February 27, 2013

LTE_Outdoor_ManchesterEE, is continuing its roll out of 4G with the announcement today that 4G is available in nine new towns and cities across the UK, bringing the total number of towns and cities covered by their 4G network 37, just four months after the launch of the service.

EE are switching on 4G in Barnsley, Chorley, Coventry, Newport, Preston, Rotherham, Telford, Walsall and Watford and according to EE they are “ahead of schedule.” But as they haven’t released a roadmap how are we to know if they’re behind or ahead. We just have to trust them on this one.
Their 4G coverage is now up to 45% of the UK population, and by summer 2013 the network aims to be in at least 72 towns and cities as well as much of the suburban and rural areas that surround them, reaching well over half of people in the UK.

Olaf Swantee, Chief Executive Officer, EE, said of the roll out schedule: “We’re committed to making the UK’s first 4G service available to as many people, as quickly as possible. We’re setting the pace for the delivery of 4G in the UK, and it’s a great achievement for our engineering teams to be able to launch in another nine towns this month, enabling more and more consumers and businesses to take advantage of superfast mobile internet.”
late news, we take it all back there is a roadmap. Further to the 37 towns and cities 4GEE is already live in now, EE has committed to switching on the following 35 by June, bringing the total to 72 towns and cities: Aldershot, Ashford, Basildon, Basingstoke, Blackpool, Bradford, Bracknell, Camberley, Colchester, Crawley, Doncaster, Dudley, Farnborough, Guildford, Horsham, Huddersfield, Leatherhead, Leicester, Luton, Maidstone, Milton Keynes, Oldham, Oxford, Reading, Redhill, Reigate, Sevenoaks, St Albans, Stevenage, Tonbridge, Royal Tunbridge Wells, Warrington, West Bromwich, Wigan and Woking.
