EE upgrades a further 18 towns in the UK to blinding 4G speeds

EE today announced the mobile network has launched 4G in 18 new towns across the UK, including Sandhurst. This takes the total number of major towns and cities with LTE connectivity through the company to 281 – reported to be over 75 percent of the UK population.

Sandhurst is the home of the Royal Military Academy, located in Berkshire. Hitting 75 percent of the UK population is quite the milestone, considering EE only launched LTE two years ago. Check the press release below for more details. Are you enjoying EE 4G in your area?

Wednesday 1st October, 2014 – EE is expanding its 4G network across the UK to reach another 18 large towns in all four corners of the UK – from Helensburgh in Scotland to Holywood in Northern Ireland, and Prestatyn in Wales to Abingdon in England. The latest stage of the roll out brings the number of large towns and cities covered to 281, and more than 75% of the population.

With 4G also being switched on in Sandhurst, Sergeant Major better keep his eyes peeled. Recruits at the Royal Military Academy (RMA) can now enjoy all the benefits of 4G, whether uploading selfies on the sly or ditching the Ordinance Survey in favour of seamless Google Maps.

To mark the next phase of 4GEE roll-out, EE commissioned photography with a Price Harry lookalike, Roddy Walker. Prince Harry is one of the most well-known RMA Sandhurst graduates in recent years (images available here).

Even 'His Royal Highness' can't resist some superfast web browsing

Spencer McHugh, Director of Brand at EE, said: "Our ongoing 4G roll out means that our customers have access to by far the biggest network in the country. Whether you're at work or on the go, 4GEE lets you do so much more. From superfast web browsing to streaming HD video, even the most disciplined people won't be able to resist getting on their mobile!"

4G from EE goes live today in: Abingdon, Ashton-In-Makerfield, Brownhills, Corringham, Faversham, Fleetwood, Formby, Hebburn, Helensburgh, Hoddesdon, Holywood, Hythe, Prestatyn, Sandhurst, Spennymoor, Tilbury, Waltham Abbey and Wombourne.
