After it was announced that BT will be acquiring EE for £12.5 billion, the UK based carrier has today announced that they will also be further investing into 4G coverage.
The news was revealed earlier this week, and stated that the carrier will be investing £1.5 billion into their 4G network in order to add more coverage to rural areas, and provide faster 4G connections within cities.
EE have said that they plan to complete this by 2017, which is when they will also be looking to cover 90 percent of the population with double speed 4G, as well as implement 4G+ in the UK’s 20 busiest cities by the same year.
“Today we’re announcing the next stage with a commitment to, once again, radically improve mobile coverage, this time with a strong focus on rural UK, all while continuing to increase speeds and capacity with deeper coverage in more cities.
“Smart devices are playing an ever-increasing part in our customers’ lives in every part of the UK. With the £1.5bn investment plan, and our unceasing desire to continually improve the breadth and performance of our network, we are at the forefront of the new mobile era that is changing customers lives every day.”
