Operator installs more mobile masts and upgrades 4,000 existing sites to further spread of its 4G network
Mobile operator EE has released information about upgrades to its mobile network, as it seeks to achieve its goal of 95 percent UK coverage of its 4G network by 2020.
In the last six months, the BT owned operator has installed 105 new sites with mobile masts, and has upgraded 4,000 existing locations to 4G over the past year.
Last month EE revealed it was also tackling rural broadband with the installation of a 4G antenna at premises where, because of their remote location, they cannot get fast broadband speeds via a traditional fixed-line connection.
But EE is not neglecting its core 4G network and it said the over the last 12 months it has filled more than 12,000 square kilometres of mobile not-spots.
And the 105 new locations is into virgin territory (mostly Scotland, north Wales and northern England), with most locations previously having no mobile coverage from any other operator.
