EE boosts 4G capacity with new small cells

EE will deploy 411 new small cell deployments to deliver greater 4G capacity to cities and towns across the UK.

Small cells use existing street assets such telephone boxes to help enhance street-level mobile coverage in busy areas where it’s impractical to build larger sites.

Adding to the 200 announced just over one year ago, this takes EE’s street-level mobile sites to over 600.

Birmingham, Sheffield and Brighton will be amongst the latest areas to benefit, alongside seasonal hotspots like Newquay, Southend-on-Sea and Paignton

James Hope, Director of Mobile Radio Access Networks, EE, said: “As demand for data continues to rise, small cells are becoming an increasingly integral part of our mobile network.”
