Mobile phone network O2 has started work this week to bring its 4G service to Corby.

As well as bringing high speed mobile internet to its customers in the area, work will also be carried out to improve its 2G and 3G network.

Work is scheduled to be completed on Wednesday, August 12.

Subject to successful implementation and testing, customers will see the new and improved service shortly afterwards.

During the work, the O2 signal may be unavailable at times.

O2 is recommending that customers download the TUGo app which enables them to make and receive calls on any wifi-connected device using their mobile number.

Chief operating officer for Telefónica UK Derek McManus said: “O2 customers in Corby 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 is spending £600m in 2015 on its network and by the end of 2017 will have invested over £3bn in 4G and the modernisation of its 2G and 3G networks across the UK.
