Mobile provider EE in the UK has this week announced that they have rollout of 4G LTE across the UK to its 200th town, providing 4G users with a coverage across the UK of 72 percent. The latest town to be added to the ever growing list is Rhyl in Wales, together with 12 other locations now also covered by 4G EE.
4G from EE goes live today in: Armadale, Bishop Auckland, Brighouse, Cumbernauld, Hamilton Kirkintilloch, Larne, Newry, Peterlee, Staines, Stockton-on-Tees, Rhyl and Washington. Olaf Swantee, CEO of EE explained :
“Today we switch on our 200th 4G town just 18 months after pioneering the service in the UK. We now have over 2 million customers using superfast 4G. That’s the fastest rollout and uptake of any technology in Britain, and means that the UK’s mobile digital infrastructure is now ahead of many other nations. We’re proud to have been the driving force that made that happen, but we won’t stop there.
Our continued drive to deliver 4G to more of the UK means that our customers have access to by far the biggest network in the country. Hitting this landmark highlights that 4G from EE is available wherever people need it – at home, at work, or enjoying the sunshine on the beach in Rhyl, our 200th town”
4GEE is available from £13.99 and a new price plan was launched last month alongside the first ever EE-branded smartphone – the EE Kestrel, which is free on plans from £13.99, or for just £99 on 4GEE Pay As You Go.
