It seems like ages since EE first launched its 4G LTE network in the UK, and yet, it’s only been just over a year since its “Superfast” speeds were made available in the first handful of cities. From today, it’s available in another 10 cities, bringing the total so far to 141. A “superfast” roll-out, I’m sure you’ll agree.
- 4G from EE launching today in Bath, Bournemouth, Brighton, Cambridge, Darlington, Newcastle-under-Lyme, Northampton, Poole, Portsmouth and Redcar
- 19 more UK towns and cities to be fully covered by Christmas, giving people in 160 places across the UK access to superfast 4GEE mobile internet
By Christmas the network will also roll-out in Aberdeen, Braintree, Cheltenham, Chester, Dundee, Durham, Exeter, Gloucester, Grimsby, Ipswich, Lincoln, Middlesbrough, Norwich, Peterborough, Plymouth, Stoke-on-Trent, Swansea, Swindon and York. That’ll take the list up to an incredible 160 locations, making it the fastest LTE rollout in Europe. That’s 0-60% of the population in little over 13 months. Outstanding. And, it’s getting cheaper to hop onboard too. On pay as you go, you can get 1GB of 4G data for just £10 including 2,014 minutes call time. On pay monthly, deals (with phones) are available from £18.99 per month.
What’s interesting, is that in all the cities with 4G available, my home city of Carlisle isn’t mentioned and isn’t officially live. And yet, I’ve seen it show up on my phone, and it shows up on the coverage checker map. Weird.
UK dwellers, let us know if you’ve used “4GEE” yet and if you think it’s as awesome as EE would like us to think.
