EE has announced another raft of locations to be bathed in 4G. They include the Prime Minister’s home constituency of Witney and a rather fantastic town called Burntwood where handsome and intelligent people live. We’ve even got the smallest park in the world, so smoke on that.
4G is now also available through EE in Wickford, Ware, Sheerness, Buckingham, Chesham, Chesterfield, Dalkeith, Glossop, Hertford, Thornaby-on-Tees and Rugeley … known locally as “Rujlee” ;)
David Cameron said something about the arrival being a boost for local businesses and how it’ll make his part of Oxfordshire one of the best connected areas in the UK. Meanwhile, it means for me that I’ll be able to download and watch a movie while I’m in the queue at my local chip shop. :)
The EE superfast 4G now covers 75% of the population and 263 major towns and cities plus 2,500 villages.

With EE the first to launch 4G in Witney, the Prime Minister comments on the ‘huge boost’ for residents and businesses in his constituency
28th August 2014 – EE today announced that 4G is available to customers in 13 additional large towns across the UK. From Dalkeith in Midlothian, to the Prime Minister’s constituency of Witney, over 300,000 more people can now enjoy the benefits of superfast mobile internet.
As the roll out of 4G from EE continues, more and more communities that are traditionally underserviced by mobile and fixed telecommunications services are getting access to superfast broadband for the first time.
David Cameron, Prime Minister and MP for Witney, said: “The arrival of EE’s 4G mobile services in Witney is a huge boost for local companies and people living in the area. Now the latest generation of mobile technology has arrived, Witney is now an area where it is even more attractive to live, to work and to do business. The arrival of 4G makes this part of Oxfordshire one of the best connected areas in the UK.”
Olaf Swantee, EE CEO, said: “4G is now a well-known and well understood technology, with businesses and communities increasingly demanding 4G coverage because they see the significant economic benefit. Our fast, nationwide rollout continues, with hundreds of new sites being switched on every month to bring 4G to more places, often giving people a fast broadband experience for the very first time.”
As of today, 4G from EE is widely available in: Buckingham, Burntwood, Chesham, Chesterfield, Dalkeith (Scotland), Glossop, Hertford, Rugeley, Sheerness, Thornaby-on-Tees, Ware, Wickford and Witney.
Earlier this month, EE was ranked number one mobile network in the UK following comprehensive independent testing from RootMetrics®.
