EE has announced that two million customers have now signed up to its 4G LTE services, doubling its target of one million customers by the end of 2013.
The UK operator, which signed up one million 4G LTE customers four months earlier than expected, claimed that the second million arrived in a four month period.
EE also revealed that 4,000 enterprise customers have also signed up for 4G LTE.
The operator, who claims that its 4G sign-up rate is the fastest in the world outside of South Korea, said that it would cover 70 percent of the UK population by the end of January.
Figures released by the operator also showed that average data use across its network grew by 70 percent over the course of 2013, with social media and video driving the biggest increases.
“This year, our network priority is to deliver the benefits of superfast mobile internet to more of the UK and invent even more innovative ways for our customers to make the most of their 4G experience,” commented EE chief executive Olaf Swantee.
In December, the operator announced that it would spend €325 million on upgrading mobile voice services in 2014.
