Anything EE 4G Can Do, Vodafone and O2 Can Attempt to Match With Coverage Expansion

By Gerald Lynch on at

EE announces 12 new 4G connected UK towns, but O2 and Vodafone can only manage the same five each. With all three networks battling it out for 4G supremacy, EE's year-long head-start over the competition is really beginning to show in terms of established infrastructure.

4G-ready Vodafone customers in Birmingham, Coventry, Leicester, Nottingham and Sheffield will have the option to go superfast today, while O2 customers in those towns will get the 4G green-light tomorrow. Still a few months to go though until Three's 4G network launches though and that's when things will get really interesting; it's promising to deliver its service for free.
