O2 announces mobile broadband expansion

Bookmark and Share

by David Allen

The mobile provider O2 will be making some serious investment into extending its network coverage over the next couple of years.

At the same time, the firm will be improving the network’s capacity by increasing the amount of new base stations as well as upgrading existing sites from 2G to 3G.

Currently O2’s 3G HSPA network covers around eighty five per cent.

The aim of these upgrades and improvements is to improve upon this.

As expected, the upgrading will begin in London with around forty sites joining the network before the end of the year and then, by the end of 2010, the company is hoping to increase the network by a further hundred and sixty sites.

So far, it is believed that £500 million has been spent by O2 during the past couple of years.
