Computer Weekly reports UK mobile operator EE plans to upgrade its 4G infrastructure in more than 2,000 areas by June 2024 as part of the UK Government’s Shared Rural Network (SRN) initiative to extend coverage in rural areas

EE has already upgraded its 4G network in more than 800 areas across the UK since the SRN deal was signed and it has now pledged to extend 4G in a further 1,532 areas by mid-2024 totalling 2,385 in this phase of the programme.

Commenting on the latest move, BT Group chief executive

Philip Jansen said: “Today, we’ve made a renewed commitment to boost rural connectivity, helping improve mobile performance regardless of location. The investment BT has made in rural areas means we have the infrastructure in place to extend our 4G coverage footprint even further, minimising the number of new sites we need to build to ensure everyone has access to reliable connectivity.”
