In addition, EE say they are working hard to improve the density of coverage in all areas where 4G is currently available, as well as rolling out the service to other regions in the coming months.
“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, Chief Executive Officer at EE. “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 are using their devices outdoors or in their homes and offices, and to increase the speed of our 4G and 3G network across the UK.”
The EE 4G service is now available in 27 regions across the UK, with a growing number of 4G handsets available, including the iPhone 5, Samsung Galaxy S3 LTE, Nokia Lumia 920 and the recently launched BlackBerry Z10 which is available from today.
