Hey guys,

CFLV2.jpg

We've got an amazing competition for you this week, but first, let us tell you a little about Countryfile Live and why it's an incredible day out for the family.

What is Countryfile Live?
Representing the best of the British countryside across four days, Countryfile Live is guaranteed to be one of this summer’s best days out. You can meet all your favourite BBC Countryfile heroes on The Main Stage; Be entertained by Mountain Biking and Shetlands in the Mane Arena; Get back to nature with the National Trust; And see your favourite TV chefs live at the Le Creuset Kitchen Theatre at Countryfile Live.

When is it?
This year is bigger and better than ever, because for the first time ever, Countryfile Live will also be heading to Castle Howard. So, there's now two weekends packed full of excitement.

Blenheim Palace: 1-4 August
Castle Howard: 15-18 August

Why is O2 there?
We're here to meet our customers, share with them our latest plans - such as the recent announcement of the industry proposal of a Shared Rural Network - and help them out with anything they need. We'll also have some treats with us, exclusively for customers with the O2 Priority app, just to make the day even more epic. As many who attend Countryfile Live live in rural communities, here's just some of what we'll focus on:

  • Improved coverage in the Highlands and Islands, including having installed 85 generators, which will ensure that our rural customers can enjoy uninterrupted service, even when the power goes down due to inclement weather. On average, this saves our customers 250 hours of connectivity, that would have otherwise been lost.
  • We're investing in rural Britain. From the Shetland Islands, where our coverage has more than doubled in the last two years; to the Fair Isle, where broadband speeds have been historically poor, but 4G has revolutionised connectivity for the residents. We also now have a mast on Saxa Vord, the most Northerly site on our network.
  • We're backing a proposal for a Shared Rural Network (SRN). If implemented and supported by the industry, Government and Ofcom, the SRN would increase all-operator geographic coverage from the current level of 67% to 92%, with partial not-spots almost disappearing. More info here.
  • We’ve constructed our first 4G 50 metre mast near Inverness. The height of the mast has significantly improved the range and performance of 4G connectivity for customers in the area and provides a blueprint for others.


TICKET GIVEAWAY!!!
So here's the really really good bit. We've got 4 x Family tickets up for grabs and you choose which day and event/location you want to go to - whether it's this Saturday or Sunday at Blenheim Palace, or any day (Thursday to Sunday) at Castle Howard.

All you need to do to enter is comment below and tell us which day & event you'd attend and why you want to go to Countryfile Live. We'll choose winners at random and PM you to get some details.

Competition closes 4PM Wednesday 31 July 2019. 
Usual competition T&C's apply

Congratulations again to our winners for winning tickets to this fantastic family day out, and of course to anyone who purchased tickets and attended, we hope you had an amazing day out too - and managed to get a treat or two from the O2 area! wink

 

Our guru James was out at the event with his camera and he snapped a few photos for us that I wanted to share. As you can see, Blenheim Palace was a busy place, with folk going with their familes, other halfs, and even their dogs. O2 was there, dishing out free O2 Wifi for everyone so you could use our data, not your own. And we also had some boosted coverage there too just to make sure our O2 customers had signal throughout the event. O2 Priority was a big hit - especially the ice cream! Check out some of the action below.

Yep, the ice cream was going down very well @Chris_K.
Unless you read the label (or the small print on the app) you wouldn't even have known it was made from goat's milk!!
