EE has launched superfast 4G mobile broadband in Bournemouth and Poole.
EE claims their 4G service will offer businesses and residents across the city an improved, faster experience when using the internet on their mobile phones, laptops or tablets – with speeds five times faster than 3G technology.
EE is the only 4G mobile network available in Dorset.
Neil Maxfield, Regional Manager for Dorset, EE, said:
"The arrival of 4G mobile in Bournemouth and Poole is great news for our customers. 4G from EE is like having fibre broadband to your mobile phone, and allows customers to access the content they care about without the frustration of pages being slow to load, or apps not connecting.
"With Christmas coming up, there’s never been a better time to ask Santa for a smartphone. 4G unlocks its true potential – whether surfing social media, streaming live matches from the web, or downloading a large work files.
"The launch of 4G means that the people of Bournemouth and Poole will be able to have a truly connected Christmas."
The 4GEE Mobile Living Index, which will be released in full later this week, will reveal that 4G is set to transform Christmas shopping this year as faster mobile internet speeds allow people to shop for gifts from their mobile devices.
39% of 4GEE customers say they will buy their gifts on their smartphone or tablet this year – up from 15% last year – with fashion, electronics and books the most popular purchases.
EE launched the UK’s first 4G mobile network last summer - with Southampton one of the first 11 cities in the UK to receive it.
