New 4G Locations - Updated Weekly

[ Edited ]

Hey everybody,

With our previous commitment to rolling out 4G in more-and-more locations, coupled with our recent spectrum acquisition and rapid roll-out of it, we're going to use this thread to announce new locations where 4G has gone live so you can keep up-to-date on the latest roll-out news. We'll update this thread each week (usually Fridays) with new location announcements.

This weeks announcement?
Rollout continues throughout December, though no locations have been announced on Social Media. We'll look to start these up again in early 2019.

Previous announcements


More info
Though our 4G rollouts continued in December, we've not made any location announcements via Social Media. After our network outage in early December, our sole focus was in getting our network back up and running for all customers, and then monitoring our network closely to ensure maximum performance and reliability.

We'll work on new plans to announce locations early in the new year. See you then!

Other locations: 
As we have over 17,000 locations across the UK with 4G coverage, it's not feasible to list them all in this thread. We've included new locations we've 'switched on' since the start of 2018, and will update this list weekly.

Coverage: If you'd like to check coverage levels in other locations not mentioned in this thread, you can use our coverage checker here. If you're in a location that doesn't yet have 4G, we are bringing 4G to more and more locations - so we hope you'll see the benefit of our network & spectrum investments in the near future.

Network issues: Unfortunately unforeseen faults and issues can happen, but when they do, our network teams look to resolve these as a priority for our customers. If you're experiencing issues where you normally have good coverage and signal, you can check service status updates here. You can also check out our self help guide here which may help resolve your issue, and we have a video here that may help you resolve any issues you may have.

Re: New 4G Locations - Updated Weekly

Just a quick question @Chris_K - do locations that get switched on from now automatically include the new frequncies, or would they get "old" 4G and then get updated?

It's a bit of a mixture - our focus is on continuing our network modernisation programme to bring 4G and network improvements to as many locations as possible and with that, our network team will analyse each location to decide which part of our spectrum will be most suitable.

Just updated original post with new locations where 4G is live in beautiful Stirlingshire.

Re: New 4G Locations - Updated Weekly

Today's National Fish & Chips day and we've just switched on 4G at some beautiful beaches, just in time for the Summer. So if you're near any of these, why not go and soak up some sun - and maybe enjoy a chippy afterwards? tongue winking
