EE has brought its 4G mobile broadband network to 12 more towns around the UK.

Consumers and businesses in 62 locations can now access super-fast mobile services after the service was turned on in Aylesbury, Berkhamsted, Billericay, Blackpool, Brentwood, Dewsbury, Huddersfield, Lytham St Annes, Marlow, Pontefract, Thame and Windsor.

The firm said its 4G rollout - which uses spectrum in the 1,800MHz frequency band - continues to progress ahead of schedule.

EE now covers the homes and businesses of more than 50 per cent of the UK population, with another 18 towns and cities set to come online by June 2013.

Olaf Swantee, Chief Executive Officer at EE, said the rollout of the UK's first 4G mobile network is "continuing at a great pace".

"We are connecting people right across the UK to one of the fastest mobile networks in the world, as quickly as possible," he stated.

"Consumers and businesses in the UK use mobile internet more than any other market, and rely on it for long commutes - there is a demand for the best mobile services, and we’re working to meet that demand."

Mr Swantee said EE is committed to rolling out 4G to 98 per cent of the population by the end of 2014.

This includes the double-speed 4G service that EE will launch in the summer, he stated.

The broadband provider recently announced that 318,000 customers signed up for 4G between October 2012 and March 2013.

EE has set itself a target of more than one million customers by the end of the year.
