UK 4G users smash 1 million mark

Tuesday September 10th 2013

More than one million people in Britain have signed up to superfast 4G broadband with EE, the company has revealed.

The mobile network provider announced that it had reached the milestone four months ahead of target and just 10 months after it launched its 4G network in October last year.

Olaf Swantee, CEO of the firm, said that 4G had "transformed" the mobile habits of British consumers and businesses.

"We have seen one of the fastest adoption rates in the world and I'm immensely proud to announce today that we have reached a significant milestone - one million 4G customers," he said.

"We know that all communities across Britain want 4G, not just those in the big urban centres, and we're committed to continuing to roll out superfast mobile at this record breaking pace."

Rivals O2 and Vodafone launched their own 4G networks last month.

More than 100 towns and cities across the UK have access to the new fourth generation mobile internet, at faster speeds than those found on networks in the rest of Europe, the US and Japan, EE claimed.
