EE Mobile Service Brings 4G LTE To London, More UK Cities Soon
By 2014, a full 98% of the UK's population should be covered. In due time, over 700 EE-branded stores will be opened, and both Orange and T-Mobile customers are slated to benefit from the change. EE will also launch a fibre broadband service to homes and businesses with fixedline internet speeds typically ten times faster than today's average broadband speeds. Four cities – London, Bristol, Cardiff and Birmingham – are switched on today for the company's engineers to begin live testing and systems integration, in readiness for the customer launch.
Of course, a network isn't much without devices, but it'll have the Galaxy S III LTE, Nokia Lumia 920, Lumia 820 and HTC One XL right out of the gate. No, there's no iPhone, but considering that the next iPhone may be the first to support LTE, perhaps that'll change shortly.
