27 towns and cities across the UK now receiving superfast technology.

EE has switched on 4G technology in another nine town across the UK, taking the total number of towns and cities receiving the superfast service to 27.

4G was launched in the UK 90 days ago, with Amersham, Bolton, Chelmsford, Hemel Hempstead, Southend-on-Sea, Stockport, Sunderland, Sutton Coldfield and Wolverhampton becoming the latest towns to benefit from its services.

Olaf Swantee, chief executive officer, EE, said: “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. To be ahead of schedule and covering approximately 45% of the population within just 90 days of the launch is a great achievement for our network team. We continue to bring superfast mobile to more and more people, whether they’re using their devices outdoors or in their homes and offices, and to increase the speed and consistency of our 4G and 3G network across the UK.”

In addition to bringing 4G to new areas, EE has also said that it will continue to increase the network density of its 4G offering to provide users with consistent, superfast access to 4G when travelling and commuting to work.
