Three UK is tackling mobile black spots and bringing superfast services to Southport after rolling out its new 4G Super-Voice initiative in the area. Customers in Merseyside will soon be able to enjoy faster speeds and improved coverage as part of the mobile network’s plans to extend 4G coverage nationwide.
Three has invested heavily in its 4G network during the last year with a series of initiatives and new sites. It has also launched a new Three InTouch application for Android and iOS, which enables customers to make free calls and texts via Wi-Fi even if they are in an area with no signal.
Smartphone and tablet users in Southport can now look forward to the benefits of Three’s 4G Super-Voice, dubbed the “Blackspot Banisher.” The new tech uses low frequency signals that travel further into buildings in urban and rural areas so that users can take advantage of their calls, texts and data in locations that they couldn’t previously.
As noted by the Southport Visitor, Three is now extending 4G Super-Voice to people across Liverpool, with Director of Customer Strategy Danny Dixon revealing that it would be key to delivering a “quality experience.” The service is already available to two-thirds of the UK population and is estimated to reach 5.5 million customers by the end of 2017.
Three Chief Technology Officer Bryn Jones said: “By the end of the year, millions of our customers will have access to better indoor coverage and be able to use their phones in more places than ever before. We are proud to be the first network to roll this out across the country, and deliver better coverage to the people living in Liverpool and the surrounding areas.”
Customers with handsets including the Samsung Galaxy S7 and iPhone 6 Plus will soon get a notification about the availability of the new software.
