Better mobile internet coverage will soon be heading to Belper, after O2 announced it has started work to bring their 4G service to the town.

Work is scheduled to start on Wednesday (September 9) and will last until Saturday (September 12).

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

During the work, there may be times when a customer’s signal experiences intermittent service.

Customers can download the O2 TUGo app which enables them to make and receive calls on any wifi-connected device using their mobile number.

Derek McManus, chief operating officer of Telefónica UK, said: “O2 customers in Belper 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 and will make everything easier for them.”
