EE expands 4G LTE again, total now stands at 74 towns across the country

EE, the UK's only 4G LTE carrier has announced another round of expansions, taking their total coverage up to 74 towns across the country and over 50% population coverage. The latest list sees another 13 towns in various areas of the country supported by 4G LTE.

EE customers in Ashton-under-Lyne, Chatham, Gillingham, High Wycombe, Merthyr Tydfil, Oldham, Oxford, Rochester, Runcorn, Sale, Stafford and Wigan should now be seeing 4G LTE. This follows on from the announcement of their new, 30-day LTE SIM-only contracts that offer the chance to try 4G for themselves without the weight of a long contract.

These regular expansions from EE are good news for their customers, and we still wait on for their rivals to launch their own LTE networks. Recently Vodafone stated they were aiming for a September launch, in part through not wanting to launch 4G without the iPhone. The iPhone 5 will currently only support EE LTE in the UK.

So, anyone seeing LTE for the first time on their EE iPhone 5? What do you think of the speeds you're seeing?
