Economic research commissioned by O2 last year revealed that the extra stimulus provided by 4G is equivalent to a 31% boost over and above the underlying job growth trend for a rural community [1].

Derek McManus, Chief Operating Officer, O2 said: “I’m delighted that O2 customers in more rural communities in Wales can now experience faster mobile internet. We continue to invest in bringing data coverage to as many locations as possible and have put forward an industry led proposal around a Single Rural Network which we believe is the best way to provide coverage in rural areas. We are already working with government on what this proposed network will look like – and we hope to announce further progress on this front shortly.”

O2 currently offers 4G in almost 19,000 cities, towns and villages across the UK and spends the equivalent of £2 million a day on strengthening its network and increasing its reach. We were also recently awarded uSwitch’s 2019 award for Best Network Coverage, as voted by the public. For more information please visit www.o2.co.uk/connectivity
