EE will double 4G LTE capacity, average and top speeds by June
Everything Everywhere, or EE, the UK’s only 4G LTE carrier has enjoyed nearly half a year of no competition 4G service to customers and now it has announced that it will even further expand its LTE outreach.

As other operators in the UK are preparing to roll out their LTE networks, EE announced it will double capacity, average and top speeds. After the upgrade, EE customers will enjoy top speeds of up to 80Mbps and averages of around 20Mbps.

The carrier will also double its frequency capacity in the 1800MHz spectrum to 20MHz.

The first customers to get the update by June will be those in London, Manchester, Sheffield, Liverpool, Birmingham, Bristol, Cardiff, Edinburgh, Glasgow and Leeds.

EE won’t be enjoying its undisturbed 4G LTE ride for long, though. Vodafone, O2, and Three are all getting ready to roll out LTE networks within months. Right now, adoption of 4G LTE in the UK has not been all that quick, and EE has around 1 million of its subscribers on 4G, and that’s only 4% of EE’s subscriber base.

With that they will also increasing the price of your 'contract'. Over, my 1.5 year contract my rental charges have been increased 2 times in the name of inflation. EE's network is very awful as well !

I hope EE's customer service improves soon. Had hell on trying to get some accurate information from them and everyone I spoke to at EE gave confused answers at best. The common response was that they are all new to EE's systems, though the network has been up for months. I expect better for my £41 a month. My advice to prospective EE customers is to wait for competitor 4G networks to come on stream...
