Yes, it’s the regular 4G update from who else, but EE. Today is October 1st, so with the dark nights hitting us, it’s time to get some speedy t’internet on our phones so that we have something to do on the cold bus ride home. Coverage now includes the Royal Military Academy in Sandhurst. EE have sent in a cheeky lookie-likey to promote the Sandhurst coverage..
.. but there’s also coverage in Abingdon, Ashton-In-Makerfield, Corringham, Faversham, Fleetwood, Formby, Hebburn, Helensburgh, Hoddesdon, Holywood, Hythe, Prestatyn, Spennymoor, Tilbury, Waltham Abbey, Wombourne and the mighty Brownhills, home of the 40 ft high miner. Perhaps there’s a 4G mast inside the lamp.
There’s a good pub next door to this statue by the way, and an Aldi on the other side.
So now we’re less than two years into the 4G roll-out on EE and there’s 75% population coverage. An EE spokesperson has sent us a statement on this and yes, it means you can get more speed in more places. 281 towns and villages are now covered and you can get double speed in 20 cities.
ATTENTION! 4GEE ARRIVES IN 18 MORE TOWNS ACROSS THE UK, INCLUDING SANDHURST’S ROYAL MILITARY ACADEMY
EE celebrates the launch of 4G in a further 18 towns across Scotland, Northern Ireland, Wales and England
Less than two years since launch, 4G from EE now covers over 75% of the population across 281 large towns and cities and more than 2,500 villages and small towns
The switch on includes Prince Harry’s old training ground – the Royal Military Academy in Sandhurst
Wednesday 1st October, 2014 – EE is expanding its 4G network across the UK to reach another 18 large towns in all four corners of the UK – from Helensburgh in Scotland to Holywood in Northern Ireland, and Prestatyn in Wales to Abingdon in England. The latest stage of the roll out brings the number of large towns and cities covered to 281, and more than 75% of the population.
With 4G also being switched on in Sandhurst, Sergeant Major better keep his eyes peeled. Recruits at the Royal Military Academy (RMA) can now enjoy all the benefits of 4G, whether uploading selfies on the sly or ditching the Ordinance Survey in favour of seamless Google Maps.
To mark the next phase of 4GEE roll-out, EE commissioned photography with a Price Harry lookalike, Roddy Walker. Prince Harry is one of the most well-known RMA Sandhurst graduates in recent years (images available here).
Even ‘His Royal Highness’ can’t resist some superfast web browsing

Whether you’re at work or on the go, 4GEE lets you do so much more. From superfast web browsing to streaming HD video, even the most disciplined people won’t be able to resist getting on their mobile!”
