EE has made its 4G network available in Saltash in Carnwall, becoming the 250th town to benefit from the service. It is also the first town in Cornwall to gain access to the technology.

In addition, 4G has been made available in the following 20 towns from today: Bellshill, Sutton in Ashfield, Gravesend, Craigavon, Tyldesley, Cheshunt, Swadlincote, Bishop’s Stortford, Leyland, Guiseley, Ballymena, Frimley, Ormskirk, Potter’s Bar, Banbridge, Nailsea, Keynsham, Armagh City, Strabane and Dungannon.

It means since launch in October 2012, 4G from EE is available in 250 towns and cities, as well as 2,500 villages and small towns, covering 73 per cent of the UK population.

EE CEO Olaf Swantee said: “This is a landmark in our work to bring superfast mobile internet to as many people in as many places as possible. We know the benefits that 4G offers to consumers and businesses, and we’re investing heavily in areas that have not previously had good mobile or fixed line coverage where those benefits can have an ever greater impact.”
