EE has just confirmed that it’s 4G UK service will launch on October 30th, which was confirmed by the networks boss, Olaf Swantee who released a statement today:
“We are delighted to announce that the official launch of our new customer brand, EE – offering the UK’s first superfast mobile 4G and fibre broadband service – will take place on 30 October 2012,”
“This is a significant milestone for the United Kingdom, and for the people and businesses of our country who will now be able to enjoy the huge advantages of superfast 4G technology for the first time.”
The EE launch comes after to controversal acceptance of the network launching on the 1800MHz spectrum before any other network had a chance to apply.
Other networks will have to wait till the 4G auction later this year, which has annoyed a fair few people as EE will be launching in 19 cities on October 30th and another 6 by the end of the year, with 98% of the UK covered by 2014, which is a huge head start for the network
