Super fast 4G mobile broadband from EE will be available to over half the population of the UK by the middle of the year, the network operator has revealed.
EE announced today it will extend coverage to a further 27 towns by June. This will mean around 55 per cent of UK residents will be able to sign up for 4G.
Towns in line for 4G are Aldershot, Ashford, Basildon, Basingstoke, Blackpool, Bracknell, Camberley, Colchester, Crawley, Farnborough, Guildford, Horsham, Huddersfield and Leatherhead.
Maidstone, Milton Keynes are also scheduled to join the 4G club in June, as are Oldham, Oxford, Redhill, Reigate, Sevenoaks, Stevenage, Tonbridge, Royal Tunbridge Wells, Warrington, Wigan and Woking.
Olaf Swantee, Chief Executive Officer, EE, said: "Our business customers want a 4G network that covers the markets in which they operate, and that is exactly what we are building for them – and at a phenomenal rate.
“We're set to cover more than half of the UK population by summer, staying ahead of the schedule that we set for ourselves at launch, and continuing to demonstrate the amazing value of 4G mobile to many organisations with different challenges and different needs."
Earlier this week, EE announced it had rolled out 4G to nine more towns, namely Bolton, Chelmsford, Southend-on-Sea, Sunderland, Sutton Coldfield, Amersham, Stockport, Wolverhampton and Hemel Hempstead.
