31 Mar 2014

EE, the UK’s largest mobile network operator in terms of subscribers, has announced the launch of 4G services in twelve more towns, bringing the total number of locations covered by its network to 187. Under the latest phase of expansion, the cellco’s LTE-based services are now available in Antrim, Coleraine and Newtownabbey in Northern Ireland; Bridgend and Pontypool in Wales; Livingstone in Scotland; and Burnley, Leigh, Macclesfield, Nuneaton, Sittingbourne and Tamworth in England. In addition, the operator has also said that ‘key routes’ between Edinburgh and Glasgow, and Cardiff and Swansea are also being upgraded to 4G to meet the growing demand for superfast connectivity on the move.

Commenting on the network deployment, EE chief executive officer Olaf Swantee, noted: ‘Our 4G rollout is continuing at an industry-leading pace, reaching more and more people in places right across the UK … As well as expanding our 4G network into new areas, our teams are switching on new 4G sites in our existing 4G cities and towns to make the EE network experience even better.’
