EE is to switch on double-speed 4G in 12 cities around the UK tomorrow (Thursday July 4th).
The broadband provider will offer broadband speeds of up to 150Mb in the chosen locations, while doubling average download capabilities to between 24Mb and 30Mb.
EE says the upgrade will give the UK a mobile broadband network that is "unequalled in Europe", faster than those in the US and Japan, and equal to the best in South Korea.
The firm said double-speed 4G from EE will provide an even better experience for customers when enjoying HD videos, sharing high resolution pictures, sending large files, multi-tasking, and tethering multiple devices.
Olaf Swantee, Chief Executive of EE, commented that the firm is "staying one step ahead" of its rivals with the launch of double-speed 4G.
“Our new double-speed 4G technology means that we have the biggest, fastest and best network in the UK, and now the equal fastest in the world," he stated.
"With our super-fast network, we have a unique opportunity to introduce a new era of customer-friendly pricing models based on speed, and we’ll be revealing further details of this later this year.”
