MOBILE phone company Three is opening a new store in Sutton’s Idlewells Shopping Centre following a ‘massive surge’ in demand from smartphone users in the area.
The amount of data Sutton folk are using on their smartphones leapt by more than 377 per cent in the past year.
Three has also spent more than £430,000 increasing high-speed mobile data coverage in the district.
Store manager Mel Jordan said: “Smartphones are really taking off across Sutton and we’re expecting up to 90 per cent of people who either take on, or renew, contracts this year to pick a smartphone when they upgrade.”
The new store will open on 24th November.
