As we head into the festive season, EE is delivering an early Christmas present to many of its subscribers with another round of 4G LTE expansions. It launches today officially in a select number of new locations, but EE is promising a total of 29 to be turned on fully before Christmas.

Going live today is Bath, Bournemouth, Brighton, Cambridge, Darlington, Newcastle-under-Lyme, Northampton, Poole Portsmouth and Redcar. Then, the remaining locations to go live before Christmas are Aberdeen, Braintree, Cheltenham, Chester, Dundee, Durham, Exeter, Gloucester, Grimsby, Ipswich, Lincoln, Middlesbrough, Norwich, Peterborough, Plymouth, Stoke-on-Trent, Swansea, Swindon and York.

Finally, I'm in one of those lucky locations – albeit it the before Christmas crowd – and while the switch on isn't yet official, EE is obviously testing these areas right now. I'm picking up some of the 4G LTE signal, and have been for a week or so now, and seeing some download speeds of around 27Mbps.

Have you recently got EE 4G LTE for the first time? How are you finding it?
