New mast booster

More 4G cover­age

Strathearn Herald - - FRONT PAGE - Lynn Duke

A new net­work mast in the Strath is bring­ing su­per­fast 4G cover­age to the area.

Lo­cal MP Luke Gra­ham re­cently vis­ited the site of EE’s lat­est in­stal­la­tion on the Lang­side.

The mem­ber of par­lia­ment for Ochil and South Perthshire met with Bren­dan Dick, di­rec­tor of BT Scot­land, of which EE is a part, to dis­cuss the new su­per­fast 4G cover­age. The mast, si­t­u­ated be­tween Com­rie and Braco, is one of sev­eral new in­stal­la­tions and up­grades be­ing car­ried out in the area.

Mr Gra­ham said: “I wel­come this im­prove­ment in our dig­i­tal in­fra­struc­ture. The new mast will pro­vide ad­di­tional cover­age for around 170 house­holds and help im­prove con­nec­tiv­ity across South Perthshire.

“I campa igned to im­prove con­nec­tiv­ity in our con­stituency; I will con­tinue to work with the ma­jor providers to de­liver im­prove­ments across OSP.”

EE will con­tinue to roll out 4G and is plan­ning to con­nect to the most re­mote parts of the coun­try, ben­e­fit­ting lo­cal res­i­dents, busi­nesses and visi­tors . The emer­gency ser­vices will also have 4G cover­age along what to date was a poorly cov­ered road for con­nec­tiv­ity.

Mr Dick said: “Keep­ing peo­ple con­nected is at the heart of ev­ery­thing we do and the power of su­per­fast 4G EE con­nec­tiv­ity can­not be un­der­es­ti­mated.

“From run­ning a busi­ness through to keep­ing in touch with loved ones, 4G changes how peo­ple live and work. We know that we’re mak­ing a real dif­fer­ence to the com­mu­nity in South Perthshire by pro­vid­ing a great net­work ex­pe­ri­ence of­fer­ing crys­tal clear 4G calls and seam­less video stream­ing to lo­cal res­i­dents and busi­nesses through­out the re­gion.”
