To celebrate the announcement of the #O24G launch plans, we’re turning 4.02pm into the 4G hour. On certain days at 4.02pm, until 29 August, we’ll be doing something a little bit special on Twitter at @O2. There’ll be prizes, information and questions all related to the launch of 4G.

So what are you waiting for? Get involved. Between 20-23 August, each day at 4.02pm, we’re going to play ‘4 days of 4G’ to get a lucky person ready for #O24G with an HTC One, which is 4G ready! All you’ll need to do is head to, tweet from that page and the more tweets we get, the more digits on the phone number that you need to call will be revealed. The first to call the number and get through will win the phone!

01 August 2013 – O2 today sets out its plans for its 4G network launch later this month, which will make it the fastest growing 4G network in the UK. The superfast 4G network will be switched on in London, Leeds and Bradford on 29th August, reaching up to five million people from launch. O2’s ambitious rollout plan aims to make 4G available to an additional two million people per month, culminating in O2’s 2G, 3G and 4G network reaching 98% of the UK population both indoor and outdoor.

By the end of the year, O2’s 4G network will be live in 13 cities. Further detail relating to the specific switch-on dates will be announced over the coming weeks.
