A spokesman for O2 said the service has been successfully implemented.

Derek McManus, chief operating Officer, Telefónica UK said: “O2 customers in Cogenhoe can now 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. For instance, they can work remotely, access cloud services and collaborate using apps. O2 4G can make everything easier for our customers.”

O2 is spending £600 million in 2016 on its network and by the end of 2017 will have invested over £3billion in 4G and the modernisation of its 2G and 3G networks across the UK.

O2 currently offers 4G in over 6,000 towns and cities across the UK. It is the only network to have made a commitment to Ofcom, the telecommunications regulator, to provide indoor coverage for 98% of the UK population by the end of 2017.
