UK mobile operator EE today announced plans to invest £1.5 billion in network improvements over the next three years, with the aim to deliver 4G to more than 99% of the population. The company also plans to roll out double-speed 4G to 90% of the UK by 2017. The plan is the result of pressure from the UK government for operators to tackle signal 'not spots'.

Rural investment is on the cards, which will bring enhancements for both voice and data services to 90% of the UK, connecting every home to minimise areas where reliable signal is hard to come by. These pledges are to see EE combat inevitable problems that will arise through changes of how the general population is using mobile infrastructure.
