4GEE – superfast performance and more

EE’s superfast 4G network offers a revolutionary mobile internet experience, delivering speeds typically five times faster than 3G[2]. The power of 4G enables tablet users to push the limits of their devices even further, allowing them to download, stream and browse the content they want to even quick than before. In addition to superfast speeds, EE tablet customers will also benefit from:

- EE Film – the UK film service that combines 2 for 1 cinema ticketing, listings, trailers, film downloads and streaming in one place

- A discount on EE superfast fibre broadband – so they can get blistering speeds at home and on the move

EE’s 4G service will be available in 18 towns and cities by the end of 2012, bringing superfast speeds to even more consumers and businesses across the UK. EE will also launch 4G in a further 17 UK towns and cities by March 2013.

Paul Jevons, Director of Products and Devices, EE, said: “We’re pleased to be announcing our first Android tablets on the EE brand just in time for Christmas.  With these new devices, we’re extending the possibilities of what 4G has to offer to an even wider range of users, so they can work or play with greater freedom than ever before.”
