O2 announces Superfast 3G900 and network speed tests
Superfast 3G900

O2 has just announced that they’ve switched on a new superfast 3G 900MHz network in London. This will offer greater coverage, a 50% increase in network capacity and 30% faster downloads – all in all a superior customer experience.
3G900 services have already been deployed in Leeds, Birmingham and Manchester, with more cities to follow in the coming months.
This is the latest in a series of network enhancements for O2 and a first for the UK. This means on the O2 network, more customers can use more data, and experience it quicker.


UK network speed tests

As part of O2’s regular and rigorous network testing, SIRODA, the network specialists have compared the data speeds of all five UK operators. The tests show that, between October 2010 and January 2011, O2 offered the best data experience in 12 out of 13 cities. On average, web page access on O2’s network was delivered in 1.4 seconds, over three times quicker than the slowest operator.
