4G arrival is internet boost
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.
