Mobile phone provider Three has launched a UK ‘4G Super Voice’ service, stating that it will improve reception inside buildings and rural black spots.
In its latest blog the network stated that: “This is a roll-out of low frequency 800MHz spectrum that allows mobile signal to travel much further into buildings and rural areas, removing many current coverage ‘blackspots’ across the country.”
It’ll allow customers to make calls, send texts and go online in places they may have previously had poor or no signal.
“The combination of both the lower and higher spectrum frequencies (1800MHz), which we’re currently using, means customers will benefit from the advantages of each, namely an end to no indoor coverage, annoying blackspots and better call connections.”
The scheme currently works on only the Samsung Galaxy S5, but recent iPhone handsets will be added to the list in the upcoming months.
Currently the service is being launched in:
It is estimated that up to 5.5 million customers would have access to the service by 2017. For the cloud computing industry this change can only be positive, as it’s providing even more opportunities for network users to access their information on the cloud, through the Internet.
