Superfast mobile internet coming to Blackpool, Oxford, Guildford, Oldham, Maidstone, Stevenage, Wigan and Woking before June.
4G mobile broadband is to reach a further 27 UK towns by the time summer is here.
The UK's first and only 4G mobile network, EE, previously known as Everything Everywhere, aims to have switched on its 'superfast' signal in 65 towns and cities by June 2013.
Next in line are: Aldershot, Ashford, Basildon, Basingstoke, Blackpool, Bracknell, Camberley, Colchester, Crawley, Farnborough, Guildford, Horsham, Huddersfield, Leatherhead, Maidstone, Milton Keynes, Oldham, Oxford, Redhill, Reigate, Sevenoaks, Stevenage, Tonbridge, Royal Tunbridge Wells, Warrington, Wigan and Woking.
It's estimated that 55% of the UK population will then be able to access 4G.
Olaf Swantee, EE's chief executive, said: "We're set to cover more than half of the UK population by summer, staying ahead of the schedule that we set for ourselves at launch and continuing to demonstrate the amazing value of 4G mobile."
4G is the 'next generation' of mobile broadband, used by smartphones and tablets to access the internet wirelessly on the move. It offers download speeds at least five times faster than existing 3G technology.
Although EE is currently the UK's only major provider of 4G mobile, other networks are expected to follow later in the year.
EE's 4G network covers 45% of the country at present. At the end of January, an extra nine towns went live and this week Newbury became the 28th location.
