Digital communications company EE says it will bring its 4G mobile network to cover Milton Keynes in the spring.
The 4G rollout, which the company says gives speeds up to five times faster than 3G coverage, will include a further 27 towns across the country by June 2013.
Olaf Swantee, EE’s chief executive, said: “We’re set to cover more than half of the UK population by summer, staying ahead of the schedule that we set for ourselves at launch, and continuing to demonstrate the amazing value of 4G mobile to many organisations with different challenges and different needs.”
Between April and June, 4G will be launched in Milton Keynes and towns and cities across the country, including Aldershot, Colchester, Crawley, Huddersfield, Oldham, Oxford, Redhill, Warrington, Wigan and Woking.
At the end of January, nine new 4G towns were switched on, and this week 4G coverage landed in Newbury – the 28th live 4G town.
