No such estimate has been made. Mobile coverage information is provided by mobile network operators to Ofcom that uses this information to provide an assessment of existing coverage. This is collated and updated annually. Ofcom’s most recent Infrastructure Report was published in December 2014. The report and an interactive map showing coverage of 2G, 3G and 4G services can be found at
