EE announces another round of 4G LTE expansions before Christmas

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?
