It’s official – O2 have 4G coverage for 98% of the UK population (indoors).
Ofcom have officially confirmed that O2 delivered against their commitment of providing 98% indoor 4G coverage and 90% geographical landmass mass coverage across the UK.
Brendan O’Reilly, Chief Network Officer says … “In 2013 we secured the highly sought after low band spectrum in the 4G licence auction. This 800Mhz frequency meant our signal would go further, helping customers in both rural areas and with indoor coverage. As part of that agreement we committed to providing 4G coverage to 98% of the UK population (indoors), and also committed (along with the other operators) to providing 90% geographical landmass coverage across the UK.
The great news is the team have reached, and indeed exceeded, all of these commitments and this has now been confirmed by Ofcom. We’re delighted but will continue with our commitment to invest significantly in our network to help us further strengthen the experience for our customers through improved coverage, more reliability and increased capacity.”
