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