In a press release, network operator EE announced that it has spread its 4GEE network to “nine more towns and cities”. It said, “EE, the UK’s most advanced digital communications company, today announced that 4G is available in nine new towns and cities across the UK, bringing the total number of towns and cities covered by superfast 4GEE mobile technology to 37, just four months after the launch of the service.
“Today, 4G is being switched on in Barnsley, Chorley, Coventry, Newport, Preston, Rotherham, Telford, Walsall and Watford as roll out continues to progress ahead of schedule. 4G from EE, the first and only 4G network in the UK, covers the homes and businesses of more than 45% of the UK population. By summer 2013 the network will be in at least 72 towns and cities as well as much of the suburban and rural areas that surround them, reaching well over half of people in the UK.”
Devices that can connect to EE’s 4G data include the HTC One, Blackberry Z10, iPad Mini, Samsung Galaxy S3 LTE, and the Apple iPhone 5.
Olaf Swantee, EE CEO, said, “We’re committed to making the UK’s first 4G service available to as many people, as quickly as possible. We’re setting the pace for the delivery of 4G in the UK, and it’s a great achievement for our engineering teams to be able to launch in another nine towns this month, enabling more and more consumers and businesses to take advantage of superfast mobile internet.”
It’s just a shame EE refuses to include unlimited 4G data plans.
