EE moves closer to 95% UK coverage thanks to Glencoe 4G cover
Mobile network EE has switched on 4G at the peak of the Scottish mountain Glencoe - 2,800 feet above sea level.
The network is currently upgrading 100 sites per week in their bid to increase UK cover.
The new 4G cover will service the 150,000 tourists who visit Glencoe Ski Centre each year.
Glencoe Mountain Resort MD Andrew Meldrum commented on the new coverage saying, "4G is a great way to keep people connected on the mountain, whether it’s finding out which run their friends are on, or live-streaming their latest tricks. The added network coverage is also critical to support our efforts to make the mountain as safe as possible for everyone who visits this iconic part of Scotland."
EE CEO Marc Allera also commented, "We want to provide a 4G connection everywhere people go. We’ve got to 3,000 feet, and we’ll go higher and further to keep people connected. Helping our customers share great moments, and helping the Mountain Ski Centre teams keep those customers safe, is exactly what our network is all about."
Over the past twelve months EE has doubled it's 4G geographic coverage in Scotland, aiming for 80 per cent cover by the end of 2017 and are aiming for 95 per cent UK geographic coverage by 2020.
