Vodafone is using old phone boxes in towns across the UK to boost 4G coverage at a time of rising data volumes. Miniature 4G roof units with a signal radius of 200 metres are being used to provide 4G in busy areas of Brighton, Edgware, Edinburgh, Guildford, Harrow, Oxford and Polzeath and Sennen Cove beaches in Cornwall.
Scott Petty, Chief Technology Officer at Vodafone UK, said: “Our network has never been busier as more people rely on their smartphones and expect a fast, reliable connection. Across the UK, we see old phone boxes being used as libraries, shops and even aquariums. With our technology, they are returning to their roots.”
