Diana and Adrian Sampson run a commercial letting business from a rural area in north Suffolk and are often frustrated by a poor mobile signal.
Little Beck Properties, based at Beck Green, Ilketshall St Andrew, near Beccles, run three sites at Beccles, Bungay and Halesworth.
Mrs Sampson said using a mobile phone is essential but coverage is variable.
“It certainly makes things extremely difficult as with some mobile companies coverage is patchy while others it is non-existent in many areas. Even in the main yard here we often see people walking from one end to the other in the hope of getting a mobile signal,” she said.
Mrs Sampson said encouraging businesses in rural areas is a high government priority but if it is to be successful mobile phone coverage has to be improved.
