Default Rural residents hang up on mobile banking

This report comes from BBC UK Business News:

Rural residents hang up on mobile banking, regulator finds - BBC News
Quote:
Consumers in rural areas of the UK are far less likely to use their smartphones for banking than their urban counterparts, a survey says.

The findings, from the UK's financial regulator, are set to reignite the debate over bank branch closures - particularly in rural locations.
Some of them probably live round here - getting a signal is unreliable to say the least!

Default Re: Rural residents hang up on mobile banking

I have never used my smartphone for banking and never will. I am rural so I do use my computer occasionally. But, unless I ring my bank which would be highly unlikely, I won't even speak to them on the phone. Assuming they do manage to get through my phone blocks once I realise that it is, ostensibly, my bank I put the phone down. I would then call into the bank and talk to them there.

I do online banking on my desktop but would never ever consider doing so on a phone! It's tricky enough getting through all the security stuff on a big screen let alone on a tiny touch screen!

Samenhere. Apart from what you say, we'd never get a signal round here to do anything much online. Sometimes I ring the bank if I have a query which I can't resolve online. We don't use our nearest bank branch, it's about 60 miles away....!
