UK LTE MOBILE NETWORK EE announced plans today to double the number of cities that can access its 4G network by March 2013, as it further extends its head start over rival operators.
EE said that in the first three months of 2013 it will roll out its "superfast" 4G mobile connectivity in Bradford, Chelmsford, Coventry, Doncaster, Dudley, Leicester, Luton, Newport, Reading, Rotherham, St Albans, Sunderland, Sutton Coldfield, Walsall and Watford.
There's even better news for those who live in Belfast, Hull, Maidenhead and Slough, as EE will switch on 4G in these cities before the end of this year.
As well as bringing LTE to more cities, EE said it's planning to increase its network density, which should improve the speed and reach of its 4G nertwork.
EE CEO Olaf Swantee said, "By the end of the first quarter of 2013, 4G will be available in 35 towns and cities across the UK, making superfast mobile accessible to thousands more customers and businesses every day.
"We're delighted with the progress of the 4G rollout - we are improving the network every day, delivering superfast mobile to more and more people right across metropolitan areas, whether they're using their devices outdoors or in their homes and offices.
"This has struck a chord with businesses in particular, with great demand being seen. We're delighted to already be powering large, medium and small businesses with 4G." µ
