25% of new EE corporate customers sign up to 4G service

Mobile operator EE has revealed details about 4G usage among its business customers.

EE published its financial results for 2012 on Tuesday, and while the company refrained from providing any hard figures for the exact number of customers who signed up to the new 4G service, it offered a sneak peek into how many business users had signed up to the network by the year's end.

The company announced that one in 10 of its existing corporate customers were either trialling or using the new superfast 4G mobile broadband network by the close of 2012. The mobile operator further claimed that approximately 25 per cent of its new SMB customers are embracing the superfast 4G service.

EE also said that the company had added over 200,000 new postpaid customers during the last quarter of 2012. That figure, however, is significantly lower than the 313,000 new postpaid customers the company added during the same quarter just a year before.

Meanwhile, the firm promised that the 4G network will have as many as 65 cities covered by June 2013 - approximately the same time rivals O2, Three and Vodafone are expected to roll out their own 4G services.
