EE announced today that its total subscriber base of 4G networks in the UK crossed 7 million, with the addition of a staggering 5.7 million customers in 2014.
The record growth, according to EE, has been fueled by unprecedented expansion of its 4G networks across the UK, covering 350 new cities and towns with populations of 10,000 and above in 2014 alone. This has led to 80% of the UK population being covered by the end of the year.
Apart from cities, nearly four thousand villages across the country are under EE's 4G coverage- of which over a thousand were added in the last few months of the year. 2014 has indeed been EE's year in terms of data usage as well. The company recorded six times the amount of data usage in 2014 as against 2013. This was bolsteredd further by the introduction of 4G+ in London and other busiest areas in the UK.
With the huge cash influx post the acquisition by BT, EE is set to turn around another phenomenal performance in the year ahead.
