4G from EE now available in 200 UK towns and cities

EE reaches 72% UK population coverage

The Welsh town of Rhyl has become the 200th town or city in the UK to receive 4G mobile phone service from EE.

This brings the network’s coverage to 72% of the UK population.

Olaf Swantee, CEO of EE, said “Today we switch on our 200th 4G town just 18 months after pioneering the service in the UK. We now have over 2 million customers using superfast 4G. That’s the fastest rollout and uptake of any technology in Britain, and means that the UK’s mobile digital infrastructure is now ahead of many other nations. We’re proud to have been the driving force that made that happen, but we won’t stop there. Our continued drive to deliver 4G to more of the UK means that our customers have access to by far the biggest network in the country. Hitting this landmark highlights that 4G from EE is available wherever people need it - at home, at work, or enjoying the sunshine on the beach in Rhyl, our 200th town.”

EE’s 4G service was launched in October 2012. Last month, the network introduced its first own-brand smartphone and a 4G tariff costing just £13.99 per month. In March it was ranked as the best-performing mobile network in the UK by RootMetrics.
