The head of the Three network has said the company has significantly expanded its once seriously patchy coverage in Northern Ireland as the mobile operator drops roaming charges for customers using their devices in the Republic.

Speaking to the Belfast Telegraph in a video interview, chief executive of Three, Dave Dyson, said the company was expanding faster in Northern Ireland than in other region of the UK as well as improving its previous limited coverage.

Meanwhile in a boost to those living in border regions, Three has abolished roaming charges for customers using their phones in the Republic - as well as in six other countries.

But despite the recent hype surrounding new 4G mobile technology, customers are unlikely to experience the faster network coverage in the near future.

And ahead of Tuesday's much anticipated and secretive launch of Apple's new iPhone, Dave Dyson says the devices could hit the stores later this month.
