Three delivering 95% 4G coverage across Longford

Three says it is delivering 4G broadband to 95% of Longford following extensive network upgrade across the county.

The average speed will be 4G of 19MB per second, as well as more sites as well as improved coverage for calls and texts. There will be over 250 GB of data going through the network ever hour.

Longford was one of the first counties in Ireland to upgrade to Three's €300 million national network investment, which involved network integration and extensive upgrading of equipment. Now people in Longford who are with Three have faster mobile data.

Speaking about the investment, David Hennessy, Chief Technical Officer with Three said “At Three, we want to make our customers’ lives mean more through connecting, and we are committed to delivering a state-of-the-art network nationwide. As one of the first areas to be upgraded, I’m delighted to see these improvements in Longford where we are now delivering 95% population coverage for 4G in addition to improved access to 2G and 3G.”

Three is rolling out its network upgrade programme across more counties.
