Everything Everywhere is continuing its expansion of the country's first (and, for now, only) 4G LTE network with one of the UK's most rural areas. The network today announced plans to make high-speed 4G available for homes and businesses across much of the Northern Fells, Cumbria for the first time.
"Using our dedication to innovation and engineering excellence, we are overcoming the challenges of delivering rural connectivity to launch a 4G mobile broadband service in Cumbria," said Olaf Swantee, Chief Executive Officer, EE. "This is yet another big step in advancing digital communications in the UK. We’re offering one of the fastest mobile networks in the world, and are pioneering how to make superfast broadband available to homes and businesses that currently have little or no connectivity."
The launch will offer many residents access to average upload and download speeds between 8-12Mbps, with max speeds exceeding 20Mbps. Northern Fells isn't the only area with 4G on the horizon. Back in February, EE announced that it would rolling out 4G coverage in Aldershot, Ashford, Basildon, Basingstoke, Blackpool, Bracknell, Camberley, Colchester, Crawley, Farnborough, Guildford, Horsham, Huddersfield, Leatherhead, Maidstone, Milton Keynes, Oldham, Oxford, Redhill, Reigate, Sevenoaks, Stevenage, Tonbridge, Royal Tunbridge Wells, Warrington, Wigan and Woking.
