High speed 4G internet will be coming to Lewes in the coming months as Vodafone begin to bring the technology to the town.
While the work will take some time to complete, the mobile phone company confirmed it is beginning to bring 4G into the area.
The company is also expected to improve the town’s current 3G service as part of the work.
The news has been welcomed by Lewes MP Maria Caulfield. She said: “We have all come face to face with the frustration of trying to upload important details from an email, or gain information from the internet, but being unable to do so due to poor network coverage.
“In a world that is now, more than ever before constantly on the move, I think that steps forward, such as this, are key to the progress that an area can make, both socially, and economically.
“I look very much forward to hearing of the benefits that residents are able to recognise as a result of this investment in the local area by Vodafone.”
The arrival of 4G in Lewes means residents with compatible devices will be able to connect to the internet more quickly, more reliably and in more places.
Vodafone UK spokesperson said: “We continue to invest heavily in rolling out 4G across the UK so that our customers can benefit from higher mobile speeds and greater reliability. We’ve invested more than £2 billion in our network and services since 2014 and expect to invest another £2 billion in them over the next three years.
