EE’s superfast 4G mobile network will hit 17 more cities by March 2013.
EE’s 4G network, which offers speeds roughly five times as fast as 3G, will be switched on in Bradford, Chelmsford, Coventry, Doncaster, Dudley, Leicester, Luton, Newport, Reading, Rotherham, St Albans, Sunderland, Sutton Coldfield, Walsall, Watford, West Bromwich and Wolverhampton by the end of next Spring.
“By the end of the first quarter of 2013, 4G will be available in 35 towns and cities across the UK, making superfast mobile accessible to thousands more customers and businesses every day,” said EE’s Chief Executive Officer Olaf Swantee.
“We’re delighted with the progress of the 4G rollout – we are improving the network every day, delivering superfast mobile to more and more people right across metropolitan areas, whether they’re using their devices outdoors or in their homes and offices. This has struck a chord with businesses in particular, with great demand being seen. We’re delighted to already be powering large, medium and small businesses with 4G.”
Last week, 4G was switched on in Derby, Newcastle and Nottingham; Belfast, Hull, Maidenhead and Slough will be switched on before the end of 2012.
EE are also continuing to invest in 3G technologies, aiming to bump their speeds by adding the DC-HSPA standard to all their 4G enabled devices.
