4G EE comes to 12 more places in the UK

Formerly Everything Everywhere, now the 4G EE mobile phone network has made public that a dozen more towns across the UK can access its 4G network.

These are said to be Ashton-under-Lyne, Chatham, Gillingham, High Wycombe, Merthyr Tydfil, Oldham, Oxford, Rochester, Runcorn, Sale, Stafford and Wigan.

That takes the grand total up to 74 towns and cities – with speeds reaching 40Mbps.

There are now more than 50 per cent of the UK covered with the high-speed EE network and in just seven months, where it aims to have 98 per cent coverage by the end of 2014.

The pace of our 4G network roll out continues to keep us at the forefront of the UK mobile market. Just seven months after launch, we’ve covered millions of consumers and businesses with one of the fastest mobile networks in the world”, said Olaf Swantee, Chief Executive Officer, EE.

EE has recently reported it had 318,000 4G customers, where it was still on target to reach one million – by the end of this year.

Aiding this is the news that it is doubling its network speeds to 80Mbps.

This happens this summertime and in Birmingham, Bristol, Cardiff, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Leeds, Liverpool, London, Manchester and Sheffield.

The network will also be testing out a 300Mbps network later in the year, which will hope to further the 4G cause.
