Mobile phones, Tech Digest news

ee-4g-top.jpgEE have rolled out their superfast 4G network to a further 13 cities today, which means that now half the UK population has access to their 4G service should they want it.

On track for EE’s goal to have 70% of the country covered by the end of the year, EE 4G can now be accessed in Bradford, Bingley, Doncaster, Dudley, Harpenden, Leicester, Lichfield, Loughborough, Luton, Reading, Shipley, St Albans and West Bromwich.

The news follows the announcement last week that EE will be brining superfast mobile download speeds to the deep reaches of rural Cumbria, where some struggle to get any internet access at all.

The other 37 towns with EE 4G are Amersham, Barnsley, Belfast, Birmingham, Bolton, Bristol, Cardiff, Chelmsford, Chorley, Coventry, Derby, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Hemel Hempstead, Hull, Leeds, Liverpool, London, Maidenhead, Manchester, Newbury, Newcastle, Newport, Nottingham, Preston, Rotherham, Sheffield, Slough, Southampton, Southend-on-Sea, Stockport, Sunderland, Sutton Coldfield, Telford, Walsall, Watford and Wolverhampton.

EE is aiming for 98% of the UK population to have 4G mobile coverage from their network by the end of 2014.
