O2 and Voda­fone re­veal 4G for Oban

The Oban Times - - News -

MO­BILE phone net­works O2 and Voda­fone have said they are bring­ing a 4G ser­vice to Oban.

The com­pa­nies said they are aim­ing to bring high-speed mo­bile in­ter­net to cus­tomers in more ru­ral ar­eas and will start work next week to bring a 4G ser­vice to Oban, as well as im­prov­ing their 2G and 3G net­work.

The O2 work is sched­uled to start on Mon­day July 24. The firm said that, 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 cus­tomers ex­pe­ri­ence in­ter­mit­tent ser­vice. That was the case last week for Voda­fone users, who had their ser­vice dis­rupted. The news brought com­ment on

Face­book page.

He­len Whitelaw posted: ‘You would think they could sched­ule things like this for out­with the work­ing day...’

Cather­ine Carnie com­plained: ‘No ser­vice on phone to­day [ Wed­nes­day July 12].’

Kyle Murchi­son wrote: ‘Just a shame now that it’s back on Oban is still stuck in the stone age with 2g ser­vice!’

Lin­sey John­stone said: ‘ They are up­grad­ing the mast to 4G for Voda­fone and O2.’

David Liv­ing­stone re­torted: ‘They’ve been say­ing that for 5 years +.’

Cus­tomers can down­load the O2 TU Go app which en­ables them to make and re­ceive calls on any wifi- con­nected de­vice us­ing their mo­bile num­ber.
