EE teams up with AT&T to offer 4G services abroad
EE has announced a new roaming partnership with AT&T which allows its customers to use 4G abroad.
The UK's largest network will launch additional international partnerships next year as the worldwide adoption of LTE gathers pace. EE will work with its 'Rest of the World' partners on 'innovative new wholesale models' to help customers stay connected abroad.
The operator has made itself partner of choice for international operators after the quick rollout of its 4G network which cover more than 160 towns and cities by Christmas.
EE CEO Olaf Swantee said: ‘Technology is not just shaping how people book and research holidays; but what they look for when they are choosing a country to visit. From finding their way to local landmarks, to avoiding the Oxford street crowds by shopping on their tablet, tourists are increasingly looking for fast and reliable mobile experiences when they travel abroad. With the biggest and fastest 4G network in the UK, we can provide our partners’ customers with the best mobile experience to stay connected when they visit the UK.’
