EE Switches On Its 4G LTE Service In 12 New Locations


EE, the U.K.’s current largest 4G network, has announced that it has recently expanded its rapidly-growing LTE service to cover an additional 12 towns in the United Kingdom. This expansion was disclosed in a press release on the operators website, in which EE claims its 4G service now covers more than 80% of the U.K’s population.

In addition to coverage in these 12 new locations, EE also announced that it has strengthened the quality of its LTE service in areas surrounding Edinburgh, Glasgow, Cardiff and Swansea.

The new towns that will start to receive the 4G LTE service starting today, include:

  • Antrim
  • Bridgend
  • Burnley
  • Coleraine
  • Leigh
  • Livingston
  • Macclesfield
  • Newtownabbey
  • Nuneaton
  • Pontypool
  • Sittingbourne
  • Tamworth

Back in September, 2013, EE launched its first and most unique trade-in program, dubbed Swap, which enables current customers to trade in their 4G-enabled smartphone in return for a shiny new one, providing they’re at least 6 months into their 18 or 24 month contract.

So, if you’re contemplating signing up to one of EE’s ultra-fast plans, there has never been a better time to do so, considering the amount of flagship smartphones that are scheduled to launch shortly, including the Galaxy S5.

If you’re in one of EE’s 4G LTE compatible locations, be sure to give the operator a call today to upgrade – I promise, you won’t be disappointed!
