Mobile phone company O2 says it will be launching its 4G service in Earls Barton.

Today, the mobile phone network has announced it has started work to bring its 4G service to Earls Barton as well as improving its 2G and 3G network.

Work is scheduled to start the week commencing Monday October 17. 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 O2’s parent company Telefónica UK, said: “O2 customers in Earls Barton 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.”
