EE's 4G rollout has continued, with another 12 towns receiving next generation services.
The latest step in the network's introduction of 4G means residents in Aylesbury, Berkhamsted, Billericay, Blackpool, Brentwood, Dewsbury, Huddersfield, Lytham St Annes, Marlow, Pontefract, Thame and Windsor can sign up to 4G contracts. More than 50% of the UK's population can now access 4G, with EE planning to introduce it to another 18 towns and cities by the end of June.
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. We’re committed to rolling out 4G to 98% of the population by the end of 2014, and that includes the double-speed 4G that will launch this summer.'
