EE has announced that following the addition of 13 large towns to its 4G network the service now covers three quarters of the UK. The most recent roll-out which EE says will serve 300,000 more people also includes the Prime Minister’s constituency of Witney, Oxfordshire.
Olaf Swantee, EE CEO, said: “4G is now a well-known and well understood technology, with businesses and communities increasingly demanding 4G coverage because they see the significant economic benefit. Our fast, nationwide rollout continues, with hundreds of new sites being switched on every month to bring 4G to more places, often giving people a fast broadband experience for the very first time.”
David Cameron, Prime Minister and MP for Witney, said: “The arrival of EE’s 4G mobile services in Witney is a huge boost for local companies and people living in the area. Now the latest generation of mobile technology has arrived, Witney is now an area where it is even more attractive to live, to work and to do business. The arrival of 4G makes this part of Oxfordshire one of the best connected areas in the UK.”
Other towns where EE has brought 4G to include: Buckingham, Burntwood, Chesham, Chesterfield, Dalkeith (Scotland), Glossop, Hertford, Rugeley, Sheerness, Thornaby-on-Tees, Ware, Wickford and Witney.
