4G Coverage on EE

Our 4G coverage

We’re still the only UK network to report our 4G geographic coverage – and we’re leading the way in bringing fast 4G to more parts of the UK. Ofcom report that we have a 87%* 4G geographic coverage in the UK - that's more than any other operator.

And we’re not stopping there. We’ve built more than 500 brand new 4G sites in rural areas in the last 12 months, and we’ll build hundreds more in the next 12 months. We’re also improving our indoor 4G coverage with more low frequency mobile spectrum, and targeting coverage on roads and railways.

*According to Ofcom’s Connected Nations Report Summer 2020. 87% geographic coverage equates to more than 99% of the population.

4G in more places

Turning “not spots” into 4G “hotspots”

As part of our plan to bring 4G to more places, we've switched on our low-frequency 800MHz spectrum on 1000 sites across the country, filling in 5,000 square kilometres of 4G ‘not spots’ overnight and improving indoor signal in 500,000 homes. 

Watch the video to see how 4G is already transforming the lives of people living in remote areas.

And we've got the awards to prove it

We’ve been awarded the UK’s best network 21 times in a row. RootMetrics tested the four UK networks (EE, Vodafone, O2 and Three) and we're the UK's best 5G network.
