City Council Welcomes Superfast 4G Mobile Services

Cambridge City Council has welcomed the switch-on of cutting edge 4G mobile services from mobile network EE in Cambridge this week, making the city amongst the most connected places in Europe.

Superfast 4G mobile services – also known as LTE - are on average five times faster than 3G services and will enable users to do more on their smartphones and tablets while on the move.

Cllr Sarah Brown, Executive Councillor for Community Wellbeing, said: "The arrival of 4G mobile services will be a great benefit to those who live and work in Cambridge. Cambridge is already one of the world’s best connected cities, and the latest generation of mobile technology will build and strengthen that position."

Olaf Swantee, CEO of EE, said: "I’m delighted that 4G is arriving in Cambridge, and am looking forward to seeing it make a big difference for residents and businesses in the area. 4G will change the way that people use their smartphones, tablets and mobile Wi-Fi, both for work and for pleasure."
