EE has launch ‘double speed’ 4G in Belfast, Newcastle and Southampton today (July 24).

This brings the total number of cities to enjoy speeds of up to 60Mbps to 15, after the service, which has average speeds of 24-30Mbps, was launched in Derby, Nottingham, Birmingham, Bristol, Cardiff, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Leeds, Liverpool, London, Manchester and Sheffield earlier this month.

The operator has also switched 4G on in 10 more towns (Altrincham, Bedford, Camberley, Crawley, Farnborough, Farnham , Maidstone, Rochdale, Tonbridge and Welwyn Garden City) which means its superfast network now covers almost 60 per cent of the UK population.

EE CEO Olaf Swantee said: “It has been a busy summer with the launch of next generation services including Cash on Tap and new Shared 4GEE plans, and we’re continuing to keep up the pace of our 4G rollout.”
