EE UK to bring LTE coverage to 17 new cities by March 2013
Everything Everywhere UK, the carrier merger between Orange UK and T-Mobile UK, will add 17 new markets to its list of 4G-supported ones by March 2013.
UK's only 4G provider for now announced that it will close 2012 with a bang, bringing next-gen network coverage to 18 cities instead of the estimated 16.
The 17 new towns and cities are Bradford, Chelmsford, Coventry, Doncaster, Dudley, Leicester, Luton, Newport, Reading, Rotherham, St Albans, Sunderland, Sutton Coldfield, Walsall, Watford, West Bromwich and Wolverhampton. The extended coverage will allow 4 million new UK residents to get a taste of LTE (as long as they have an LTE-enabled phone, of course).
The rest of the UK carriers are still on 3G but that should change once the auction of 800 MHz and 2600 MHz spectrum is complete, hopefully, next year.

as for the price of 4gee it may look alot of money to pay but if u think about it all the plans come with unlimited calls and texts ok the internet may not be massive but its a great deal for the signal
