(Reuters) - Britain's telecoms regulator Ofcom said it would separately investigate if Vodafone Plc <VOD.L> and the country's biggest mobile operator EE had provided accurate information in response to requests for 3G and 4G mobile coverage predictions.

Ofcom said https://www.ofcom.org.uk/about-ofcom/latest/bulletins/competition-bulletins/open-cases/cw_01231 it found errors in the coverage data provided by Vodafone, which meant that its 4G coverage was underestimated, particularly in rural areas.

Ofcom also found https://www.ofcom.org.uk/about-ofcom/latest/bulletins/competition-bulletins/open-cases/cw_01232 that coverage data handed in by EE, owned by BT Group <BT.L>, meant that its 3G coverage was over-predicted, particularly in rural areas.
