4G mobile phone network coming to Thrapston
Mobile phone users in Thrapston will soon be on the receiving end of a faster service after O2 announced it will bring 4G to the area.
The mobile phone network will start work on Monday, March 21, and aims to improve the service in rural areas as well as improving its 2G and 3G network.
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 a customer’s signal experiences intermittent service.
Derek McManus, chief operating officer at Telefónica UK, said: “O2 customers in Thrapston 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 2016 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.
