EE has announced that another 14 towns have been added to its 4G network, taking the total number of locations on the superfast service to 131 across the UK.
The new locations covered are: Benfleet, Caerphilly, Caldicot, Canvey Island, Carlisle, Chepstow, Cwmbran, Grays, Harlow, Hatfield, Kenilworth, Rayleigh, Southport and Worksop.
EE chief executive Olaf Swantee said the new locations showed that the firm is continuing to make its network available to as many users as possible.
“One year on from our launch and we’re now bringing 4G to even more places, and making it available to even more people,” he said.
Our 4G coverage continues to grow all around the country, and our new plans give consumers and businesses more flexibility and choice in how they access superfast mobile.”
The addition of more locations comes as EE prepares to launch pay as you go 4G services for the first time. EE has enjoyed almost a year's head start in the market as it was allowed by Ofcom to re-use some of its existing spectrum instead of having to bid for a new allocation to deliver 4G services.
Since then it has added 1.2 million customers to its network and over 3,000 business customers, although O2 and Vodafone are rushing to close the gap with several major locations already covered with their services such as Nottingham, Coventry and Birmingham.
Despite this, EE revealed last week that its overall user base has actually fallen over recent months, although it still stands at an siezable 27.4 million.
The increased coverage will also be welcome by Ofcom which sees 4G as a possible solution to poor mobile coverage on many of the UK's major road routes.
