EE in the UK roll out 4G to 29 more cities for Christmas

Tis the season to be jolly and all that. It will be even more fun if you're an EE BlackBerry 10 user and happen to live in one of the 29 new cities where the UK network are releasing LTE into the wild. By the end of December EE will have 4G in place in 160 cities across Great Britain - sending them leaps and bounds in front of the competition - but then again, they were first to launch LTE, so that's not surprising. 

The good news for Team BlackBerry is that all BlackBerry 10 smartphones are 4G ready, so if you want the fastest data speeds then EE is worth considering. It is more expensive than 3G but you get what you pay for. 

Press Release

 

December 4, 2013 – EE, the UK’s most advanced digital communications company, today announced that 4G is now live in 10 more towns and cities, bringing the total to 141. Masts across the UK are being upgraded every day as 4G demand increases, and a further 19 places will be covered by superfast 4GEE by Christmas.

4G from EE goes live today in Bath, Bournemouth, Brighton, Cambridge, Darlington, Newcastle-under-Lyme, Northampton, Poole Portsmouth and Redcar. These places will now benefit from superfast internet access on mobiles, tablets and laptops, helping people and businesses to do more online, on the go, whether that’s working or enjoying, social media, music and videos.

By Christmas, customers in Aberdeen, Braintree, Cheltenham, Chester, Dundee, Durham, Exeter, Gloucester, Grimsby, Ipswich, Lincoln, Middlesbrough, Norwich, Peterborough, Plymouth, Stoke-on-Trent, Swansea, Swindon and York will also be able to benefit from 4G.

With 4G available from £18.99 per month with a free Samsung Android smartphone, and pay as you go deals from just £10 for 1GB of data and 2,014 free voice minutes for the coming year, EE predicts a record-breaking month of 4G sales in the run up to Christmas.

 Olaf Swantee, Chief Executive Officer, EE, said:

“From online banking and mobile shopping, to streaming music and using maps, 4G is enabling us to do more of our favourite things quickly and easily on the go. Smartphones and tablets on 4GEE are going to be a very popular present this Christmas as people across the UK continue to embrace mobile living and we make the superfast service available in even more places.” 

The 4GEE Mobile Living Index, which will be released in full later this week, will reveal that 4G is set to transform Christmas shopping this year as faster mobile internet speeds allow people to shop for gifts from their mobile devices. 39% of 4GEEcustomers say they will buy their gifts on their smartphone or tablet this year – up from 15% last year – with fashion, electronics and books the most popular purchases.

I was lured away from EE by the (sim only) one plan on 3, can't say I'm regretting it yet...

Great news! I live in Exeter and this is very welcome, I have a 4G dongle for the laptop and will be able to use it fully come Christmas. It might push me towards a Q5 as well..
