Innovative idea in New York – taxi cab drivers are going to help map out all the dark spots in New York where your mobile may go out of coverage. Ericsson are organising everything and once mapped out, they’ll look to fix the problems. Its not so much that you go out of coverage or range of a relay tower, but that because of the soaring height of the buildings you may not be able to get a mobile signal. What I would like to see is an online production of this ‘map’ once it is finished, updated accordingly as Ericsson fix the transmission issues.
Nice to be able to check before you leave the house whether you’re going to be able to make a phone call when you need to.
