4G finally set to be introduced to over half the country by this summer

EE 4GIt has been a heavily covered topic over the past year, especially with the announcement of Orange and T-Mobile’s merge and the release of the latest smartphones, yes 4G. Although it was being hyped as the fastest and best form of access to a network, the problem still remained that not enough people lived in areas, which could use or even access the service.

Well now EE the U.K.’s first – and still, its only – 4G network has made plans to stretch the system across 55% of the population and continuing to grow its footprint. The expansion will introduce the network to 27 new towns and cities between April and June, which you can see at the bottom of this post.

Other rival companies are currently in the process of bidding for spectrum to build their own 4G networks, including the likes of O2 and Vodafone, however this is unlikely to be processed until Spring/Summer giving EE plenty of time to take a stake on the market.

EE has shied away from announcing official numbers of sign-ups its had for 4GEE although many large organisations including Gatwick Airport, Microsoft, Sony Music and others have all revealed that the network is integrated with their companies.

The announced towns and cities that are set to get the 4G network by the summer are:

Aldershot, Ashford, Basildon, Basingstoke, Blackpool, Bracknell, Camberley, Colchester, Crawley, Farnborough, Guilford, Horsham, Huddersfield, Leatherhead, Maidstone, Milton Keynes, Oldham, Oxford, Redhill, Reigate, Sevenoaks, Stevenage, Tonbridge, Royal Tunbridge Wells, Warrington, Wigan and Woking.
