MOBILE PHONE USERS in Elgin should already be enjoying faster mobile broadband with the arrival of 4G to the Moray town.
O2 say that they have successfully implemented a 4G service to Moray for the first time – with the new improved network allowing their customers to experience the level of high-speed mobile internet enjoyed in larger cities and towns around the UK.
Derek McManus, Chief Operating Officer for owners Telefonica UK, said: “O2 customers in Elgin 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 2015 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 600 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.
