Mobile network operator EE has announced the next stage of its urban focused 4G roll-out across the United Kingdom, which will see a further 27 towns being enabled to support the new superfast Mobile Broadband technology by June 2013 (i.e. 65 UK towns and cities in total).

At present EE’s new 4G (1800MHz) based network covers roughly 45% of the UK population, which is expected to reach 55% by summer 2013 and should ultimately extend to 98% by 2014. It currently offers internet download speeds that are “up to five times faster than 3G” but could go a lot faster in the future.

The 27 New Towns (Going Live Between April and June 2013)
Aldershot
Ashford
Basildon
Basingstoke
Blackpool
Bracknell
Camberley
Colchester
Crawley
Farnborough
Guildford
Horsham
Huddersfield
Leatherhead
Maidstone
Milton Keynes
Oldham
Oxford
Redhill
Reigate
Sevenoaks
Stevenage
Tonbridge
Royal Tunbridge Wells
Warrington
Wigan
Woking

The roll-out is currently said to be ahead of schedule. A nice distraction perhaps from all the recent talk of a £10bn sale (here).

    No Telford or Shrewsbury ? Disappointed :(

    Best wait until the other Mobile ISP’s get going, compare offers and don’t just jump on the EE bandwagon.

    The speeds aren’t very good and the value isn’t either.

    Three’s offering will probably be superior like it it’s with 3G.
