EE already offers 4G in the major cities of the UK however with flagship handsets like the iPhone 5 and the Galaxy S3 LTE the network is looking to expand quickly

 

EE 4G have announced a further 17 towns and cities to have 4G coverage switched on by March 2013 giving EE iPhone 5 owners more locations to get superfast mobile internet.

Launching back in October with an initial ten cities gaining the super-fast 4G service, EE will continue to work on its network in the launch cities by improving speed and reach in metropolitan areas.

In the first three months of 2013 4G will go live in Bradford, Chelmsford, Coventry, Doncaster, Dudley, Leicester, Luton, Newport, Reading, Rotherham, St Albans, Sunderland, Sutton Coldfield, Walsall, Watford, West Bromwich and Wolverhampton.

EE 4G UK features


4G runs approximately five times faster than the current 3G networks with the ability to download large email attachments, watch live TV on-the-go without buffering and high quality video calls being just some of the perks of the new system, EE hope to reach 98% of the UK by the end of 2014.

Commenting on the news that EE are building out their 4G network is Thomas Wehmeier from Informa Telecoms & Media who believes that, “The early experience on EE's network has been almost widely praised by early adopters - a fact supported by positive independent test results - but the real challenge for EE will come when its network starts to fill.”

EE plan to expand to Belfast, Hull, Maidenhead and Slough before 2013, with a range of high-end handsets already offering 4G such as the Samsung Galaxy S3 LTE and the Huawei Ascend P1 LTE EE will be hoping to get a head start over the other UK networks which will be rolling it out next year.

These news plans will see approximately four million more people and a total of 35 towns and cities across the UK receiving the 4G treatment.
