EE signs up businesses in b2b 4G push
Construction firm Kier, Microsoft and taxi firm Addison Lee are testing EE's 4G offer in b2b services for their industries.
The operator said it is running a number of pilot schemes with a range of companies. Kier is trialling a 4G service to cut the time it takes to set-up remote construction sites and allow its design teams to effectively work on-site. Microsoft is looking at 4G to strengthen its mobile workforce by backing up wi-fi. Addison Lee is using the technology to offer in-car mobile internet for its customers.
Olaf Swantee, CEO, EE, said: 'To see UK businesses already benefitting from 4G after such a short time is great news. Demand from small, medium, large and public sector organisations across the nation has been very positive since we launched 4GEE. We’re proud to be already powering some of Britain’s biggest and best known companies and are committed to delivering a superfast connection to many more by the end of this year.'
