EE has announced plans to further extend its super-fast mobile broadband network in the run-up to Christmas.

The broadband provider has revealed 29 more towns and cities will gain access to 4G connectivity before the turn of the year, taking the UK total to 160.

Ten of those have received a network upgrade this week - Bath, Bournemouth, Brighton, Cambridge, Darlington, Newcastle-under-Lyme, Northampton, Poole, Portsmouth and Redcar.

"These places will now benefit from super-fast internet access on mobiles, tablets and laptops, helping people and businesses to do more online, on the go, whether that’s working or enjoying, social media, music and videos," EE stated.

And by Christmas, consumers and businesses in Aberdeen, Braintree, Cheltenham, Chester, Dundee, Durham, Exeter, Gloucester, Grimsby, Ipswich, Lincoln, Middlesbrough, Norwich, Peterborough, Plymouth, Stoke-on-Trent, Swansea, Swindon and York will also be able to benefit from 4G.

Olaf Swantee, Chief Executive Officer at EE, said that from online banking and mobile shopping to streaming music and using maps, 4G is enabling people to do "more of their favourite things quickly and easily on the go".

"Tablets on 4GEE are going to be a very popular present this Christmas as people across the UK continue to embrace mobile living and we make the super-fast service available in even more places," he stated.

EE has been rolling out 4G mobile broadband at some pace over the last 13 months, having only launched its next-generation network in October 2012.

As well as continuing to increase the coverage of its 4G network, EE is committed to boosting the download and upload speeds available to dongle and tablet users.

The firm has rolled out double-speed 4G services in 20 UK cities to date - Belfast, Birmingham, Bristol, Cardiff, Derby, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Leeds, Liverpool, London, Manchester, Newcastle, Nottingham, Sheffield, Southampton, Sunderland, Sutton Coldfield, Walsall, West Bromwich and Wolverhampton.
