Everything Everywhere trials 4G in Cornwall: video
Everything Everywhere and BT Wholesale have collaborated to conduct the UK's first live customer trial of next generation 4G LTE broadband. The trial saw the two companies share their fixed telecommunications and mobile technology to provide wireless broadband to customers across 25 square kilometres of rural Cornwall.
The 4G LTE trial in Cornwall focussed on extending reach and accessibility of broadband to customers in rural areas, helping the government to reach its target to extend broadband of at least 2Mbps to the last 10% of the population by 2015. In this video Everything Everywhere CEO Olaf Swantee introduces the trial from Trerice, the Elizabethan manor house in the heart of the trial area. You will also see live demonstrations of 4G LTE in action within the community and hear directly from triallists on how the technology is positively impacting on their lives and businesses.
EE is the most advanced digital communications company in Britain, providing mobile and fixed line services to 27 million customers, and will soon become the first company in the UK to provide 4G mobile services alongside fixed-line fibre.
EE is the company that runs the Orange and T-Mobile brands in the UK, and will be launching its new superfast 4G brand – EE – in the coming weeks.
Its 4G service will cover a third of the population by the end of 2012 and its fibre service will cover 50% of the population by the end of the year.
EE's mobile service currently provides coverage to 99% of the population with 2G and 98% of the population with 3G
