EE turns on 4G in another nine regions
EE has rolled out its 4G service to 45% of the UK's population, turning on the service in nine new areas.
The service is now available in Amersham, Bolton, Chelmsford, Hemel Hempstead, Southend-on-Sea, Stockport, Sunderland, Sutton Coldfield and Wolverhampton. The operator said work is continuing on improving the density of 4G services within a region. At least 80% of the area will have access to next generation services.
EE CEO Olaf Swantee said: 'As the first operator to bring 4G to the UK it is important that we make it accessible to as much of the population as possible, as quickly as possible. To be ahead of schedule and covering approximately 45% of the population within just 90 days of the launch is a great achievement for our network team. We continue to bring superfast mobile to more and more people, whether they’re using their devices outdoors or in their homes and offices, and to increase the speed and consistency of our 4G and 3G network across the UK.'
