According to a recent survey by the BBC, Newtyle is a veritable void of connectivity. Using Android devices to record mobile signal strength data was collected over a three week period. The resulting coverage map can be seen on the BBC site –http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-14582499. If you put in a Newtyle postcode (PH12 8TU will do) you can see that the village is just about the only black spot on the map. Do bear in mind that less than 50,000 people from across the UK took part in the survey and not many of them came from Newtyle.
