EE launches 4G service in 12 more towns


New areas switched on include Blackpool, Huddersfield, Marlow, Pontefract and Windsor

EE has launched its 4G service in 12 more areas of the UK, taking the total number of towns and cities able to receive the service to 62.

The new areas switched on today (April 30) are: Aylesbury, Berkhamsted, Billericay, Blackpool, Brentwood, Dewsbury, Huddersfield, Lytham St Annes, Marlow, Pontefract, Thame and Windsor with 18 more expected to be added by the end of June.

EE claims it is currently on track to cover 70 per cent of the UK population by the end of this year and 98 per cent of the population by the end of next year.

Earlier this month EE announced it is doubling its 4G speeds in 10 areas where it has already launched the service.

EE CEO Olaf Swantee said: “Our rollout of the country’s first 4G mobile network is continuing at a great pace to ensure that we are connecting people right across the UK to one of the fastest mobile networks in the world, as quickly as possible.

“Consumers and businesses in the UK use mobile internet more than any other market, and rely on it for long commutes; there is a demand for the best mobile services, and we’re working to meet that demand.”
