Accredited EE partner Intouch Advance has confirmed that superfast 4G has now been ‘switched on’ in an additional 13 new towns and cities.

The 4G rollout, which offers customers speeds up to five times faster than 3G, is proving a huge success with Intouch Advance’s UK business customers both in and out of the office. This includes the likes of Flexiform, MRC Transmark, Cubic Transportation Systems and SG Gaming.

Adam Chadwick, IT Systems Engineer, SG Gaming said:

“We are seeing much better speeds when using 4G, as one would expect. Employees who use this connectivity are happier because they can work more quickly and don’t need to spend as much time out on site fighting a slow connection. In my personal experience 3G used to struggle to get over 1MBPS. The new 4G, from the exact same location, gets upwards of 20MBPS.”

Simon Pollard, Chief Executive Officer, Intouch Advance, said:

“We are very proud to be chosen to be one of EE’s accredited partners; one of the top three in the UK. This is owing to our high level of accreditation, which we have achieved through the provision of exceptional customer service.

“4G makes running your business on the go quicker, easier and less stressful than ever before. Checking e-mails, downloading documents and video calling on the go will be unbelievably quick from now on. Video conferencing on location, uploading massive files to websites and streaming HD clips in meetings are now all possible.

“We value and care about our customers and want to offer them new and innovative ways of communicating. 4G coverage means that we can provide a superior service for our customers.”

To mark the start of the UK Bank Holiday weekend, 4G was switched on in Bradford, Bingley, Shipley, Doncaster, Dudley, Harpenden, Leicester, Lichfield, Loughborough, Luton, Reading, St Albans and West Bromwich. 4G from Intouch Advance’s partner, EE, now covers the homes and businesses of 50% of the UK population. This means that superfast coverage has now expanded to more than 50 UK towns and cities in total, just five months after launch. By the end of June, EE is committed to launching 4G in another 30 towns and cities, bringing the total to 80.

Olaf Swantee, Chief Executive Officer, EE, said:

“Our business customers want a 4G network that covers the markets in which they operate, and that is exactly what we are building for them – and at a phenomenal rate. We’re set to cover more than half of the UK population by Summer, staying ahead of the schedule that we set for ourselves at launch, and continuing to demonstrate the amazing value of 4G mobile to many organisations with different challenges and different needs.”
