Mobile-phone network O2 has announced it has started work this week to bring its 4G service to Swarland.

Work, which should also improve the 2G and 3G service, is scheduled to start the week commencing Monday, August 1.

Subject to successful implementation and testing, customers will see the new and improved service in the following weeks.

During the work, there may be times when a customer’s signal experiences intermittent service.

O2 is spending £600 million in 2016 on its network.

During the work, there may be times when a customer’s signal experiences intermittent service. Customers can download the O2 TUGo app which enables them to make and receive calls on any wifi-connected device using their mobile number. See www.o2.co.uk/apps/tu-go
Derek McManus, chief operating officer at Telefónica UK said: “O2 customers in Swarland will soon be able to experience faster mobile internet on their devices such as streaming high-definition TV, shopping on the go, and video calling.

“For our business customers, 4G is all about working more effectively. They can work remotely, access cloud services, collaborate using apps and so on. 4G will make everything easier for them.”

O2 currently offers 4G in more than 7,000 towns and cities across the UK. It is the only network to have made a commitment to regulator Ofcom to provide indoor coverage for 98 per cent of the UK population by the end of 2017.
