O2’s 4G network has switched on in Milngavie and Bearsden, giving people the opportunity to experience superfast data speeds on their mobile and tablet devices.
In the last twelve months, the amount of data being used on O2’s 3G network in the Glasgow area has jumped by 54 per cent, highlighting the growing demand for better connectivity and a richer mobile experience.
Ronan Dunne, CEO of O2, said: “We’re excited to be bringing our 4G network to Glasgow. Digital connectivity will be made ubiquitous by 4G and become the oxygen of modern life. It is our intention to use 4G to inspire the nation through the possibilities of technology, encouraging people to live more, do more and be more with O2.
“The full potential of 4G is as yet unexplored, but what we can be sure of is that it will allow for a whole new world of opportunity that people are now ready for. Over half of our customers say they use more data than two years ago, as can be seen by the 54 per cent increase in Glasgow alone over the last 12 months.
“Given this trend, there is no doubt that 4G will transform our lives, be it as consumers, in business or through public sector services.”
