EE lights up 4G LTE roaming in China

UK mobile operator EE has become the first British network to offer 4G LTE roaming coverage in mainland China.

The carrier's list of 4G roaming countries has not yet been updated to reflect the change, however we've been seeing solid LTE coverage through China Unicom on our EE SIMs in the Beijing area in recent days. Unicom operates FDD-LTE — the flavor of 4G used by most Western networks — on Band 3, which also happens to be EE's main LTE band at home. Its main rivals, China Mobile and China Telecom, only use TDD-LTE frequencies, which are incompatible with most 4G phones sold in Europe. So naturally, the Unicom pair-up makes most sense for a Euro network like EE.

The company is clearly targeting low price points to battle Nokia in the Windows Phone ecosystem.
