O2 delivers first mobile internet connection to one of the most remote villages in the UK

O2 has installed the first permanent 4G mobile mast in Staylittle, in Powys, Wales, bringing mobile connectivity to a rural community that was completely cut off from all communications just over 18 months ago.

In the Summer of 2015, Staylittle experienced a total communication black-out, leaving the village completely cut off from the outside world for nearly two weeks. With the nearest town located approximately eight miles away, Staylittle residents relied on one working landline in the local Post Office to keep in touch with family, friends and customers.

Residents were forced to stay indoors to make and receive phone calls and had to resort to expensive, patchy satellite home internet to get online. In response, O2 installed a temporary 2G mobile mast in the village in 2015, bringing mobile connectivity which enabled voice calls and texts in Staylittle for the first time. Since then O2 has worked tirelessly, in collaboration with local authorities, to install a permanent 4G mobile mast. The new mobile mast now provides full 3G and 4G coverage to the entire village, enabling villagers to connect to the internet and make calls from wherever they are in the area. The installation represents part of O2's on-going commitment to providing mobile connectivity across the UK.

Beyond Staylittle, almost 400 more Welsh villages are set to benefit from O2's commitment to improving rural network coverage from now until the end of the year. O2 invests over £2 million every day to develop its network across the UK and its 4G network now covers 96.8 per cent of the UK population outdoors.

O2's installation of the 4G mobile mast has helped to enhance the lives of those in Staylittle, enabling them to access the internet and speak to family and friends wherever they are in the area.
