travels across a geographic location, it sends the performance data back to our processing and mapping servers enabling a true picture of mobile network performance.

Mobile Mapping Case Studies

Disclaimer: the data was collected in June 2020 - July 2022. Mobile masts built since then could have improved the coverage in certain areas.

The last update to the map was completed on 1 Aug 2022 and previous version of the map should be superceded by this latest version.
