We’ve noticed a few tweets and posts on Facebook from people in Hawarden claiming they are now receiving a 4G signal.

Upon on further investigation it appears to be correct – Hawarden has gone 4G

Yellow areas receive the 4G signal

A new mobile phone mast was erected opposite Strikes Garden Centre on Galdstone Way towards the end of September despite local opposition, the new combined 3G and 4G mast replaced the existing 3G mast.

Cllr Clive Carver who is both a Flintshire County Councillor and a Hawarden Community Councillor submitted a ‘Robust Objection’ letter to the new mast on the grounds it may interfere with TV frequencies in the area.

Meanwhile last week it appeared Vodafone had completed all the necessary work to turn on the 4G signal.

EE also has a strong 4G signal in Hawarden according to their map (above)

So, while Hawarden revels in the delights of super fast 4G, spare a thought for some of those people at the bottom of the hill in Queensferry who still struggle to get anything close to 3G on EE at least – tough luck as they say…
