The UK's only current 4G LTE provider, EE, has announced the switch on in another 12 towns across the country beginning from today. This is of course fantastic news to anyone in the affected areas with an iPhone 5, or LTE capable iPad or iPad Mini using the EE network.
EE customers in Aylesbury, Berkhamsted, Billericay, Blackpool, Brentwood, Dewsbury, Huddersfield, Lytham St Annes, Marlow, Pontefract, Thame and Windsor are now able to put to use LTE for the very first time. The latest additions brings the total number of towns and cities supported by EE LTE to 62, which the carrier says now provides it with a 50% coverage of the UK population.
Furthermore, EE is committed to adding a further 18 locations to the list by the end of June, with a 70% population coverage aimed for by the end of 2013. Rival carriers are expected to begin their own LTE offerings later this year, utilising spectrum gained through the recent auctions.
