EE has today announced a new agreement that they have signed with AT&T, allowing tourists to use its 4G network when visiting the UK, allowing those with both a 4G smartphone and a 4G contract in their own country, to access the 4G network whilst roaming in the UK.

Alongside which the deal will also allow UK-based EE customers to do the same when the service launches in the first half of next year.

“Technology is not just shaping how people book and research holidays; but what they look for when they are choosing a country to visit. From finding their way to local landmarks, to avoiding the Oxford street crowds by shopping on their tablet, tourists are increasingly looking for fast and reliable mobile experiences when they travel abroad,” said Olaf Swantee, CEO of EE.

“With the biggest and fastest 4G network in the UK, we can provide our partners’ customers with the best mobile experience to stay connected when they visit the UK.”

By Christmas EE’s 4G network will cover 160 towns and cities.
