EE rolls out twice-as-fast LTE-A in London

Everything Everywhere, or in short EE, the joint venture between Deutsche Telekom and Orange S.A in the United Kingdom, 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 the move covers only 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.
