EE will switch on 4G mobile broadband in a further 17 towns and cities across the UK by March 2013, it has been announced.
The broadband provider will launch super-fast mobile services in in Bradford, Chelmsford, Coventry, Doncaster, Dudley, Leicester, Luton, Newport, Reading, Rotherham, St Albans, Sunderland, Sutton Coldfield, Walsall, Watford, West Bromwich and Wolverhampton.
This will bring 4G coverage to another four million people, the firm stated.
Last week, 4G was switched on in Derby, Newcastle and Nottingham, while services will launch in Belfast, Hull, Maidenhead and Slough by the end of 2012.
In addition, EE says network density is being rapidly increased in existing 4G launch cities, as it continues to improve broadband speeds and the quality of service.
Engineering work continues in each enabled area until the 4G coverage matches that of the EE 2G and 3G networks.
Olaf Swantee, Chief Executive Officer of EE, said that by the end of the first quarter of 2013, 4G will be available in 35 towns and cities across the UK.
This will make super-fast mobile services accessible to thousands more customers and businesses every day, he stated.
"We’re delighted with the progress of the 4G rollout – we are improving the network every day, delivering super-fast mobile to more and more people right across metropolitan areas, whether they’re using their devices outdoors or in their homes and offices," Mr Swantee added.
"This has struck a chord with businesses in particular, with great demand being seen. We’re delighted to already be powering large, medium and small businesses with 4G."
