You’re insane - or, at least, ignorant:
- EE are losing money on the Emergency Services Network tender: there is no “subsidy”.
- There was a competition, and other networks had the opportunity to bid for it.
- mandating full coverage across the entire geographical UK would exponentially increase everyone’s mobile bills.
Your comment is an example of what is wrong with the Internet: any moron with an opinion, despite how ignorant, can assert something and if it arouses people’s emotions, it will be propagated and upvoted.
Full disclosure: I used to work for EE. One of the reasons I left is because of my contempt for the puddle-deep level of understanding, and sense of entitlement, of the average customer, and the implications that has for the demands made on telecoms companies by government/Ofcom.
