Mobile phone network Everything Everywhere or EE reveals its plan to double the speed of 4G mobile network in 10 cities in the UK this summer giving the region one of the fastest mobile internet service in the world.
With theoretical speed rising to 130mbps, smartphone users will be able to download, upload, and transmit high definition videos as fast as fibre optic wires. This is faster than any current application requires.
EE chief executive, Olaf Swantee said: “We are ensuring that the UK remains at the forefront of the digital revolution. Having already pioneered 4G here, we're now advancing the country's infrastructure again."
The improved service will initially be available in Birmingham, Bristol, Cardiff, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Leeds, Liverpool, London, Manchester and Sheffield.
EE will also extend its 4G internet service to 80 new locations by June. This move is expected to affect 55per cent of the population. People in the 80 new locations will have access to download speeds that are five to seven times faster than existing 3G networks.
