EE, known as Everything Everywhere, is set to launch the first broadband 4G Network which will be available to 20 million people across 16 cities in the United Kingdom. Trials for the same technology will begin in cities like London, Bristol, Cardiff, Derby, Glasgow and many others within weeks.
The technological revolution will be launched at the Science Museum in London which will depict the collaboration of two mega brands Orange and T-Mobile into one singular Brand – EE. Through this new technology, one would be able to watch TV, make video calls, play live multi player games and stream films on the go.
A twitter account for the same has been officially launched where constant updates regarding the 4G services are being made. The twitter handle @ee said: ‘Hold on to your hats, Britain: things are about to get a whole lot faster.’
The EE name will extend its retail network with more then 700 stores across the nation. The network will cover more then 70% of the country by the end of 2013 and 98% by the end of 2014 covering almost 27 million people across the United Kingdom.
Apart from the 4G network, EE will also offer fibre broadband connection, sporting speeds 10 times faster than the average broadband speed currently found in the UK.
EE will be initially available on devices like the Samsung Galaxy SIII Lte, Nokia Lumia 920, Nokia Lumia 820, HTC One XL, Huawei Ascend P1 LTE and Huawei WiFi Dongle. Olaf Swantee, the Chief Executive Officer had also hinted launch of the iPhone 5 thereby adding another device to the EE Kitty.
Existing T-Mobile and Orange customers will be first to “have the opportunity” to upgrade to EE. Looking at the premium handsets, it seems that the United Kingdom’s first 4G Service will be expensive for consumers but prices are likely to be competitive which would add to £40 a month on contract.
