What? 12 months after launching at Royal Welsh Show 2016, Wales’ own mobile network RWG Mobile will be unveiling its latest developments, and plans to tackle the signal vacuum that exists in parts of Wales and impacts heavily on rural and farming communities.
Why? RWG Mobile is the first full-scale mobile telecommunications network designed specifically for people who live and work in Wales. RWG Mobile delivers mobile communication via its own SIM card that offers pan-Wales and UK coverage as well as international roaming capability and 4G. To complement the service the company has developed and launched an app that can be downloaded to both Apple and Android smartphones and tablets, allowing customers to use multiple numbers to make and receive calls over the internet using Wi-Fi connection.
RWG Mobile is exploring unique partnerships with Ofcom Wales and farming associations to open up opportunities with the farming community to tackle not-spots across Wales.
Interviews will be available with founder and director Andrew Davies (in English) and with marketing director Owen Roberts (bilingual).
Where? S4C building; Royal Welsh Showground; Builth Wells; Powys.
When? 8:30am; Tuesday 25 July 2017.
