EE is expanding its 4G mobile data network to another 14 towns across the UK.
The latest towns covered include Mansfield, Swinton, Jarrow, Kirkby, Wishaw, Ilkeston, Castleford, Walton-On-Thames, Totton, Carrickfergus, Newton Abbot, Wimborne Minster, Ramsbottom and Dumbarton.
The total number of towns and cities covered by the gradual 4G rollout now stands at 229, said EE.
The further 4G rollout comes on the back of last week’s announcement that EE is investing £275 million in extending the reach of its voice services, using 4G and WiFi calling technology and upgrading 2G and 3G equipment, with a specific focus on rural areas.
Olaf Swantee, EE CEO, said: “We’re continuing to invest in bringing superfast 4G and the best quality phone calls to more places in all four corners of the UK. We are also upgrading as many 2G and 3G sites each month, and many of those are in rural areas where there is a real demand for voice and data services.”
