British mobile network operator O2 UK has announced that its 4G network will be available in 6,000 towns across the UK, representing coverage of 87% of the ‘outdoor population’. The second largest operator in UK is marching towards its goal of covering 98% of population by the end of 2017.

In the obligations set in the concession contract, O2 also specified that the 4G LTE network should cover at least 95% of the population of England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales by the end of next year.

Launched in August 2013, O2’s 4G network is part of the operator’s £3bn network modernization program. It currently provides 4G LTE service in the UK through spectrum in the 800 Mhz band. Owned by Spanish telecommunications giant Telefonica, O2 has approximately 25 million customers in the UK.
