Selsey couple report Vodafone blackspot in town


A COUPLE from Selsey say there are problems with Vodafone mobile reception in the town.

Ellen and Jeffrey Langley returned from holiday in Portugal on October 6, with Mrs Langley saying ever since the pair had been unable to get a signal.

“The signal has been terrible, each time it just keeps going down,” she said.

“My husband’s on Vodafone and he’s having the same problem.”


Vodafone responded to the Observer at 2.30pm this afternoon (October 14).

A spokeswoman said: “We’re sorry some of our customers in Selsey have experienced signal issues this week. A local mast is undergoing some planned work but we should have the site up and running as normal early this evening.”
