Phone operator EE has completed a roll out of 4G mobile coverage in Wymondham.
The firm, which is part of the BT Group, began work on rolling out its 4G coverage to the town in October, and completed full testing of its new installations early this month.
Marc Allera, chief executive of EE, said: 'We've seen the difference 4G is making right across the UK, and we're delighted to be bringing this great network experience to more locations in Norfolk so that people can enjoy everything from making crystal clear calls in more places over 4G, HD video calls with friends and family, or streaming music and live TV on the move.'
Tim Whitley, regional director for BT in the East of England, said: 'The switch on of EE's 4G network in any rural community is a hugely significant event and that's definitely the case here in Wymondham.
'There is a growing reliance on mobile devices to provide greater access to information and enable easier communication with customers, family and friends. Both local businesses and residents depend on them like never before and it's great to see such investment taking place locally.'
