EE announces its next wave of 4G cities

The network went live at the end of October, with 10 cities initially being offered superfast 4G from EE, hitting 16 by the end of this year. Next year, EE will bump up that number further.

EE has just announced a further 17 towns and cities will get access to 4G and enhanced 3G services. The lucky locations are Bradford, Chelmsford, Coventry, Doncaster, Dudley, Leicester, Luton, Newport, Reading, Rotherham, St Albans, Sunderland, Sutton Coldfield, Walsall, Watford, West Bromwich and Wolverhampton.

If you live in one of those areas, you have until March 2013 to run down an existing contract. That's the provisional date for turn on. The rest of the country? EE is still planning to have 98 per cent coverage by the end of 2014, bot nothing confirmed as yet.

If you already have 4G in your area, there's some good news for you too. EE has also confirmed that it will be improving the services in the current 4G cities, which should translate to a better signal and a faster connection if you've already been tempted to sign up. The network is also claiming to have covered 40 per cent of the population with the DC-HSPA 3G signal, which means faster speeds if you fall out of a 4G zone. Around 42Mbps, which is about half the speed of 4G.

Not as good as 4G, but not bad as back up if you do wander out of the city confines.
