The mobile phone network said it is bringing its 4G service to Shipdham, near Dereham, next month as well as improving its 2G and 3G network.

Work is scheduled to start the week commencing August 7 and, subject to successful implementation and testing, customers will see the new and improved service in the following weeks.

During the work, there may be times when a customer's signal experiences intermittent service.

But 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 for Telefónica UK, said: 'I'm delighted that O2 customers in Shipdham will soon be able to experience faster mobile internet making everything easier when using their phone or tablet.
