EE switches on 4G in nine more towns and cities

Superfast network now available in 37 locations, with this figure set to almost double by June

EE has made 4G available in nine new UK towns and cities, bringing the total number of locations covered by the technology to 37 since launch last November.

Today, 4G is being switched on in Barnsley, Chorley, Coventry, Newport, Preston, Rotherham, Telford, Walsall and Watford. A further 35 towns and cities will be 4G-enabled by June, brining the total to 72 locations.

The superfast network now covers the homes and businesses of more than 45 per cent of the UK population. EE is aiming to raise that figure to 98 per cent by the end of next year.

Mobile devices currently sold by EE that are compatible with 4G include the Apple iPhone 5 and iPad mini, Samsung Galaxy S III LTE, BlackBerry Z10 and Huawei Mobile Wi-Fi. The HTC One, which will go on sale  at EE next month, is also 4G-enabled.

EE CEO Olaf Swantee said: “We’re committed to making the UK’s first 4G service available to as many people, as quickly as possible. We’re setting the pace for the delivery of 4G in the UK, and it’s a great achievement for our engineering teams to be able to launch in another nine towns this month, enabling more and more consumers and businesses to take advantage of superfast mobile internet.”
