EE has revealed that a further 17 cities will be added to its 4G network, meaning that its total coverage of the UK will grow by about 4 million people across 35 cities before the end of the auction expected in March 2013.
The new cities to get a 4G network are Bradford, Chelmsford, Coventry, Doncaster, Dudley, Leicester, Luton, Newport, Reading, Rotherham, St Albans, Sunderland, Sutton Coldfield, Walsall and Watford.
