UK based mobile network operator EE has announced that the seaside town of Rhyl in North Wales is the 200th town where it has deployed its LTE network.
EE officially switched on 4G mobile broadband in 13 towns across the UK this week, bringing the total to 200 places and 72% of the UK population.
EE's internal switch on requirements mean that towns aren't considered officially declared until at least 80% of the area is covered.
Olaf Swantee, CEO of EE said: "Today we switch on our 200th 4G town just 18 months after pioneering the service in the UK."
"We now have over 2 million customers using superfast 4G. That's the fastest rollout and uptake of any technology in Britain, and means that the UK's mobile digital infrastructure is now ahead of many other nations."
