UK operator EE grew its 4G customer base by 1.7 million in Q3 2015, helping it to maintain its lead as Europe’s largest 4G operator.
The operator has a total of 12.6 million 4G customers and is said to be on track to exceed its target of 14 million 4G customers by the end of the year. 4G customers are said to represent more than 52% of the total EE mobile customer base.
