Everything Everywhere bringing 4G to 33% of population this year
Everything Everywhere's super-fast 4G mobile broadband network is set to be rolled out to one-third of the UK population by the end of the year.

The network operator, which runs the Orange and T-Mobile brands, has been granted permission to use its own spectrum to support the launch of the UK's first 4G services.

Birmingham, Bristol, Cardiff and London are already involved in live testing and systems integration ahead of the commercial launch, while the telecoms giant has promised to roll the technology out to further towns, cities and rural areas in 2013.

Next year, the company's 4G coverage is set to reach 70 per cent, growing to 98 per cent in 2014.

Olaf Swantee, chief executive of Everything Everywhere, said: "Our plans to revolutionise the UK communications market with a faster network and an exciting new brand for the digital age are built on solid investment and a simple belief that customers deserve better."

Rival operators O2, Vodafone and 3 Mobile are expected to launch their own 4G networks next year, once the UK spectrum auction has been held.
