Right now, in the U.K., EE is the only carrier providing 4G. With the BlackBerry Z10 and the Q10 both 4G ready, if you want 4G speeds you'll need to jump on to the EE network to get those speeds. While there isn't U.K. wide coverage yet, EE are slowly adding more and more cities and towns to their 4G list and have recently added 12 towns, making it a total of 62 4G areas.
The 12 new towns are Aylesbury, Berkhamsted, Billericay, Blackpool, Brentwood, Dewsbury, Huddersfield, Lytham St Annes, Marlow, Pontefract, Thame and Windsor. This now means that EE now provide 4G coverage to 50% of the U.K. population. EE also plan to add 18 more locations by the end of June and reach 70% on the U.K. by the end of 2013.
We should see other U.K. bring their 4G coverage later this year. Three already promised when their 4G comes, it wouldn't come with a premium price. Vodafone and O2 UK have yet to confirm anything further.
Are you in located in the added towns? Will you be switching to or getting a new contract on EE? Sound of in the comments.
