EE and Vodafone to Bring LTE to Channel Tunnel

The Channel Tunnel will be covered by LTE services offered by EE and Vodafone by summer 2014.  2G and 3G services are also set to go live in the North Running Tunnel (UK to France) in March 2014.

Separately, EE announced that 2 million customers are now using its network -- twice the target set for 2013. The network is now delivering average speeds of 24-30 Mbps in twenty cities across the UK.

 “We’re incredibly proud of being the first UK operator to bring 4G to the UK and, in just over a year, exceeding our target by reaching two million 4G customers across the country. We continue to have particular success converting our existing base to 4G, with approximately two out of three new 4G customers moving over from Orange and T-Mobile plans," stated Olaf Swantee, CEO of EE.
