O2 will soon be launching 4G in Cranleigh
Access to faster mobile internet will make local businesses more competitive and will make life in general much easier for enterprise and residents.
Bringing 4G to the village is something the Cranleigh Chamber of Commerce has been working hard to make happen since our new committee was elected in April, so we are very pleased to see O2 accept the challenge of becoming the first provider to switch on this high speed mobile internet service in Cranleigh.
Here are the details from O2:
O2, the mobile phone network, has announced it has started work this week to bring its 4G service to Cranleigh as well as improving its 2G and 3G network. O2’s 4G network will bring high speed mobile internet to its customers in the area.
Work is scheduled to be completed by Tuesday 25th August. Subject to successful implementation and testing, customers will see the new and improved service shortly afterwards. During the work, there may be times when a customer’s signal experiences intermittent service. We recommend that customers download the TUGo app which enables them to make and receive calls on any wifi-connected device using their mobile number.

Derek McManus, Chief Operating Officer, Telefónica UK said: “O2 customers in Cranleigh will soon be able to experience faster mobile internet on their devices such as streaming high definition TV, shopping on the go, and video calling. For our business customers, 4G is all about working more effectively. They can work remotely, access cloud services, collaborate using apps and so on. 4G will make everything easier for them.”
O2 is spending £600 million in 2015 on its network and by the end of 2017 will have invested over £3billion in 4G and the modernisation of its 2G and 3G networks across the UK.
O2 currently offers 4G in over 530 towns and cities across the UK. It is the only network to have made a commitment to Ofcom, the telecommunications regulator, to provide indoor coverage for 98% of the UK population by the end of 2017.
