EE has started introducing ‘micro network’ technology that can provide mobile coverage to remote areas.
However, unlike rival services - such as Vodafone’s Open Sure Signal - the EE rural micro network solution doesn’t require a broadband connection. Instead, it links to the main network wirelessly.
There’ll be 676 million 4G LTE handsets shipped worldwide in 2015, according to new figures from ABI Research.
That’s an increase of 204 million units from this year.
