EE expands 4G coverage to another 9 towns and cities

EE is today continuing its 4G/LTE coverage rollout to a further 9 towns and cities across the UK, which brings the total number of super-fast 4G coverage areas up to 27.

EE has announced the updates today, which will bring the service to several smaller cites and large towns across the UK including:

  • Amersham
  • Bolton
  • Chelmsford
  • Hemel Hempstead
  • Southend-on-Sea
  • Stockport
  • Sunderland
  • Sutton Coldfield
  • Wolverhampton

All of these will have access to EE’s 4G service which the company claims will mean that 45 per cent of the UK population is now covered by the LTE service, if you count the other 18 areas that are already covered.

“As the first operator to bring 4G to the UK, it is important that we make it accessible to as much of the population as possible, as quickly as possible,” said Olaf Swantee, CEO of EE. “To be ahead of schedule and covering approximately 45 per cent of the population within just 90 days of the launch is a great achievement for our network team.”

EE is still the only network to be able to offer 4G coverage but this will be changing very soon as Ofcom is currently auctioning off two spectrum bands set aside for new 4G mobile services, which includes bids from rivals such as O2, Vodafone and Three.

If you are in any of the areas above on T-Mobile, Orange or EE you will see a considerable signal boost from today onwards!
