EE today claimed that its 4G network is available to three quarters of the UK population, including those living in Prime Minister David Cameron’s constituency of Witney, in Oxfordshire.
Cameron’s constituency was today named as one of 13 new towns and villages to be covered by EE’s 4G network.
EE also switched on its 4G network in: Buckingham, Burntwood, Chesham, Chesterfield, Dalkeith (Scotland), Glossop, Hertford, Rugeley, Sheerness, Thornaby-on-Tees, Ware and Wickford.
The mobile operator’s 4G network is now available in 263 major towns and cities, and over 2,500 villages and small towns.
Cameron described the arrival of 4G in Witney as a "huge boost" for local companies and people living in the area.
EE CEO Olaf Swantee said: “4G is now a well-known and well understood technology, with businesses and communities increasingly demanding 4G coverage because they see the significant economic benefit. Our fast, nationwide rollout continues, with hundreds of new sites being switched on every month to bring 4G to more places, often giving people a fast broadband experience for the very first time.”
EE, ranked the UK’s leading mobile operator, was the first of the big four UK telecoms companies to offer 4G to its customers when it launched in 12 cities in October 2012.
