Pure boosts phone coverage with transmitter
10 Aug 2017
A Shrewsbury telecoms company has boosted the phone signal for thousands of people in the town.
Pure Telecom has arranged for an O2 transmitter to be installed on Shrewsbury Business Park.
With a radius of up to six miles, the mast will vastly improve signal for huge numbers of employees at offices there, as well as residents and visitors in the surrounding area.
“We had a meeting with our partner O2 who confirmed their impressive plans to extend 3G and 4G throughout Shropshire by the end of the year,” said Matt Sandford, managing director of Pure Telecom, which is based on the business park.
“We have already seen significant improvement so far in 2017, with 3G coming in many areas of the county.
“However, Shrewsbury Business Park was a particular black spot and so we have arranged for a temporary mast to be installed, meaning that the companies here now have wall to wall 3G and 4G.
“A new permanent transmitter will be on line in December at the entrance to the park.
“This upgrade in technology is good news for everyone. Connectivity enables us to communicate and trade more easily, attracting business and creating new jobs so it plays a pivotal role in supporting the future growth of the economy throughout the country.
“If anyone would like to move to O2 then they should contact Pure Telecom as we are the only O2 direct partner in the West Midlands,” Matt added.
