EE has announced that it will be extending 4G roaming connectivity to 14 additional countries, following the rollout of the service to cover Spain and France earlier this year.

The UK carrier's roaming agreement will allow EE customers to enjoy 4G connectivity while travelling to Canada, Germany, Italy, Luxembourg, Moldova, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, UAE, Russia, Saudi Arabia and Switzerland. Customers visiting South Korea will also be able to enjoy 4G roaming thanks to a new deal that is set to go into effect tomorrow.

Customers wanting to avail 4G roaming have to buy a data roaming bundle, and while the 1 GB bundle is no longer available, EE is offering 500 MB data for £25 to users roaming within the EU.

EE has stated that all consumer and small business cutovers will be eligible to enjoy 4G roaming in these territories starting today, and has mentioned that corporate customers will be able to follow suit soon.

EE users, are you excited about the carrier's move to bringing 4G roaming to additional territories? Which country do you want to see covered by the carrier?

What a beautiful move from EE. Let us hope that the cost won't be extortion.

 Z30 ™  Best mobile platform to date.

Australia not in there,
and that's a - sorry- Pommie carrier?

No fun in the sun... 8-)

 BlackBerry? I premdict the future's gonna be chenomenal! 

The advantage of 4G is the speed of it, which is of very little use when you're roaming overseas and burn through the allowable data in about one and a half seconds.

Useful where there are no data limits, not so much where you have 5MB a day.

Seems very expensive. Let's hope there is good 4G coverage in the countries mentioned or u could be paying £25 and still getting 3G

Maybe now they can concentrate on getting 4G out to their customers in the UK how are actually paying for this nonexistent service on a monthly basis.

Maybe they should start selling Blackberry's again, that would be a start! Doesn't look like they will tho...

There's no point having 4G If you don't have the data limits to go with it 500mb is pathetic in any country I have 20gb on Ee at home and still have to limit my activities somewhat
