Mobile phone provider Vodafone has this week begun to rollout its 4G network in Belper.
The company says this means all customers with compatible devices and bundles will be able to connect to the internet more quickly, more reliably and in more places than ever before.
The rollout is part of a £2 billion programme Vodafone is undertaking on its network and services in the UK across 2014 and 2015.
A spokesperson for Vodafone UK said: “The arrival of 4G brings Vodafone customers the ability to take advantage of a wide range of entertainment whether at home or on the go, offering music, sport, movies and TV through Vodafone’s leading content partnerships.
“Vodafone has now extended its 4G coverage to 690 larger cities, towns and districts as well as thousands of smaller communities across the UK.
“4G services will also help businesses improve productivity by enabling employees to work where they want to, when they want to.”
Vodafone’s aim it so provide coverage using 2G, 3G or 4G services to 98 per cent of the UK population and 3G coverage for the first time to 100 remote communities across the UK.
