Cell Coverage a Matter of Life and Death on Yesha Roads


Communications and Homefront Defense Minister Gil'ad Erdan promised, Thursday, to do all he could to eliminate areas in Judea and Samaria (Shomron) where there is no cellular telephone reception.

The promise came during a meeting with Chairman Avi Roeh of the Binyamin Regional Council in the area immediately to the north of Jerusalem. Roeh said, "This is an existential necessity designed to save lives and not a matter of comfort or luxury. Travel on roads with no mobile reception at all in Judea and Samaria, and Binyamin in particular can be dangerous and there is no way to call for help when there is no reception.It's time to solve this problem and properly address the issue."
