EE on Thursday announced that its 4G service is now accessible by 75% of the U.K. population, after its network went live in a further 13 locations.

"Our fast, nationwide rollout continues, with hundreds of new sites being switched on every month," said Olaf Swantee, CEO of EE, in a statement.

"4G is now a well-known and well understood technology, with businesses and communities increasingly demanding 4G coverage because they see the significant economic benefit," he said.

EE's network is now available in 263 major towns and cities, and more than 2,500 villages and small towns. Among the latest areas to receive 4G coverage is Witney, the constituency of Prime Minister David Cameron.

"Now the latest generation of mobile technology has arrived, Witney is now an area where it is even more attractive to live, to work and to do business," he said. "The arrival of 4G makes this part of Oxfordshire one of the best connected areas in the U.K."

The 13 new locations are: Buckingham, Burntwood, Chesham, Chesterfield, Dalkeith, Glossop, Hertford, Rugeley, Sheerness, Thornaby-on-Tees, Ware, Wickford and Witney. Together they are home to 300,000 people.
