Next wave of rural towns to get EE 4G revealed

4GEE coverage continues to spread across England, Scotland and Northern Ireland. What are the next set of towns to get superfast mobile internet from EE?

If you live in rural Devon, and are still waiting for 4G to make its way to you, then here's some good news - you may have it soon.

EE's announced it's turned on 4G in 14 rural locations across the UK. The towns to get access are:

  • Carrickfergus
  • Castleford
  • Dumbarton
  • Ilkeston
  • Jarrow
  • Kirkby
  • Mansfield
  • Newton Abbot
  • Ramsbottom
  • Swinton
  • Totton
  • Walton-On-Thames
  • Wimborne Minister
  • Wishaw

A nice spread across England, Scotland and Northern Ireland then. It also takes the total number of towns and cities with 4G up to 229, with 2,500 smaller places also being able to get superfast mobile internet.

As well as the towns above, EE's providing 4G at Glastonbury, with its herd of fibre-glass cows providing coverage for festival goers. Not the best looking statues to be sure, but as someone who grew up around Milton Keynes, I've got a soft spot for pointless cow-shaped sculptures.

Last month, the network unveiled its plans to roll-out 4G across more rural areas of the country and commuter routes, including stations, airports, motorways and A roads. The expansion means EE 4G currently covers 73% of the population, and it's expecting to reach 90% by the end of 2014.
