Work will start on bringing high speed 4G mobile internet service to Bunbury next week.

O2 have announced they will start implementing the service in the village, as well as improving 2G and 3G networks the week starting Monday December 7.

Subject to success, customers will see the benefits of the new and improved service in the following weeks but customers are warned that during the work, there may be times when signal experiences intermittent service.

However the O2 TUGo app is available to enable them to make and receive calls on any WiFi-connected device using their mobile number.

Derek McManus, Chief Operating Officer of Telefónica UK, said: “O2 customers in Bunbury 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 £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.
