As the only network currently offering 4G mobile in the UK, EE (formerly Everything Everywhere) has been entirely forthcoming with a seemingly endless array of stats and that.
Today we’re hearing that EE has doubled its customer base in just three months, while a further 10 cities have had the big 4G switch set to ON. Furthermore, three cities have been added to the double speed list. Busy busy.
On its second quarter earnings call, EE revealed that it’s now welcomed 687,000 4G subscribers, more than double the 318,000 figure from Q1. As such, the network is on track to exceed one million 4G subscribers before we hit space year 2014AD.
As for the new EE 4G towns, they are Altrincham, Bedford, Camberley, Crawley, Farnborough, Farnham, Maidstone, Rochdale, Tonbridge and Welwyn Garden City.
In addition, the latest EE double speed 4G cities are Belfast, Newcastle and Southampton. EE claims that its double speed service makes it the world's fastest mobile network.
Impressively, that brings EE’s 4G total to 95 towns and cities across the UK, with 15 receiving double speed. Not too shabby.
Of course, EE has had it easy for the past nine months or so, grabbing an Ofcom-approved head start on UK 4G. The road will inevitably get bumpier later in the year, however, just as soon as O2, Vodafone and Three can be bothered launching their 4G services.
