O2 has announced today that it will soon be launching 4G in Mossbank and Ollaberry.

The mobile phone company says it plans to bring 4G service to the areas as well as improving its 2G and 3G network.

O2 says work is scheduled to start on 27th March and following testing, customers will see an improved service in the following weeks.

The company said during the work, there may be times of intermittent service and “customers can download the O2 TU Go app which enables them to make and receive calls on any wifi-connected device using their mobile number.”

Derek McManus, chief operating officer of Telefónica UK, said: “I’m delighted that O2 customers in Mossbank and Ollaberry, Shetland will soon be able to experience faster mobile internet making everything easier when using their phone or tablet. They’ll be able to stream high definition TV, shop on the go and use video calling. For our business customers, using 4G means they can be more effective and flexible by working remotely, accessing cloud services and collaborating using apps.”
