EE has bridged the two million 4G customer mark, over twice the target the company had set for 2013. The company has seen the fastest sign-up rate for 4G services in the world, outside of South Korea. 1 million 4GEE customers were achieved in the first 10 months with the second million joining in just four further months.
"We're incredibly proud of being the first UK operator to bring 4G to the UK and, in just over a year, exceeding our target by reaching two million 4G customers across the country. We continue to have particular success converting our existing base to 4G, with approximately two out of three new 4G customers moving over from Orange and T-Mobile plans."
"This year, our network priority is to deliver the benefits of superfast mobile internet to more of the UK and invent even more innovative ways for our customers to make the most of their 4G experience."Olaf Swantee, (CEO) Everything Everywhere
