EE has announced that its superfast 4G mobile network is now available in 105 towns and cities in the UK.

The coverage is equal to 60 percent of the population, according to the telecoms provider. EE, currently the UK’s only LTE network in operation, has previously said that it was on track to reach its target of one million 4G customers by the end of the year.

It made the announcement ahead of tomorrow’s launch of 4G networks by rivals Vodafone and O2.

EE launched its 4G network in October 2012, and is expanding the service this month to towns including Milton Keynes, Tunbridge Wells, Sunderland, Walsall and Wolverhampton.

It named Accrington in Lancashire as the 100th town to be covered by the superfast network.  

Steven Day, chief of brand and communications at EE, said: “Our 4G network is just 10 months old and we’re delighted to have reached the 100 milestone so quickly.”

Other towns being connected this month include Ashford, Bicester, Guildford, Redhill, Sevenoaks, Woking, Sutton Coldfield and West Bromwich.

Meanwhile, EE is upgrading existing 4G networks in 20 UK cities, including London, Manchester, Birmingham and Newcastle, to offer doubled speed, with average speeds of 24-30Mbps.
