UK network EE promises super fast LTE-A by summer

LTE_advanced_logo

UK network EE (Everything Everywhere), is rolling out 4.5G data speeds in London. This is the LTE-Advanced (LTE-A) technology, which ups the data transfer speeds from the conventional LTE’s 150 Mbps to 300 Mbps.

For now it will only cover London with no word on LTE-A’s expansion in the rest of UK just yet. South Korea is the pioneer of LTE-A speeds, but they were bound to reach other markets sooner rather than later.

While LTE-A will greatly improve data speeds EE’s voice network is still stuck on 2G. EE is currently spending ¬£279 million to try and rectify the issue, though.
