EE to extend 4G coverage by 2017
Telecoms service provider EE has announced a significant £1.5 billion investment in network development that will extend the company's 4G coverage to 99 per cent of UK locations by the end of 2017.

The firm is to focus on the rollout of new 'micro networks' across up to 1,500 local communities in the months ahead, while 20 of the UK's most populous cities will see 4G service strength boosted to provide transfer rates of up to 150 Mbps.

Chief Executive Officer at EE Olaf Swantee said: "With the £1.5 billion investment plan, and our unceasing desire to continually improve the breadth and performance of our network, we are at the forefront of the new mobile era."

He added that mobile broadband is playing an increasing role in people's lives and this is therefore a service where the business feels it can deliver wide-ranging benefits through a focused investment on improved coverage.
