EE has revealed that it now has 7.7 million customers on its 4G network, a notable increase on the goal of six million customers set for itself by the end of 2014.
This growth included the addition of 1.7 million customers in the last two months of 2014, and the continued expansion of its 4G network to 510 towns and cities and over 4,000 villages.
EE claimed that this brings its coverage to 80 percent of the population, which should rise to 98 percent by the end of 2015.
Some of the recent new locations included Hastings, Worthing, Worcester, Scunthorpe, Crewe, Rugby, Stratford-upon-Avon, Bangor and Llandudno.
EE also said that it is upping its focus on rural village coverage. The company added 1,000 small towns and villages over the end of 2014, taking the total to 3,894.
Elvanfoot (pictured), a village of 52 residents in South Lanarkshire, is the smallest community now benefitting from 4G.
EE said that the busiest day in terms of upload traffic in the past year was New Year's Eve, as people rushed to put photos on social media sites such as Facebook and share messages over WhatsApp.
4G+ will provide speeds as high as 300Mbps to those with the relevant 'Cat 6' devices, such as the iPhone 6, Samsung Galaxy S5 and Galaxy Note 4.
EE's growing 4G user base will no doubt be music to the ears of BT as the telco begins the process of buying EE for £12.5bn.
The size of EE's 4G network in terms of customers and coverage was seen as a key benefit for BT over O2.
EE also has over 6,200 business users on its network, including MasterCard and Reading Council, as mobile connectivity becomes vital in the corporate world.
