4G Fails to Boost EE Subscriber Numbers

By Gary Cutlack on at

It looks like EE's much-hyped 4G network has failed to capture the hearts, minds and 24-month contracts of the nation, with its latest set of financial figures showing that new contracts at the end of 2012 actually fell compared with the previous quarter.

EE's numbers show that it added 201,000 new users in Q4 of 2012, some 49,000 fewer than it managed to add in the previous quarter. Given that Q4 was when the big 4G launch hit some of our bigger town and cities, that has to be a sign that the network's controversial pricing is rather at odds with what we're prepared to pay for better Twitter access in town centres.
