Vodafone UK are calling all community hubs, rural pubs and village halls to apply to their 3G mobile Community Indoor Sure Signal (CISS) programme. This scheme will enable up to 100 rural community hubs, from pubs to village halls and community run shops, to receive reliable, indoor 3G mobile coverage and internet access. Following a successful pilot at The Bear and Ragged Staff pub in Bransford near Worcester, Vodafone is calling for applications from rural community centres, such as independent or community run pubs and shops, village halls, scout huts, doctor’s surgeries or visitor centres, that do not have reliable mobile coverage, to apply for the programme. Coverage will bring both 3G voice and data ensuring both employees and visitors at the community hubs will be able to make both calls and use data on their Vodafone mobile phones or tablets.
