Stamford - Still No 3G

Anonymous

I wish O2 would give us some 3G coverage in the town. Still only GPRS coverage which is heavily congested at peak times (took 5 mins tonight to load up even the Google homepage).

 

Bourne has now got 3G so why not Stamford????

According to the coverage checker neither area has any 3G coverage:

Unfortunately O2 don't give out information about network upgrades.

looks like 3g900 is getting close assuming you have a 3g900 enabled handset

On my way home from the station last night I noticed that Stamford now has a 3G signal. It is a bit patchy and not that fast, but at least 3G has arrived!

Looks like the mast near the A1/A606 has been converted to 3G900 which now gives outside coverage to Stamford and large parts of rural surroundings. Hopefully the Wothorpe/Quarry Farm/Stamford College ones will soon be converted to give real depth of signal. Some 2100 coverage would be good too to relieve congestion but we're heading in the right direction 🙂
