EE already has expansive LTE coverage across the UK, but it’s continuing to roll out the superfast speeds to more towns and cities. The network has flipped the switch on 12 more cities, bringing the grand total to 117 markets – that’s 60% of the UK population, according to EE.
The new cities include Ashby-de-la-Zouch, Beaconsfield, Blackburn, Burton upon Trent, Coalville, Chester-le-Street, Fleet, Gerrards Cross, Halifax, Hinckley, Houghton-le-Spring, and Reigate.
O2 and Vodafone are also expanded their coverage to additional areas. LTE service for both networks will soon launch in Birmingham, Coventry, Leicester, Nottingham, and Sheffield. O2 now covers eight cities across the UK, with Vodafone serving six. Both carriers plan to enable LTE connectivity in five more areas before the end of the year.
