EE still running the 4G market

EE is still running the 4G market, with a company prediction that there will be one million 4G customers by the end of the year.

The mobile phone network has announced that 318,000 people are currently running their super fast mobile broadband service. Around 1,600 medium and large businesses have also signed up, according to ibtimes.co.uk.

EE has released financial results for the first quarter of 2013 and claimed last month that it wanted to reach the big one million this year. With O2, Vodafone and Three all hot on its heels to offer 4G sims in the next few months, competition could be stiff.

Chief Financial Officer of EE, Neal Milson said: “Today’s results are in line with our expectations, and we are making good progress focusing on high value segments.

“We expect to strengthen our industry leadership position in the year ahead as the 4G roll out continues and we introduce double-speed 4GEE.”

Sky.com reports that this is the first time the network has released any subscriber numbers, since it launched the service in November 2012.  Average speeds are expected to reach 20Mbps in ten different cities by the end of June, according to company predictions.

EE has around 27 million customers and expects to have 4G coverage for 70 per cent of the population by the end of the year.
