EE have now enabled their 4G service in Benfleet, Caerphilly, Caldicot, Canvey Island, Carlisle, Chepstow, Cwmbran, Grays, Harlow, Hatfield, Kenilworth, Rayleigh, Southport and Worksop.
People living in those areas will now be able to access EE's superfast 4GEE network, which is five times faster than 3G. However, they'll have to wait for double-speed 4G which is currently only available in 20 cities in the UK.
The newly connected towns brings the total number of 4GEE connected towns and cities in the UK to 131. EE are planning to hit 98 per cent UK 4G coverage by the end of 2014 and right now over half of the UK can access EE's 4G network - with coverage sitting around the 60 per cent mark.
EE are certainly making the most of their 12 month 4G head-start and the speed of their network roll-out is leaving their rivals in their wake. Vodafone's and O2's 4G network are only currently only live in 8 cities in the UK, while Three won't even launch 4G until the end of the year.
EE are in prime position to grab a massive share of the 10 million users who will signup for 4G over the next 12 months , a figure which was suggested by recent research conducted by Deloitte. Can O2, Vodafone and Three compete with the relentless 4G onslaught from EE?
