EE to double 4G Speeds in Ten Cities this Summer

Is yours one of them?

EE has announced it's to double-speed its 4G services in ten cities this Summer, enabling lab speeds of 130Mbps that will boost headline 4G speeds to 80Mbps plus, and double the average speeds for 4GEE customers to more than 20Mbps.

EE is doubling the amount of 1800MHz spectrum bandwidth dedicated to 4G, from 10MHz to 20MHz. This will give 4GEE customers increased capacity, and access to some of the fastest mobile speeds in the world.

EE is forecasting mobile data traffic to grow by as much as 750% in the next three years alone. The increased speeds and capacity are vital for mobile operators to continue to deliver a consistently high quality experience.


The ten cities to get the upgrade are *opens golden envelope* - Birmingham, Bristol, Cardiff, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Leeds, Liverpool, London, Manchester and Sheffield.

Mark Newman, Chief Research Officer, Informa Telecoms & Media, commented:

"By rapidly expanding both the coverage and capacity of its network, EE has taken the necessary steps to maintain and extend its advantage in the UK 4G market and, importantly, to leapfrog itself into a leading position in the European LTE market. EE's strategy to focus on network investment as a point of differentiation is helping to build a world-class, high-quality digital infrastructure that will prove as vital to future economic growth as investment in the roads and railways."
