EE to expand 4G coverage in 43 locations across the East of England in 2021

24 Feb EE to expand 4G coverage in 43 locations across the East of England in 2021

EE will upgrade more than forty 4G sites in the East of England in 2021 as part of the Shared Rural Network (SRN) initiative to extend coverage in rural areas across the UK.

SRN is a programme between the UK’s four mobile network operators and the UK Government to extend 4G coverage to 95 per cent of the UK’s geography by the middle of this decade. The upgrades announced today fall under the first phase of the Shared Rural Network, where EE will invest to significantly reduce ‘partial not-spots’ by 2024.
