Residents all over Mablethorpe suffered O2 mobile signal loss yet again this week with more problems yet to come over the coming month.

The mobile phone service provider spent time in the coastal town last week in preparation of upgrading the site they have for the launch of 4G in Mablethorpe.

Problems with O2?

This is part of a multi-million pound investment to enhance the O2 service.

A spokesperson for O2 said: “The mast will undergo some extensive work and needs quite a bit of preparation with rigging equipment in order to carry out the upgrade works.

“This work was completed by 6pm on Friday (May 1) and the service was fully restored.”

But with a number of residents in the town complaining about lack of phone signal and not being able to use their phones, there maybe further trouble ahead.

The spokesperson added; “We are going to be carrying out the full enhancement to bring the improvements, but in order to do this, we will need to lock down the mast again.”

The O2 spokesperson added: “We plan to install the upgraded equipment between, May 11-14, which will result in the site being powered down while the engineers carry out their works.

“We will be confirming and notifying customers of the planned works on Friday via text message.

“The engineers will carry this out as quickly as possible to minimise any disruption.

“We apologise for any inconvenience.”

Is the lack of O2 signal worth it given the knowledge that 4G is finally coming to Mablethorpe?
