EE's 4G rollout could be more extensive than thought

Super-fast mobile broadband from Everything Everywhere could be available across major cities by the end of the year.
EE's 4G rollout could be more extensive than thought
Everything Everywhere's (EE's) initial rollout of super-fast 4G mobile broadband networks could be far more extensive than originally thought.

It was originally assumed by many that the deployment would cover only a very limited area of the UK, but sources told the Telegraph the service will be available across major cities by the end of this year.

Within a year of launch, coverage will be "widespread", the sources claimed.

EE is today (September 11th 2012) set to unveil plans for its 4G mobile broadband rollout in a briefing at London's Science Museum.

Rival operators have opposed Ofcom's decision to allow EE to deploy 4G technology this year, ahead of the rest of the market.

Whereas EE is able to reuse its own airwaves to support 4G services, other networks have to wait until the forthcoming spectrum auction before they can start offering 4G propositions.

Despite these complaints, a recent poll from EE found 93 per cent of UK businesses want the technology to be available as soon as possible.
