The UK's first (and, for now, only) 4G LTE network has announced plans to expand its 4G LTE coverage for 27 more towns in the United Kingdom. This will bring the coverage to a total 65 UK towns and cities across the nation.
"Our business customers want a 4G network that covers the markets in which they operate, and that is exactly what we are building for them – and at a phenomenal rate," said Olaf Swantee, Chief Executive Officer, EE. "We're set to cover more than half of the UK population by Summer, staying ahead of the schedule that we set for ourselves at launch, and continuing to demonstrate the amazing value of 4G mobile to many organisations with different challenges and different needs."
Starting in April, EE will start 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.
According to EE, its 4G network currently covers 45 percent of the UK population. This figure is expected to grow to 55-percent by summer.
