Altrincham Forward has welcomed the switch on of cutting edge 4G mobile services from mobile network EE in Altrincham on 24 July, making the town one of the most connected places in Europe.

Superfast 4G mobile services – also known as LTE – are on average five times faster than 3G services and are expected to make the area even more attractive for local residents and businesses, enabling them to do more on their smartphones and tablets while on the move. EE is currently the only mobile operator in the UK offering super fast 4G mobile.

Independent research has found that 4G is likely to drive economic growth locally by improving business productivity and helping businesses increase mobile-commerce, while also allowing residents to quickly and easily access social network sites, stream TV and music, and access government, banking, shopping and other online services on the go.

Councillor Matt Colledge, Chair of Altrincham Forward and Leader of Trafford Council, said: “The arrival of 4G mobile services in Altrincham will be a great benefit to local businesses and residents. This latest generation of mobile technology is a fantastic move forward, and will help make Altrincham an even better connected place in which to live, work and do business.”

Olaf Swantee, CEO of EE, said: “I’m delighted that 4G is arriving in Altrincham, and am looking forward to seeing it make a big difference for residents and businesses in the area. 4G will change the way that people use their smartphones, tablets and mobile Wi-Fi, both for work and for pleasure.”
