Mobile operator EE has extended its coverage map to 187 UK towns and cities by adding 12 more towns.
Today’s upgrade notably improves service in Scotland and Wales, adding Bridgend and Pontypool in Wales; Livingstone in Scotland; Antrim, Coleraine and Newtownabbey in Northern Ireland; and Burnley, Leigh, Macclesfield, Nuneaton, Sittingbourne and Tamworth in England.
There’s also improved EE 4G along key road and rail routes between Edinburgh and Glasgow, and Cardiff and Swansea for travelling users.
Olaf Swantee, Chief Executive Officer, EE, said: “Our 4G rollout is continuing at an industry-leading pace, reaching more and more people in places right across the UK.
“We’re connecting major towns to make sure that consumers, commuters and businesses have 4G where they live and where they work.
“As well as expanding our 4G network into new areas, our teams are switching on new 4G sites in our existing 4G cities and towns to make the EE network experience even better.”
Earlier this week, EE launched a new price plan to make 4G available for £13.99/month, and added its first EE-branded smartphone – the EE Kestrel – free on contract from £13.99/month, or for £99 on 4GEE Pay As You Go.
