Latest LTE service expansion makes a total of 37 locations.

EE has been relentless with the promotion of its 4G services, hiring Kevin Bacon as the face of the brand, while regularly adding the spectrum to new cities.

Today, the operator has introduced 4G into nine towns, including: Barnsley, Chorley, Coventry, Newport, Preston, Rotherham, Telford, Walsall and Watford. The network was launched just four months ago, and EE now boasts a reach in 37 locations around the UK.

The goal is to reach at least 72 towns and cities by this summer, while EE claims to support more than 45 per cent of Brits at present.

Olaf Swantee, CEO of EE, said: "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."
