4G ar­rival is in­ter­net boost

Macclesfield Express - - BEFORE THE BENCH -

MORE ru­ral ar­eas will get bet­ter ac­cess to mo­bile wifi thanks to boosted sig­nals.

Mo­bile net­work O2 has launched 4G in North Rode. The fourth gen­er­a­tion mo­bile phone tech­nol­ogy en­ables in­ter­net ac­cess faster than 3G.

Derek McManus, chief op­er­at­ing of­fi­cer at Tele­fónica UK which owns O2, said: “I’m de­lighted that O2 cus­tomers in North Rode will soon be able to ex­pe­ri­ence faster mo­bile in­ter­net, mak­ing every­thing eas­ier when us­ing their phone or tablet.

“They’ll be able to stream high def­i­ni­tion TV, shop on the go and use video call­ing. For our busi­ness cus­tomers, us­ing 4G means they can be more ef­fec­tive and flex­i­ble by work­ing re­motely, ac­cess­ing cloud ser­vices and col­lab­o­rat­ing us­ing apps.”

In ad­di­tion to the launch of 4G, O2 is up­grad­ing its 2G and 3G net­work in the area as part of a net­work mod­erni­sa­tion pro­gramme.

Works are due to start on 17 July and will be com­pleted by 20 July.

Cus­tomers may ex­pe­ri­ence in­ter­mit­tent ser­vice dur­ing the work.
