EE's 4G Network Hits 50 Per Cent of the UK: Are You Covered Now?

By Sam Gibbs on at

Another 12 more towns across the UK have just had their 4G switch flipped, bringing EE's LTE network to some 50 per cent of the UK population. 74 towns and cities are now 4G-enabled, but does that mean your neck of the woods is now basking in super-speed mobile broadband?

Ashton-under-Lyne, Chatham, Gillingham, High Wycombe, Merthyr Tydfil, Oldham, Oxford, Rochester, Runcorn, Sale, Stafford, and Wigan are now all covered by 4G in their metropolitan areas. For London that apparently means all the way out to the M25, so that might mean a large swath of the suburbs for most places.

Recently I've had quite a few people tell me that their 4G coverage is spotty at best, and even though EE's forging ahead with one of the fastest network roll-outs to date, it's still not fast enough for some people.

Do you now have 4G coverage in your area, and if so, have you or will you jump on board? EE's 30-day rolling contracts have sure made the decision easier, but you still need to cough-up for a 4G phone, though.
