EE commented “With 4G available from £18.99 per month with a free Samsung Android smartphone, and pay as you go deals from just £10 for 1GB of data and 2,014 free voice minutes for the coming year, EE predicts a record-breaking month of 4G sales in the run up to Christmas”.
The new towns will benefit from download speeds of around five times faster than those on 3G. The operator launched 4G in October, 2012 and has not been slow in rolling out its 4G network which now covers 60% of the UK population.

Smartphones and tablets on 4GEE are going to be a very popular present this Christmas as people across the UK continue to embrace mobile living and we make the superfast service available in even more places.”
