What is the NO Bars Mobile Phone Signal Campaign?

Our message: End poor signal strength

The NoBars campaign aims to significantly improve YOUR mobile phone signal.

The UK is one of the most advanced countries in the world. We are a hub for innovation, major finance, business and communications. Astonishingly, there are still areas in our major cities and across the countryside where it's impossible to make a simple mobile phone call or use mobile data.

The NoBars campaign is collecting information on the impact of poor service on people's live, in order to campaign for improvements.

Syed Kamall, MEP for London, will be using his position as London's representative in the European Parliament, to get the telephone companies and legislators to take action.

If you are fed up with the poor mobile phone signal strength you get in our city then bookmark this page and then report back everytime you have a problem with your phone.

We've had enough of promises, we need action!

What is the No Bars mobile phone campaign about?

What is this campaign about?

The NOBARS campaign exposes those areas where mobile phone signal strength (both call and data) need to be improved. It is a campaign built on data provided by YOU, this countries frustrated mobile phone users.

You can find the results on this page and on our Twitter and Facebook campaign feeds. All you have to do is log the location you last had poor signal strength and then tell us what impact that had on you.

Why this campaign matters?

Ask yourself what you were doing last time you tried to use your mobile phone and the signal let you down?

Were you trying to contact a family member, or was it a crucial work call? Were you trying to make a call or were you trying to use the internet on your phone? Perhaps you were trying to text a friend?

When it comes to business, Europe's digital economy is growing seven times faster than the rest of the economy combined. So, how can we hope to compete if you can't get a phone signal?

It's problems like these which made us want to launch the No Bars Mobile Signal Campaign.

The new EU Commission is pushing for significant increases in investment in communications networks but where are the results? If the legislators are struggling to make changes then it's time the mobile phone users of this country, told the network service providers, the mobile regulators and the government what we want.

Whatever you use your mobile phone for, this campaign is all about getting seamless access to your network.

Why is Syed Kamall MEP championing this campaign?

As a Member of the European Parliament for London and the leader of the third largest group at the European Parliament, Syed is used to talking to people at all levels of London life who are let down by their phones. Frustrated by his own experiences and aware of how many people also are being let down, he decided to launch the NoBarsCampaign.

National NoBarsCampaign launch

What a great national launch for the NoBarsCampaign!

The NoBarsCampaign is about creating an atmosphere where poor mobile signals (both phone and data) are unacceptable. There are solutions to these problems but they are not happening fast enough to keep up with our 21st century city and country.

This campaign will send a message to everyone involved, whether it is local officials, mobile phone companies or regulators, that the current situation is unacceptable.
A special thank you to James Berry MP and James Cleverly MP, as well Paul Morris (Vodafone) for joining the panel. Also, thank you to EE for kicking off a dialogue with me at the Party Conference.

Whether you want to call a friend or do business, we must do better when it comes to mobile phone coverage.

Make sure you bookmark this site in your phone and on your computer so you can report problems everytime you experience them.

More details soon.

T-Mobile says 'prove you lost your signal'

Mobile phone customers now have to prove their handset loses signal at least 7 times every single day if they want to claim compensation, according to the Telegraph.

The newspaper has slammed the operators today, saying the terms and conditions are very complex if people want to claim compensation.

They raise the question as to how fair it really is when the companies have already locked people into (in many cases) two-year long contracts.

The situation is said to be worse with with Vodafone who reportedly refuse to offer compensation unless you can prove you have had no signal at all for three consecutive days.
