Another Nine Towns Get EE's 4G in the UK

By Sam Gibbs on at

EE's storming rollout of 4G across the nation continues at a record pace, even if its subscriber numbers aren't quite as rocketing. Congratulations to Barnsley, Chorley, Coventry, Newport, Preston, Rotherham, Telford, Walsall, and Watford as you're all now 4G-enabled. That brings the total to 37 towns and cities across Britain covered by EE's LTE network.

I wonder how fast the others will be able to push their 4G networks out now that Ofcom's auction is done and dusted. Something tells me they've already started with the backhaul at least. It'll be good to finally get some price competition out there, and hopefully claw-in EE's sky-high LTE pricing.
