EE has ramped up its 4G operations by switching on its ultrafast network in 12 more towns.
4G goes live in Antrim, Coleraine and Newtownabbey in Northern Ireland, Bridgend and Pontypool in Wales, Livingstone in Scotland and Burnley, Leigh, Macclesfield, Nuneaton, Sittingbourne and Tamworth in England today (28 March). There are now 187 towns across the UK with the service.
Key routes between Edinburgh and Glasgow, and Cardiff and Swansea are also being upgraded to 4G. Earlier this week the operator announced new entry-level 4G tariffs and a new £99 4G smartphone, the Kestrel.
EE CEO Olaf Swantee (pictured) said: ‘Our 4G rollout is continuing at an industry-leading pace, reaching more and more people in places right across the UK. We're connecting major towns to make sure that consumers, commuters and businesses have 4G where they live and where they work. As well as expanding our 4G network into new areas, our teams are switching on new 4G sites in our existing 4G cities and towns to make the EE network experience even better.’
