EE Announces next phase of 4G Roll Out

EE has now confirmed another 17 cities in the next phase of the 4G services roll out, and as well as a super-fast 4G service these locations will get an enhanced 3G service too.
When the network launched in October 2012 ten major cities had the 4G service with EE bringing the number to 16 by the end of 2012, and these latest locations will be going live by March 2013.

The next cities in the plan are Bradford, Chelmsford, Coventry, Doncaster, Dudley, Leicester, Luton, Newport, Reading, Rotherham, St Albans, Sunderland, Sutton Coldfield, Walsall, Watford, West Bromwich and Wolverhampton. 

So if you happen to be in one of these cities you can give 4G a try in March 2013 and if not EE has said they will have 98 percent coverage by the end of next year so you shouldn't have to wait too long.

As well as the 4G signal expansion EE has announced they will be improving the 3G signal in their coverage areas with 40 percent of the population covered by a DC-HSPA signal.

This speed offers speeds of up to 42Mbps, about half the speed of 4G, so it offers a decent back up if you move outside of the 4G signal area.

So the network expansion continues steadily and EE has also confirmed they will continue to improve their 4G signal in existing coverage area for better connection speeds if you are already on the network.

So have you given 4G a try? Are you living in a 4G area? If so, why not let us know on Facebook, Twitter or Google+?
