EE's 4G mobile broadband service is now available in 50 towns and cities across the UK, it has been announced.

The broadband provider - which launched super-fast mobile broadband in the 1,800MHz frequency band in October 2012 - has introduced 4G to another 13 locations this week.

From this week, homes and businesses in Bradford, Bingley, Doncaster, Dudley, Harpenden, Leicester, Lichfield, Loughborough, Luton, Reading, Shipley, St Albans and West Bromwich are able to take advantage of super-fast mobile broadband.

EE said its network now covers 50 per cent of the UK population, and this figure will approach 80 per cent as 30 more towns and cities go live during Q2 2013.

According to the company, 4G mobile broadband is around five times as fast as 3G - improving the online experience for dongle and tablet users.

EE noted that customers are seeing average speeds of more than 16Mb on its network, and peak speeds of 50Mb "on a frequent basis".

Olaf Swantee, Chief Executive Officer, EE, said his firm has reached two major milestones - 50 towns and cities, and 50 per cent of the population.

"We’re remaining ahead of our schedule to equip UK consumers and businesses with 4G," he stated.

"Our customers are at the heart of our rollout and we are working hard to deliver 4G to 70 per cent of the UK population by the end of this year, and 98 per cent of the population by the end of 2014.

Last week, EE announced plans to deliver 4G services in the Northern Fells area of Cumbria - a rural area with poor levels of connectivity at present.
