EE’s 4G LTE Home Broadband Service launched in Rural Cumbria

Monday, November 11th 2013

EE has launched 4G based fixed wireless home broadband service aimed particularly for rural areas. Remote areas of Cumbria are expected to get the service first. For the data allowance of 25GB, the cost is expected to be around £25 per month. Reports say that the new set up will cost 10% less than what would have been through setting up a new fixed line.

According to EE, on completion the network will provide average speed of 24Mbps covering a wide area. Also, by March 2014 more than 100 square miles from Wigton (north) to Threlkeld (south) will be covered when the deployment is over. Isolated part of Bodmin Moor in the rural South West of England also will be laid with fixed 4G service in summer 2014.

The new 4G (LTE) based fixed wireless home broadband service is expected to be available from December 6 this year with several special packages included. Customers ordering for the package will have to pay extra for Huawei B953 router which supports maximum download speed of upto 100Mbps. It comes with common features such as LAN ports, Wi-Fi support, one RJ11 port and USB port.
