4G comes to Lincoln first from EE

This story is over

Network operator EE announced it will launch its 4G mobile broadband network in Lincoln in time for Christmas.

EE will be the first 4G mobile network to cover Lincoln and Grimsby.

4G mobile connectivity can have speeds up to five times faster than 3G technology, where available.

Cheryl Barrass, EE Regional Manager for South Yorkshire and the Humber, said: “4G from EE is like having fibre broadband to your mobile phone, and allows customers to access the content they care about without the frustration of pages being slow to load, or apps not connecting.”

EE’s 4G plans start from £18.99 per month and include a free Android smartphone from Samsung. Usually 4G data contracts costs more than a 3G data bundle.

Network operator 3 is also set to launch its 4G network next year and said it would not charge extra for such data plans.
