Hi Aidan, 4G on the 700 band is being rolled out nationwide. I would expect where you get 3G you'll also get 4G its just a matter of timing

I cant make that promise - 4G upgrades involve techs adding new hardware to sites and is happening nationwide. All I can say is it will come

Hi @Aidanp,

 

As Nigel has mentioned before that we are trying to roll out 4G network nationwide, just a matter of time.

 

The reason why your mobile is picking up 4G signal is because there might be a tower nearby that has 4G. However keeping in mind it seems like that the tower is at a distance thats why you are getting 1 or 2 bars depending on the site traffic.

 

Kind regards,
Arif Khan.
