4G-focused UK network EE has announced that it's switched on LTE coverage in twelve new towns today — Antrim, Bridgend, Burnley, Coleraine, Leigh, Livingston, Macclesfield, Newtownabbey, Nuneaton, Pontypool, Sittingbourne and Tamworth. In addition, the operator says it's improved coverage in routes between Edinburgh and Glasgow, and Cardiff and Swansea.

The news comes a week after a major outage left some EE customers without service overnight last Thursday, which the company attributed to "gremlins" in its network. Earlier this week EE unveiled new cheaper 4G plans alongside its first own-branded LTE handset, the £99 "Kestrel."

Have they sorted out the My Account section on their website? I had a sim last year and couldn't access it once in 3 months and had no way of managing my account online. Rubbish.

I just signed up with another PAYG sim and the exact same thing... An error saying that "our techies are working really hard to sort this out". Really hard? For 6 months? They need someone who knows what they are doing.

I've just ordered the new M8 on the website or at least tried to, got to the end of the process, then got a message to phone a number with a reference code, I phoned said number was held on the phone for 5 minutes, I then spoke to a girl who said they were having problems with the site, so I'm left here wondering if I will get my phone.
