EE has added another 12 locations to its 4G network as it rushes to hook up as many locations across the UK before rivals O2 and Vodafone come online.
Some of the newest locations that are now online include Blackpool (pictured above), Windsor and Pontefract in Yorkshire, bringing the total number of locations on the network to 62 since it went live in October 2012.
EE aims to have 80 locations online by the end of June and cover 70 percent of the UK with its network by the end of 2013. The firm recently announced its intention to offer double speed services in key locations and this will be extended throughout 2014.
“Our rollout of the country’s first 4G mobile network is continuing at a great pace to ensure that we are connecting people right across the UK to one of the fastest mobile networks in the world, as quickly as possible,” said chief executive of EE Olaf Swantee.
“We’re committed to rolling out 4G to 98 percent of the population by the end of 2014, and that includes the double-speed 4G that will launch this summer.”
The other locations to come online are Aylesbury, Berkhamsted, Billericay, Brentwood, Dewsbury, Huddersfield, Lytham St Annes, Marlow and Thame.
Earlier this month EE announced that it has 318,000 customers using its 4G services and that it is aiming to have one million signed up by the end of the year. O2 and Vodafone are expected to have 4G services online by the summer and will be hoping to catch up with EE as quickly as possible.
