4G coverage

  • EE

  • T-Mobile

Bigger and better by the day

Our 4GEE network now covers 263 towns and cities across the UK - that's 75% of the population. And double speed 4GEE is available in 20 UK cities.

Thanks to 4GEE, our customers are doing more on their mobiles, tablets and laptops - working or enjoying social media, music and videos.

And it's not just 4GEE we've been working on. We've beefed up speeds on our 3G network with a technology called DC-HSPA.

All our 4G phones are compatible with DC-HSPA, so when you're not covered by 4GEE, you can get our fastest 3G speeds, on the UK's biggest 3G network. We're also replacing all our old transmitters to reduce dropped calls by 50%.

You can check out where the latest coverage is on our Coverage Checker.

Performance and coverage may vary between 3G and 4GEE as the technologies operate over different frequencies. Your signal is also affected by your device, congestion and location.

Using 4G abroad

4GEE is only available in the UK. See more information on using your EE device abroad.

Using 4G devices without 4GEE coverage

If you move out of a 4GEE area, your 4G device will connect to our 3G network - the biggest in the UK - and provide you with fast 3G speeds. Or our 2G network.

4G coverage on other networks

We were the first network to launch 4G in the UK in October 2012. It now covers over 73% of the UK population and 229 towns and cities (based on outdoor coverage).

Other networks launched 4G in the second half of 2013. The information and coverage statistics that they have published online are shown below:


36% population coverage. 


41% population coverage. 


So far, 3 have not quoted population coverage for their 4G network, but state that 4G is already live in 36 large towns and cities including London, Birmingham, Manchester, Reading and Liverpool. 

Whilst we cannot accurately predict their population coverage, based on our own experience and data we would estimate their population coverage to be around 16 – 20%.

The full details are on everyone's websites.
