A further 24 villages and hamlets in the Welsh counties of Clwyd, Dyfed, Gwent, Gwynedd and West Glamorga have now gained access to faster 4G based mobile phone and mobile broadband services after O2 expanded the reach of their network. The upgrades have all taken place since the start of 2019.

Since the beginning of the year, 4G has been launched in the following rural communities: Argoed, Felindre, Llanengan, Nash, Ashfield, Fochriw, Llangadog, Pantglas, Babel, Glan-Traeth, Llangian, Pantymwyn, Botwnnog, Gwernaffield, Llanmorlais, Rhedyn, Bynea, Landimore, Manordeilo, Towyn, Cilcain, Llandegwning, Nanhoron, Trearddur.

Derek McManus, COO of O2 UK, said: “I’m delighted that O2 customers in more rural communities in Wales can now experience faster mobile internet. We continue to invest in bringing data coverage to as many locations as possible and have put forward an industry led proposal around a Single Rural Network which we believe is the best way to provide coverage in rural areas. We are already working with government on what this proposed network will look like – and we hope to announce further progress on this front shortly.”

    This is good of 02, given Ofcom confirmed they met the 4G premise coverage obligation of 95% (98% UK wide) by the end of 2017.

    What about rural and semi rural areas of England and Scotland? Remember not everyone lives in a tiny village with a 100 people.

    Would have thought this was VF Beacon rather than O2 standalone.

    Mike why should I get and antenna? I live in a small town with 4000 population, if you can provide coverage for 1000 people then why not my area. The nimbys are rife and preventing s basic service, it has to stop. Antenna wouldn’t make any difference there’s only 2G week signal, O2 have never upgraded the mast 3 miles sways away.

    Informative stuff that you have shared with us. O2 mobiles store is providing really nice offers. I prefer to use broadband comparison services before purchasing the package just like mobile redleos.com/mobile-app-design-and-development/ comparison. O2 offer excellent customer service and fast broadband up to 16Mbp. Anyways, appreciative efforts that you have made to share the nice piece of content with us. Thanks
