Britain's temporary 4G monopolist EE promises to "double" its network speed in twelve cities from tomorrow as the company attempts to achieve superior offerings and differentiate itself from rival operators who are set to swamp the market in the autumn.

The company's boss Olaf Swantee admitted that EE wanted to "stay one step ahead" of the competition with its launch of faster 4G mobile internet connections.

The network will carry a theoretical maximum top speed of 150Mbps, and will double the current average speeds to "up to" 30Mbit/s, EE claimed - adding the boast that its service would canter past mobile networks in the US and Japan and happily nuzzle against South Korea.

Birmingham, Bristol, Cardiff, Derby, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Leeds, Liverpool, London, Manchester, Nottingham and Sheffield should see the network's speed shoot up on 4 July.

Existing subscribers - around 500,000 at the last headcount - who are interested in an upgrade will get a speed increase at no extra charge during their current contract, said EE.

The carrier added that it would launch 4GEE Plans on 17 July that would allow customers to share their text, voice and data allowances. ®
