A Shared Rural Network mast, near Lockerbie and funded by the UK government, is the first of 120 planned upgrades to bolster 4G reception across Scotland.
Vodafone customers living and working in parts of the Scottish Borders are benefiting from reliable and fast Vodafone 4G thanks to the completion of the first Shared Rural Network (SRN) mast funded by the UK government.
The mast, located close to Lockerbie, is the first of more than 120 planned mast upgrades across Scotland resulting from the Government’s £75m investment into the SRN programme. Residents, businesses and visitors are now enjoying faster and more reliable data speeds, as well as better-quality voice calls, with the arrival of Vodafone to the area.
The mast hosts equipment installed by the Vodafone team on behalf of Three and Virgin Media O2, with EE 4G also available on the mast. The four operators are improving 4G coverage across the UK as part of the wider £1bn SRN programme.
