EE's 4G mobile broadband network now covers 75 per cent of the UK population, the service provider has revealed.

The firm has launched next-generation mobile services in another 13 large towns this week, bringing 4G to another 300,000 people.

This means three-quarters of the UK population can access super-fast mobile broadband on their tablets, dongles and smartphones.

Buckingham, Burntwood, Chesham, Chesterfield, Dalkeith, Glossop, Hertford, Rugeley, Sheerness, Thornaby-on-Tees, Ware, Wickford and Witney are the latest towns to gain EE 4G coverage.

The MP for Witney - Prime Minister David Cameron - said the arrival of EE's 4G mobile services is "a huge boost for local companies and people living in the area".

"Now the latest generation of mobile technology has arrived, Witney is now an area where it is even more attractive to live, to work and to do business," he stated.

"The arrival of 4G makes this part of Oxfordshire one of the best connected areas in the UK.”

Olaf Swantee, Chief Executive Officer at EE, claimed that 4G is now "a well-known and well understood technology", with businesses and communities increasingly demanding coverage due to the "significant economic benefit" it offers.

He added that EE's fast, nationwide rollout is continuing, with hundreds of new sites being switched on every month.

This is bringing 4G to more places, giving many people a fast broadband experience for the very first time, Mr Swantee stated.

As of this week, EE has launched 4G mobile broadband in 263 major towns and cities, and over 2,500 villages and small towns, across the UK.

In addition, double-speed 4G is available in 20 key urban locations: Belfast, Birmingham, Bristol, Cardiff, Derby, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Leeds, Liverpool, London, Manchester, Newcastle, Nottingham, Sheffield, Southampton, Sunderland, Sutton Coldfield, Walsall, West Bromwich and Wolverhampton.
