4G has arrived in Lincolnshire

Network operator EE announced it will launch its 4G mobile broadband network in Lincolnshire in time for Christmas.

Some EE customers in Lincoln have already reported seeing the 4G logo on their devices as the operator was testing the network in the past week.

4G mobile connectivity can have speeds up to five times faster than 3G technology, where available.

Cheryl Barrass, EE Regional Manager for South Yorkshire and the Humber, said: “4G from EE is like having fibre broadband to your mobile phone, and allows customers to access the content they care about without the frustration of pages being slow to load, or apps not connecting.”

EE’s 4G plans start from £19 per month and include a free Android smartphone from Samsung. Usually 4G data contracts costs more than a 3G data bundle.

Network operator 3 is also set to launch its 4G network next year and said it would not charge extra for such data plans.

Vodafone and O2 are launching their 4G networks too, with wider expansion across the country in the new year.
