Dozens of Dutch towns still have poor cell reception
Dozens of Dutch towns still have poor mobile phone reception, according to NOS based on its own study with the local broadcasters. Drenthe and Noord-Brabant in particular struggle with poor reception.
23 thousand people participated in the study. They were asked to rate their mobile network. In 19 towns and one Lelystad neighborhood, the networks scored below 3 out of 10. Six of the 19 towns are in Drenthe. There were also many complaints in Noord-Brabant
For residents of these towns and neighborhood, it means often not being able to make or receive a call from home, send text messages and sometimes not even being able to reach emergency number 112, according to NOS. Many people indicated that they have to go to a certain spot in their area to make a call.
