22 Mar 2013

EE, the UK’s largest mobile network operator by subscribers, has announced the launch of its fourth-generation services in Cumbria, in a move which it claimed would bring high speed broadband to homes and businesses in one of the UK’s most rural areas for the first time. With the operator having been running a mobile broadband trial in the region since May 2012, it has confirmed that it aims to reach 84% of the Northern Fells by summer 2013. The cellco has also noted that it expects to offer residents in the area access to average download speeds of between 8Mbps and 12Mbps, with headline speeds of more than 20Mbps, with tariffs starting from GBP15.99 (USD24.15) per month.
