Today, Everything Everywhere (EE) declared £1.5 billion of additional funds for their Network Evolution Programme. Most of this will go to tightening the integration of Orange and T-Mobile.
EE in its announcement said they are few weeks away from expansion by combining 2G and also 3G network services from T Mobile and Orange to their own customers. In short, EE will have the widest 3G network coverage in UK.
The latest fund will be invested for a period of three years and will result in customer devices automatically selecting the better signal from any of the above network providers in case their own network connectivity is weak.
CEO at EE, Olaf Swantee, commented, "With mobile data increasing 250 percent over the past two years, we are making these investments so we can deliver on our ambition to provide the UK's most reliable, biggest and best mobile data network," as reported by IT Pro.
The Chief technical officer of EE, Fotis Karonis said, "Everything Everywhere is committed to building a world-class 4G network for Britain."
The funds allotted will be invested to ensure that EE is set to bring 4G networks to the UK and also on upgrading the company's mobile backhaul just to make sure data travels quickly among different cell sites.
