EE has accelerated its 4G push after ten more towns were switched on to the superfast network today.
Altrincham, Bedford, Camberley, Crawley, Farnborough, Farnham , Maidstone, Rochdale, Tonbridge and Welwyn Garden City are the latest to go live, meaning that close to 60% of the UK population is now covered by 4G.
Elsewhere, Belfast, Newcastle and Southampton have become the latest cities with the ability to offer their residents double speed 4G (with average speeds of 24-30Mps), continuing the rollout that started in 12 cities on 4 July.
Olaf Swantee, EE’s CEO, 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. Today we’re launching in a further 10 UK towns bringing superfast 4G services to more and more businesses and consumers. The arrival of double speed 4G in a further three cities means we remain one step ahead, and on track to provide our customers with a world leading mobile experience.’
