EE Brings 4G LTE Coverage To An Additional 11 Towns Across The U.K.


EE has today announced that its speedy 4G LTE network is now available in an additional 11 towns across the United Kingdom. EE now covers 85 towns and cities, reaching more than 55% of the U.K. population just eight months after its 4G LTE network first launched.

Those towns receiving EE’s 4G network today include Aldershot, Basildon, Basingstoke, Bracknell, Hitchin, Horsham, Leatherhead, Letchworth, Stevenage, Warrington, and Weston-super-Mare.

“Today’s launch sees us continue to extend the reach of superfast 4G mobile to more consumers and businesses across the UK, from Warrington to Weston-super-Mare,” said EE CEO Olaf Swantee.

“With double-speed 4G launching this summer, as well as Shared 4GEE plans and Pay-As-You-Go 4G Mobile Broadband, we continue to innovate and enable the best possible digital experience for our customers.”

EE hopes to reach 98% of the U.K. population by the end of 2014. It’s currently the only carrier offering 4G services in the U.K., but that will change in the coming months when O2, Vodafone, and Three launch their 4G networks for the first time.
