Planning permission has been granted for a replacement 15 metre telephone mast and base station near  the roundabout at Broughton Shopping park.  ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

The application was submitted by Vodafone and 02-owner Telefonica, there weren’t any objections to the application. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

We contacted Vodafone to find out when the 4G service will be available, we didn’t get very far! ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Vodfones online coverage checker suggests there wont be 4G coverage any time soon, and no work is planned. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

4G is the fourth generation of mobile phone technology and follows on from 2G and 3G. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

2G technology was suitable for making calls and sending text messages while 3G makes it possible to access the internet more effectively through your mobile phone. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

4G services should make it much quicker to surf the web on your mobile, tablets and laptops – speeds will be nearer to what you currently experience with home broadband, 4G is ideally suited for services which demand more capacity like video streaming, mapping and social networking sites. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​
