Help Show How Poor Mobile Phone Reception is in Ilminster Update

Last month the Forum put out an appeal to you all to download and run the Rootmetrics mobile signal reporting app.

We got to the end of June with an increased number of data samples reported, but, there are still a number of holes. If you are able to go to the locations where there are no hexagonss and run the coverage test, or file a no signal report your efforts will be greatly appreciated. I’m planning on trying to fill the gaps for Three this coming weekend.

The forum are now producing a report to pass on to Ofcom and the mobile operators to see if there is anything that can be done in and around Ilminster to improve mobile reception; we need your help to do this!

We’ll wait until the last minute before we take the Rootmetrics data into our report.

If you’d like to help and you own and Android or iOS device, we need you to download the RootMetrics Coverage Checker app and run tests wherever you can around town. You need to be disconnected from WiFi when you run these tests, please note that each test can use between 5-10mb of your data allowance.

Where there is no signal you can swipe up from the bottom and report the issue you experience...

If you have any questions about this task please contact Andrew Lawson on Ilminster Facebook. We will hopefully let you know if we hear anything back. Many thanks.

Upcoming Events

Event: Sometimes Always Never (12)
Location: Horton Village Hall

The Horton Film Club is offering a local, affordable and a quality cinema experience for all in our community. Films are shown in Horton Village Hall with doors opening for members at 7:00pm and non members being welcome from 7:15pm. Members pay £25 for 11 films and non members pay £5 per film. It would take a strong appetite for English eccentricity – Liverpudlian eccentricity, to be precise – to fully embrace the charms of Sometimes Always Never, a melancholic comedy-drama about father-son reconciliation. Scripted by Frank Cottrell Boyce, the dialogue bristles with wry exchanges and throwaway wit; but there’s often the feel of a mismatch between the low-key such-is-life observations and Carl Hunter’s sometimes forcedly off-beat direction. Hunter – making his feature debut after shorts and TV work – shows visual invention to spare, but this sometimes overloads a slight story that serves as a somewhat familiar vehicle for Bill Nighy.
