The mobile phone network O2, has announced it will be starting work to bring its 4G service to Cookstown as well as improving its 2G and 3G networks.

Work is scheduled to take place between Monday 27th July and Saturday 1st August.

Subject to successful implementation and testing, customers will see the new and improved service shortly afterwards.

In a statement, o2 said: “During the work, there may be times when a customer’s signal experiences intermittent service. We recommend that customers download the TUGo app which enables them to make and receive calls on any wifi-connected device using their mobile number. More information can be found here.”

Derek McManus, Chief Operating Officer, Telefónica UK said: “O2 customers in Cookstown 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.
