Mobile phone reception in the Westruther area should improve as O2 starts work on bringing its 4G service to the area, as well as upgrading its 2G and 3G network.
Work is scheduled to start next week, subject to successful implementation and testing, and customers should see an improved service in the following weeks.
During the work, there might be times when customers’ signals experiences intermittent service.
Customers can download the O2 TUGo app which enables them to make and receive calls on any wifi-connected device using their mobile number. For details, visit www.o2.co.uk/apps/tu-go

“For business customers, 4G is about working more effectively and will make everything easier for them.”
